According to Chron.com, Day care operator Jessica Tata fled the United States to Nigeria Saturday night after being charged last Thursday afternoon in the house fire that claimed the lives of four children. “How did this happen?” is the question many are asking law enforcement officials and prosecutors.
Reports show that though Tata, 22, was charged Thursday afternoon, the charge wasn’t actually filed until Sunday, after Tata had already left the country.
Now, the finger pointing begins. Was there enough evidence? Or, Was there not enough evidence? There was no arrest even though a Crime Stopper’s tip indicated Jessica Tata was preparing to flee the country and that she was a flight risk.
