Woman accused of daycare molestation re-captured, denied bail

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A couple accused of horrific sexual child abuse at a Mission Valley home daycare is back behind bars. Anita Kaczmarczyk faced a judge after fleeing to Mexico. Her husband headed to Taiwan, where he was arrested.

Anita Kaczmarczyk will sit in jail without bail as the case of over four counts of sexual abuse and molestation against children takes another twist.

Kaczmarczyk's defense attorney says the bondsman knew about her trip out of the country, but while down in Mexico, Deputy District Attorney Lucy Weismantel says Kaczmarczyk got into a little trouble with Mexican authorities.

"Mrs. Kaczmarczyk was being held on charges of robbery," Weismantel said.

The detainment in Mexico kept her from a jury trial on July 28 and issued the subsequent no-bail warrant, which brought her back across the Mexican border to face those eight charges where both she and her husband are accused of molesting children between a few months to just over two years old while operating a daycare.

"Considering the nature of the charges I believe she is a risk to the community and I would ask for no bail," Weismantel said.

Kaczmarczyk's original bail was $150,000 and the DA's office says this time around, the court can't take a chance that she leave the country for good.

"She's looking at 60 years to life and she has a certain incentive to flee. Her husband had previously fled to Taipei which is a country with no extradition treaty," Weismantel said.

Mark Kaczmarczyk may have bought a one-way ticket to Taipei, but the district attorney's office negotiations had him on a plane back to San Diego. His bail is now set at $2 million as he awaits trial.

In the meantime, the deputy DA told the court keeping Anita Kaczmarczyk behind bars is in the best interest of everyone.

"Considering the nature of the charges I believe she is a risk to the community," Weismantel said.

Both will be tried Feb. 7. If convicted, they face 60 years to life on child molestation charges, and an additional eight years per charge of child abuse.
