Pennsylvania man gets lengthy term for child sex abuse at mom's daycare

A man who sexually abused children at a daycare center his mother ran at her Pittsburgh home has been sentenced to several decades in prison.

David Tyus, 21, received a term of 44 to 88 years on Wednesday. He was convicted in March on numerous child rape and other sex assault charges.

Authorities said Tyus assaulted children attending the Friendships Play House daycare, as well as a 17-year-old girl who was in the house when no small children were present.

His mother, Victoria Tyus, pleaded guilty in July 2019 to child endangerment for leaving the children in her care alone with her son when he did not have required clearances. She was sentenced to probation.
