Trustee Kenneth Williams is accused of sexually abusing 2 young girls at Carol's Little Cubby Daycare in Owego.
The daycare is run by his wife.
Ron Benjamin, whose representing Williams, says he'll be waiving the right of a preliminary hearing.
Benjamin says the allegations of sexual abuse, stem from 1 daycare worker who was disgruntled.
She's the mother of the 3 year old girl who was allegedly touched.
He didn't disclose the workers name, but refers to her as Denise.
In court papers, Williams, admits to putting his hands down the pants of a 1-year-old and a three-year-old girl.
But Benjamin says Williams was only checking to see if the girl had wet her pants.
As for the 1-year-old, Benjamin says her mother is convinced nothing happened.
Benjamin says both Investigator Jeff Winchell of the Owego Police Department and the Tioga County Child Protective Services caseworkers didn't provide a thorough investigation.
