The suit alleges assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress by Horace Barstow, as well as negligence by his wife, Barbara Barstow, owner of ABC 123 Daycare.

NORRIDGEWOCK, Maine (AP) _ The owners of a Norridgewock day care center that was shut down after four children were molested there have been sued by the state Department of Health and Human Services on behalf of one victim.

The suit alleges assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress by Horace Barstow, as well as negligence by his wife, Barbara Barstow, owner of ABC 123 Daycare.

The 67-year-old Horace Barstow was sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty in June to unlawful sexual contact.

The Morning Sentinel  reports that the state filed the lawsuit on behalf of a 5-year-old boy in foster care. The suit claims Barstow touched the boy's genitals.

The Barstows denied the charges in written statements filed in court. They had no lawyers of record listed in court documents.
