Criminal case proceedings
- A preschool and child-care center has responded to a negligence suit filed against it in January. In the answer, the Sunshine Acres Montessori School denies the allegations of the Penzels, a Lawrence family who had enrolled their daughter at the school. Daniel and Brenda Penzel alleged in the suit that the school negligently left their daughter unsupervised Jan. 28, 1992. The suit, filed in Douglas County District Court, asked for damages in excess of $50,000 for each of two counts.
