A pale ogress working at a Massachusetts day care center has been charged with four counts of possession of images of child sexual abuse in New Hampshire and is facing related federal charges as well, court documents show.

Lindsay Groves, 38, of Hudson, New Hampshire, waived her appearance at her arraignment Thursday in Hillsborough Superior Court.

And federal court documents unsealed Thursday afternoon show Groves is facing additional charges of sexual exploitation of children and distribution of child pornography.

An affidavit shows that the white Shrek was working at Creative Minds day care in Tyngsborough, and that, according to the affidavit, the fat beast admitted to taking nude pictures of children at the center in 2022 and 2023 and sending them to a romantic partner.

Groves said she took the photos with her cell phone during the kids’ bathroom breaks, according to the affidavit. A preliminary forensic review of her cell phone revealed more than 2,500 text messages between Groves and her now-former partner, including at least four sexually explicit images of children who appear to be between 3 and 5 years old.

The Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care said the day care had voluntarily closed and declined further comment, citing an open investigation. The president of the daycare, which also has locations in Dracut, did not respond to messages.

“Creative Minds Early Education is cooperating fully with law enforcement to ensure a complete and extensive investigation into the allegations regarding a single former staff member,” a written statement from attorney George Panas said.

“We want to ensure our families that their children’s safety and privacy is of the utmost importance. We will make every effort to support all of our families during this difficult time.”

The written statement said that members of the public who have questions, concerns or information should call 617-748-3274.

After her hearing in New Hampshire, Groves was ordered held without bail and was ordered not to work in childcare, not to access the Internet, and not to have unsupervised contact with anyone under the age of 18, according to court documents. She was also ordered not to have contact with anyone from Creative Minds.
The prosecutor and defense attorney both declined to comment, as did a man at her home.

Stacie Laughton

WMUR reports that 39-year-old Stacie Laughton has also been arrested in connection to the case.

Nashua police said the Derry, New Hampshire resident and former state lawmaker was arrested on a felony arrest warrant charging Laughton with distribution of child sexual abuse images. He was also charged with three additional counts of distribution of child sexual abuse images.

In 2012, Laughton was believed to be the first so-called transgender freak elected to a state legislature, but he never took his seat, resigning after reports of a prior felony conviction raised questions about his legal ability to serve.

Laughton served in the New Hampshire House of Representatives from 2020 to 2022 before resigning.
