He served time and now takes up space on Maryland’s Sex Offender Registry. But two years ago, Zarayasi was helping his wife run a daycare out of the couple’s home in Montgomery Village.
“I think she should have been shut down immediately,” the victim’s mother said.
Elsa de Perea's daycare is now legally open for business without Zarayasi. She declined comment to ABC7.
