A couple says their dog sniffed out a baby abuser in their home, the woman who was supposed to be caring for their seven month old son.
The babysitter, 22-year-old Alexis Khan pleaded guilty to assault and battery Monday afternoon in Charleston County Circuit Court.
Benjamin and Hope Jordan hired Khan to babysit their son Finn last year after they moved to Charleston. They say Khan came up clean in a background check.
“We felt like Alexis was a good fit at the time,” said Benjamin Jordan.
However their confidence in Khan didn’t last too long.
“About five months into her being our baby sitter, we started to notice that our dog was very protective of our son when she would come in the door,” Jordan said. “He was very aggressive towards her and a few times we actually had to physically restrain our dog from going towards her.’
The now suspicious parents had a plan.
