AUBURN, Calif. -- An Auburn teen could be arraigned as an adult today for sexually abusing four children between the ages of 3 and 5.

The Placer County district attorney's office announced the decision yesterday to charge the 15-year-old as an adult for the abuse that allegedly occurred last August at the Colored Pencils Daycare in Auburn.

The teen is the son of the owners of the daycare, which has been closed since the arrest. 

The teen faces eight counts of child abuse of four children. The sexual abuse allegedly occurred when the boy was 14 years old. He was being held at Placer County's Juvenile Hall since his arrest last August.
