Massachussetts man faces more than 100 counts of child sex offenses
A Massachusetts man was indicted Thursday by a grand jury for the rape and sexual abuse of more than a dozen children.
John Burbine, 49, and his wife Marian Burbine were indicted by a Middlesex County grand jury for their crimes against the children. Marian was indicted on charges of reckless endangerment and operating and unlicensed day care and John was indicted on more than 100 counts of child sex offenses, according to NBC News.
His wife had a daycare in which he had access to the children. They also advertised for tutoring services.
John sexually assaulted at least 13 infants, young boys, and young girls from August 2010 to August 2012. Many of the children were abused more than once.
The victims were from 8 days old to 3½ years old.
NBC News also reports that John videotaped the assaults. Investigators found videos that showed kids “posed in various states of nudity and engaged in sexual acts.” “It is alleged the defendant videotape recorded the assaults on the victims,” says the prosecutor’s office.
According to MyFoxBoston.com, his wife was denied in 2009 a license for a daycare because her husband was considered a sexual offender for the inappropriate touching of a 7-year-old.
