A 49 year old Wakefield man was arrested earlier this month on 100 counts of Massachusetts Sex Crimes Charges for allegedly raping and sexually abusing 13 children ranging in age from 8 days to 3.5 years old.
The defendant, identified as John Burbine, was charged with several sex offenses including Aggravated Rape of a Child, Indecent Assault & Battery on a Child, Unlawful Possession of Child Pornography; and Dissemination of Obscene Material.
According to the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office, the defendant had access to the child victims through the Waterfall Education Center, a child care center that was reportedly run by his wife, Marian Burbine. Middlesex County prosecutors have alleged that the defendant helped his wife at the daycare used that position to sexually abuse the children at the daycare center, which was allegedly not licensed.
Following his arrest on these sex crimes charges, police allegedly seized evidence that the defendant videotaped himself raping and sexually abusing the victims. After his arraignment in Malden District Court, the defendant was held without bail under the Massachusetts Dangerousness statute.
The defendant’s wife, Marian Burbine, was also charged in connection with this incident with Reckless Endangerment of a Child.
