Wakefield man faces more than 100 charges in child sex abuse case; allegedly had 13 victims in towns north and west of Boston
By Peter Schworm and Martin Finucane, Globe Staff
WOBURN A Wakefield man allegedly videotaped himself as he raped and sexually abused 13 small children some as young as eight days old while providing day care for people at their homes in various towns outside Boston, Middlesex District Attorney Gerard T. Leone Jr. said today.
John Burbine, 49, has been indicted on 100 counts. He gained access to the children through the child care service, Waterfall Education Center, run by his wife, prosecutors said.
This is among the most troubling and disturbing cases of child abuse ever prosecuted in Middlesex County, Leone said in a statement.
The victims are from Stoneham, Medford, Newton, Reading, Melrose, Woburn, and Waltham. They were both male and female and ranged in age from eight days to 3 1/2 years old. The assaults allegedly occurred from August 2010 and through August 2012, prosecutors said.

3. A few words from me- "Life in prison, no parole".
Spare me any potential "He needs help and rehabilitation" talk on this thread. He needs to be put in a place where he can never again come in contact with another child.

7. US Constitution, Amendment VIII
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

8. In his case, it's more an appropriate punishment.
and not certainly cruel and unusual.
I want the penis cut off as well. He'll live to learn how to piss from his colostomy bag.

11. Oh really!
I am shocked that anybody would think such a thing was appropriate.
As I see this discussion going nowhere, I have no more to say on the subject. We will just have to agree to respectfully disagree.
Bye for now.

14. It seems that even on a liberal, progressive web site...
...the medieval side comes out when sex crimes come up, especially involving children.
Understandable in a way, but I wish the understanding that there a certain powers we don't want to grant our government ran deeper, that people understood the criminal justice system should be designed to do only what's necessary to maintain order and protect society, not to mete out revenge or "poetic" justice.
