John Burbine: Daycare worker accused of sexually abusing 13 infants, toddlers
In what law enforcement officials are calling one of the most 'disturbing' cases they've ever prosecuted, a Massachusetts daycare worker faces so many counts of child sex abuse that he'll he will 'never get out of jail' if convicted.
Wakefield man John Burbine, 49, has been indicted on 100 counts of abuse as he allegedly videotaped himself raping and molesting 13 small children, some of whom were as young as 8-days-old.
Burbine allegedly perpetrated the abuse while providing day care for households in various towns around Boston.

'This is among the most troubling and disturbing cases of child abuse ever prosecuted in Middlesex County,' Middlesex District Attorney Gerard T. Leone said in a statement.
Burbine has been charged with aggravated forcible rape of a child, subsequent offense (40 counts), aggravaged indecent assault and battery on a child, subsequent offense (17 counts), posing a child in a state of nudity (12 counts), posing a child in sexual conduct (11 counts), possession of child pornography (13 counts), dissemination of material harmful to a minor (2 counts), and operating an unlicensed child care program.
Chldren from Stoneham, Medford, Newton, Reading, Melrose, Woburn, and Waltham were among those victimized.
The children were both male and female,from 8 days to 42 months old.
The assaults took place from August 2010 to August 2012.
Prosecutors said he and his wife, Marian, 'advertised child care and tutoring on various websites, including parenting and coupon sites.'
'The Waterfall Education Center offered short and long term child care, group child care, overnight newborn care, and summer camp alternative care.'
Burbine often assisted Marian on the job as she told parents he was an experienced and problem-free sitter.
Leone told the Boston Globe his office first received a complaint about the children's treatment at Waterfall in late September and his office had a court order to shut down the facility pending a criminal investigation.
Crusading: Prosecutor Leone said if convicted Burbine will never be released
Marian, 46, faces six counts of reckless endangerment of a child and two counts of operating an unlicensed day care business.
However, prosecutors said they believed Marian was likely ignorant of her husband's alleged crimes.
Prosecutors said that they believe that the wife did not know about the crimes that her husband was committing while he assisted her with her business.
Burbine was arrested this September and arraigned on Oct. 5 in Malden District Court.
Citing the dangerousness statute, the judge ordered him held without bail.
After his arrest, more victims were discovered along with video evidence.
An arraignment date on the new charges has yet to be scheduled.
Mariane was arraigned on Oct. 1 in Middlesex Superior Court in Woburn.
She was freed on bail with the condition she wear a GPS bracelet for tracking, remain in her home at night, and stay away from the victims, clients, employees, and children under 16.
She will return to court on Dec. 20 for a pre-trial hearing.
