Man accused of sex abuse of 13 children at wife's child care in Woburn

Middlesex District Attorney Gerard Leone called the case the worst he has seen. Leone said Thursday the alleged victims of John Burbine ranged from 8 days to 3½ years old, and many were assaulted while Burbine was caring for them in their homes. He said Burbine has been in custody since late September as authorities investigated. He faces more than 100 criminal counts.

Leone said Burbine’s wife was unaware of the alleged abuse. She is charged with reckless child endangerment and operating an unlicensed child care business.

John Burbine’s lawyer said his client will plead not guilty at his Dec. 12 arraignment.
