Governor's bill would have exposed Burbine


Asked if DCF had done anything wrong in handling Burbine’s case, Health and Human Services Secretary JudyAnn Bigby told reporters Friday, “No, they did what they were supposed to do.”

When they were allegedly abused, Burbine’s victims ranged in age from eight days to three-and-a-half years old. They are from Stoneham, Medford, Reading, Melrose, Woburn and Waltham. Burbine is scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 12 at 9 a.m. in Middlesex Superior Court.
