Joseph Garbarini
Parents of the victims of Joseph Garbarini, the pedophile who was sentenced to more than 60 years last October for the sexual abuse of kindergarten girls at Plano's Hunt Elementary school, are suing the school district and the principal for ignoring the predator in their midst.

An investigation of the teacher was launched after a 5-year-old girl told her mother about inappropriate touching during a diaper change. It turned out Garbarini had a twisted fetish. Investigators found literally thousands of diapers, many of them dirty, in his home.

They found a bedroom decorated in a princess theme, with shackles fastened to a toddler-sized bed. They found a dog cage Garbarini apparently slept in while wearing a diaper. Someone on the Internet controlled the lock. According to the complaint, filed in federal court in Sherman, parents of at least one of the victims tried to have their child moved to a different class, but were allegedly thwarted by principal Linda Engelking.

In January 2010, the complaint says, Engelking was told by a kindergarten team leader that one of the victims said Garbarini had been "tickling" her. Other teachers reported seeing him with little girls in his lap. They reported catching him holding his students' hands and even carrying one by "placing his arm underneath her buttocks." It was widely known that Garbarini photographed the little girls in his class.

Fellow teachers found out Garbarini kept a Sesame Street bag stocked with clean clothes and diapers in case someone had "an accident." He usually changed them behind a set of bookshelves that blocked him from view. When Engelking confronted him about the tickling incident, Garbarini teacher admitted no wrongdoing.

Yet the conduct he would cop to was inappropriate in the principal's eyes, the complaint says. Garbarini told Engelking the touching -- the frontal hugs, the lap-sitting and the hand-holding -- was innocent and done unconsciously, so he couldn't very well stop it on his own. Instead, he allegedly asked Engelking to task another teacher with looking in on his classroom. Perhaps someone else could give him a cue if they saw him behaving inappropriately with his students.

But no one ever followed up. In fact, the parents say the principal took no further action against Garbarini until it was already too late. "I value my male teachers too much to let these small things get in the way of their teaching," Engelking allegedly wrote after her meeting with Garbarini.

But in May 2010, it was found that Garbarini was sexually abusing his students behind the bookshelves. To secure their silence, Garbarini told the girls he would hurt their parents if they told anyone or cried out.

The parents are accusing the school district and the principal of indifference to the serial predator stalking their children. They're asking for unspecified damages.

ok i know this is not what you all want to hear but i am into bdsm and know hundreds of adult babies-- adult babies ARE NOT PEDOPHILES !!!  If this guy did this he is  just a pedophile the diapers are not gross or disgusting. If he was an adult baby  it is highly unlikely to  have the sexual desire to commit these crimes. i hope that this helps distinguish between adult babies and pedophiles 


John Money states that diaper fetishists may be sexually attracted to diaper-wearing babies, a condition he calls NEPIOPHILIA, but describes infantilism as the exact opposite -- AUTONEPILPHILIA in which the individual desires to be and impersonate a baby and DOES NOT desire an infant as a sexual partner


if you are interested in learning more about this paticular fetish look up a book by Jeiji Rice called so you want to be an adult baby

Since I've been swapped for another MK Ultra spy a couple years ago, it doesn't take long to realize that Colin County gives its charged violators a sauna before booking them.

"Rehabilitation" or a bullet to the head.  I wonder which one makes more sense.

he made them wear diapers and suck on pacifiers throughout the day while playing in the "home living center".  the children did not like playing.  they did not need diapers.  they did not need changing.  he made them and threatened/scared them.

This is merely tangential, but aren't kindergartners long since out of diapers?

"during a diaper change ?" A Five year old needs a Diaper change ? It would have to be an An Accident ..A RARE accident maybe . And then it would a change of panties Either my kid were well advanced or there was a lot more wrong in that school to start with . There would have been a real shit storm at my house if we would have tried to put Diapers on my daughter when she was 5. Peeing and Pooping at the correct time and proper place are quite the grown up thing to do at least to them at that age . I did not see / read special needs in the article so what the heck was going on there ?
