Child PREDATOR Caught – At Least 9 Little Girls Involved
(FeaturedNews.com) – Parents put a lot of trust in school staff to keep their children safe. Therefore, when a teacher faces accusations of sexually assaulting students, it sends shockwaves through the community. Such a nightmarish scenario recently hit parents in Salem, Massachusetts, when authorities arrested former gym teacher Daniel Hakim on 32 counts of aggravated indecent assault and battery on a child under 14.
Officers took Hakim into custody on June 15. He was in court for his arraignment on June 16, where he pleaded not guilty to all charges. The judge set bail at $200,000, with the added condition that he wear a GPS monitor.

Hakim worked at Saltonstall School from 2015 to 2018. He taught students in first through third grade. The defendant had previously faced accusations in 2016 of sexual assault on a fourth-grader. The school district suspended Haskins in 2018 after more accusations, and he later resigned.
The Department of Families and Children investigated the early accusation, but the accuser wouldn’t cooperate, so officials declared the matter unsupported. Still, a grand jury found grounds to charge the defendant on 32 counts involving nine other young girls.
Hakim’s attorney, Syrie Fried, told the court he is a family man with a good job and a connection to the community. Hakim could face up to 320 years in prison with a minimum sentence of 10 years if convicted.
