The Queensbury daycare worker accused of sexually abusing two kids he was taking care of pleaded not guilty on Monday. The 48-year-old sat frumpy in the middle of the fifth row in Queensbury Town Court, wearing a gray shirt and black and white diagonal striped tie. It’s much different than the jail jumpsuit he briefly wore last week.

Saladin was arrested a week ago and charged with two counts of sexual abuse of two young girls under the age of 11 plus two child endangerment charges.

He had worked at Willows Bend Daycare in Queensbury for the past couple of years.

The owner of that daycare said Saladin passed a state background check and had no criminal history.

However, the parents of a little girl suspected and talked to her about the alleged abuse. They called the state abuse hotline. The parents of another little girl also had suspicions, but it took a little more to coax it out of her. Once they did, the charges in the case were built.

Saladin does not have an attorney. He also worked as a babysitter and childcare provider.
