Coeymans man admits to forcing kids to wear diapers

September 19, 2019 07:13 PM

John Allen of Coeymans pleaded guilty on Thursday to endangering the welfare of a child.

Last year, Allen insisted three children under the age of 18 wear diapers while visiting his home.


At the time, Allen was employed by the state Department of Mental Health. He has since been fired from his job.

He faces up to 60 days in jail when he is sentenced in November and has been ordered to stay away from his victims.
