    Three young boys charged with rape

    8-year-old charged with rape, kidnap
    November 20, 2007 - 10:11AM

    Three boys aged between eight and nine were being held on Monday in a detention centre in the US state of Georgia on charges of kidnapping and raping an 11-year-old girl in the woods near a suburban apartment complex, officials said.

    The alleged attack happened on Thursday and the girl's mother reported it to authorities yesterday, Acworth police Captain Wayne Dennard said.

    "The victim said they were playing outdoors and the girl was forced into a wooded area where she was sexually assaulted, where one of the boys raped her," Dennard told The Associated Press.

    The three boys - an eight-year-old and two nine-year-olds - were charged with rape, kidnapping, false imprisonment and sexual assault, Dennard said. They were due in juvenile court this afternoon. Their names were being withheld because of their age.

    Dennard would not comment further.

    The girl's mother told local TV station, WXIA-TV, that her daughter had played safely with the boys in the past.

    However, the girl's mother reportedly said that on Thursday the boys had dragged the girl down a path into a wooded area.

    She told the WXIA-TV one of the boys sexually assaulted her daughter as other two threatened her with a rock.

    The girl had been too afraid to tell her of the attack until Saturday, she said.

    "How can an 8- or 9-year old think of doing something like this to a little girl?" the girl's mother reportedly told WXIA-TV.

    "I mean, how do they know what to do at that age?" she asked.

    The father of one of the two 8-year-old boys told a local reporter his son said the incident had been consensual.

    The boy's father said the girl had made the accusation only after her parents found out she had had sex.

    "There was no violence involved," LeBlanc told the Associated Press.

    "This is a clear case of a girl who didn't want to get in trouble with her parents."

    Prosecutors had not received the case report from police, nor had they decided whether to try the suspects as adults.

    Acworth, 48 kilometres north-west of Atlanta along the shores of Lake Allatoona, is a town of about 17,000.

    "This wouldn't be normal anywhere, but especially not Acworth," Dennard said.

    I see three possibilities since there's a lack of any evidence.

    1) The boys are little monsters and did in fact rape the girl.

    2) They were playing doctor and it went to far and became rape.

    3) The girl wanted to fool around but didn't want to get in trouble and lied about what happened.

    Edit: 4)Or its just a false accusation and nothing happened.

    Thoughts?

    Well, if the authorities have enough evidence to arrest them and hold them, then I have to think that the little bastards did it.

    But still, I'm one of those silly fools who believes that people are guilty until proven innocent in a rigged, bleeding-heart, liberal, doo-gooder court trial.

    In a case like this they'd be held anyway despite if there's any evidence or not.

    This is one of those the devil is in the details kind of stories.

    and that's why we have the courts to hear all the evidence.

    Huh? The cops can't even arrest someone without enough evidence to charge them with a crime! Where the hell have you been living ...in a cave?
