10-Year-Old Girl Accused Of Raping 4-Year-Old During Game Of ‘Doctor’

Posted by   + Show Post

HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – A 10-year-old girl is facing rape charges from playing an alleged game of “doctor” with a group of children from her housing complex.

The girl, who is only identified as “Ashley,” was charged by police for aggravated sexual assault.

In April, Ashley was among a group of children who were playing doctor, KRIV-TV reports. A neighbor saw the children and called the mother of a 4-year-old boy who was also playing in the group.

Houston police say that Ashley was inappropriately touching the 4-year-old boy.

“I’ve never dealt with a child this young being accused of a crime,” Quanell X, who is working with Ashley’s family, told KRIV. “In fact this was nothing more than inappropriate horseplay that has now led to a child that is 10-years-old being charged with aggravated rape.”

Ashely was held for four days in the Harris County Juvenile Detention Center in June.

Ashley’s mother calls the situation a “nightmare.”

“It’s a nightmare even having to go through something like this because that’s my baby, that’s my baby and just the thought of her going through something like this it hurts me,” the mom, who wanted to remain anonymous, told KRIV.

She went on to state that she was not allowed to sit-in on the 45-minute questioning of her daughter.

Ashley’s hearing will be in October for sexual assault charges.

What do you mommas think? Is this a sign of a pedophile in the works or just an example of things being took too far by the adults? Should she be in juvi hall to become a very REAL criminal or released for some counseling? What say you?

 That's what I was thinking. The article is not clear enough with the information I agree with the rest of your statement too.


Quoting turtle68:

what is aggravated rape?

A 10 year old touching a 4yo is kind of off.  Not enough information, what did the other kids say happened.  Even if the 10yo walked in on mom and dad still doesnt excuse touching a 4yo ...it really doesnt excuse playing "doctor" with a 4 yo.

I felt bad for him the other kids would chant chester chester child molester. He would just lower his head and walk away sometimes he would cry. I never saw anyone visit him.


Quoting glitterteaz:

That is what I am thinking. I mean there is so many things they dump kids into juvi for that is stupid and not called for. I mean if he flat out murdered someone ya juvi cause I do not think he will ever be normal for release purposes. But this type of thing... I remember playing doctor and thinking about it now I can just imagine things that paranoid adults would have thought was going on that wasn't. 

Quoting Yurixsi:

When i was in juvi tgere was a 10 year old boy who had been there for 2 years for molesting his 4 year old cousin. the other kids there were so mean to him. I still think about why would he do something like that being so young he was 8 at the time. Another boy that was there at the time said that he had said he was just copying what he had saw on a video he found.(dads porno) he seemed like a normal kid.

Ya most Juvi hall's are too far from the families and therefore those that need the families support are not there cause they can't afford to be if they wanted to be.

I highly doubt that the girl is a sexual offender. She is a child, and children are curious about each other, looking and touching. She may have just been acting in a curious way.. It is possible that she herself is a victim of sexual abuse, and is acting out. I think it will be alot more harmful to make a big deal out of it. The kids were in a group, what was going on with the other kids? Were the older kids vicitimizing the little ones? I also ask where supervision was for the four year old. It is true that parents and caregivers often send all the kids outside to play, but very young kids, playing with older kids, need to be supervised.

While it is true that a 10 year old should know better than to touch the genitals of another child, they know this only if they have been taught. Also, again, it needs to be determined whether or not someone is touching her. The girl needs to be taught clearly that this is wrong, it needs to be made sure that she is not a victim herself, and the 4 year old needs to be supervised. I do not think that she should be charged or tha tthey should  make a huge deal out of it.

I do believe this has been pushed way to far.
