Six-Year-Old Arrested For Playing Doctor

A six-year-old boy from Wisconsin has been charged with first-degree sexual assault after playing “doctor” with two five-year-old friends. Yes, you read that right! Surely, the charges were dismissed once the young boy appeared in court? That would be no, and according to the boy’s lawyer is nothing less than “crazy”.

However, the officials who proceeded with the criminal petition in juvenile court may be getting their comeuppance. The young boy’s parents have filed a federal civil rights law suit against district attorney Lisa Riniker, and a Grant County sherrif and social worker.

The original allegation was that the boy had put his finger in the girl’s anus, however, the girl now says that her young friend touched the outside of her buttocks.

So what’s really going on here? According to the boy’s parents the criminal investigation has been motivated by politics. The boy’s father is a well-known politician in Grant County and the boy’s aunt is a regional social services supervisor.

It is also alleged that prosecutor Lisa Riniker has tried to persuade the child’s parents to resolve the matter by way of a consent order or face the prospects of a legal action to remove their son from his home.

The parents rightfully refused to allow their son to be interviewed by the prosecutor which has led to the suggestion that the child’s parents are “witness tampering” and should be charged with that offence as well.

Can you say “out of control”? This is utterly insane. Since when are five and six-year-old children mature enough to understand the ramifications of benign exploration of their bodies?

Will somebody please inject some common sense into this ludicrous persecution, I mean prosecution.

  1. I read this while reading an article completely unrelated. (The MegaUpload Saga) Wow. Think of all the children who’d be arrested since the 60s for engaging in sexually-related activities.
