    What is going on here? Rape or experimentation?

    10 is pretty old to be pawing a five yr. old. She was probably really scared, there is some equity in power there. He needs to know he can't just do stuff like this.

    If they were closer in age I would say it's just prolly kids experimenting but I suspect that's not the case here.

    Chances are that the kid has been abused himself or has watched some pervy shit going on at home. I imagine this family will get some intensive intervention.

    He may have to register as a sex offender.

    He probably watched assmasters #4 on his dads iMac and wondered what it felt like.

    I agree that it's likely but some 10 year olds are malicious on their own. The story is way too vague though to come to any kind of reasonable conclusion.

    If it turns out that he did sexually assault her then that's probably not a bad thing.

    I agree Art. However this story reminded me of a disturbing case we had back when I was in social services.

    An 11 year old molested his 4 year old step sister and when the step mom (mother of the baby) was asked why she thought it happened she said "She flirts with him and runs around the house naked". She blamed the baby.

    As it turns out, the father was a fisherman who used to bring his crew to the home to have their way with his wife after a long while at sea.

    The 11 year old thought that's what girls were for.

    How do you fix that? This was "normal" for these fucked up people.

    I got no idea how to "fix" that but I'm fine with someone like that getting branded as a sex offender. In my mind how he or she got to that point matters in therapy or whatever but it doesn't matter one bit when it comes to the giving the sex offender brand ... they are still a danger and need to be treated as such.

    Prepubescent children exploiting other prepubescent children.

    Our society used to call this rather common event "Playing Doctor".

    Now it's considered a serious problem.

    We do not KNOW what this kid really did, do we?

    No and we probably won't. But the fact that he's been charged with a crime leads me to believe that this was more than playing doctor. Most incest cases are handled by DYFS; not the police.
