A Gallup Avenue boy denied sexually molesting an 8-year-old Huron boy during a hearing Wednesday in Huron County Juvenile Court.

The 15-year-old Norwalk suspect was charged with three counts of rape, first-degree felonies if committed by an adult, in connection with two incidents Saturday and one Sunday.

"These are terrible tragedies. It sounds pretty bad," county prosecutor Russell Leffler said.

A rape exam was performed on the boy Sunday night after he was brought to Fisher-Titus Medical Center, police said.

Assistant prosecutor Jennifer DeLand filed the rape complaints Wednesday morning after police arrested the suspect the previous day at Norwalk High School.

"He has no previous record with us," court administrator Chris Mushett added.

During Wednesday's detention hearing, Judge Timothy Cardwell ordered the teen to remain in custody at the Sandusky County Juvenile Detention Center until the court scheduled another hearing.

Chief probation officer Phil Charville made the recommendation "based on the seriousness of the charges" and until police and/or social workers could interview family members.

Charville and defense attorney John Allton did not elaborate on why authorities needed to interview the suspect's relatives.

The boy, if found guilty, could be sentenced to the Department of Youth Services from one year up to his 21st birthday. He also could be required to annually register his address as a sex offender with the Huron County Sheriff's Office, Cardwell said.

Denial of Justice?

Is hostility toward suspected pedophiles so severe that prosecutors exhibit excessive zeal and defense attorneys don't bother to defend their client? Will juries convict regardless of inconclusive evidence? For persons accused of sex offenses, is it guilty unless proven innocent beyond a reasonable doubt? If so, there is a systematic denial of justice for those charged.

No Place to Stand, No Place to Sit

And when they get out of prison, if they ever do, where can they live?

Do we want to keep pedophiles in prison for life? Quotes from ChildRight Worldwide - The Victim Child:

"Parker Rossman, an expert in homosexual paedophilia, estimates the number of active gay-paedophiles at more than half a million all over the world. Apparently one out of eight men sometimes gets sexually excited about young boys."

"According to a study by Briere and Runtz in the USA, of the 193 male students questioned, 21% have been sexually aroused by young children once or twice. 9% of the students said to have fantasies about sex with children sometimes, and 7% indicated to be interested in sex with children if there would be no risk of being arrested."

If you try to put all these folks in jail on top of all those imprisoned for other reasons, we're going to have a society composed of only two groups, prisoners and prison guards.

Pedophile Crackdown

Children to be banned from going outside. Parents warned not to let children play together out of sight.

Cloaks and Veils

Because we seem to be terribly concerned that some men are sexually aroused by children, perhaps we should dress all the kids in black cloaks and veils until the age of eighteen.
