11-Year-Old Boy Charged With Sexual Abuse

ROCK RAPIDS, Iowa -- An 11-year-old northwest Iowa boy has been charged with sexually abusing three children who range in age from 5 to 8 years old.
Lyon County Sheriff Blythe Bloemendaal said the boy is charged with six counts of second-degree sexual abuse, which is a class B felony.
He said the boy and the alleged victims knew each other, but he wouldn't say whether they're related.
Authorities have not released the boy's name.
It was not immediately clear Saturday whether the boy is in custody. The sheriff said he will probably be tried in juvenile court.

I do hope at least they give him a proper assessment and figure out if something happened to him. What he did is wrong, but if he was abused as well then they need to follow that trail to where it leads. That is my take.

He should be punished because not every victim turns around and abuses others. There are some who often work and try to protect others from their perp. However, the trail does need to be followed.

Lets see if he even did anything first, OK? Parents use their kids to steal and setup false situations for money all the time.

I find it surprising that an 11 year old can be charged with anything. In Canada, a "youth" must be at least 12 to be charged. And to state that he "probably" would be tried as a juvenile? The State needs to remember this is a child, not an adult.

Seeking justice should also include using reason to ascertain the facts of the case and any subsequent handing out of justice.

I feel for this child. If he was abused, and then abused others, and if he is a pawn in some sick adult game, just as much.

there's places in America where they'd fry an 8 year old if they could.

Don't get me wrong, I think they definitely need to remember he is a child and to be careful and evaluate what is going on.

I cannot imagine an 11 year old doing something like this. So sad. I hope they do a thorough investigation before making decisions that will affect that little boy for the rest of his life.

Just a few questions:

1. Who abused him? Who taught him to do those things?

2. Children do not have the same ability to contain themselves as do adults. The same things cannot be expected of a child as an adult.

3. Why can't judges and lawyers think straight about these things?
