Parents of a five-year-old girl are pressing charges for first-degree sexual assault against a 6-year-old boy. The accusation? Playing doctor with their daughter. Although too young to be prosecuted, the boy could be listed on the permanent sex offender registry when he turns 18. This is crazy! Am I the only one that find this crazy! what kind of doctor did these parents experience growing up?
The boyâ€™s parents are suing Grant County District Attorney, Lisa Riniker, a social worker and a former Sheriffâ€™s Office investigator. The plaintiffs, who are listed on the complaint as Jennifer and Kurtis B., tried to get Riniker to drop the charges. She replied, â€The legislature could have put an age restriction in the statute if it wanted to. The legislature did no such thing.â€ They are asking $12 million in damages. The petition for protection or services states that the girlâ€™s mother found her daughter â€œwith her skirt and underpants around her ankles,â€ and the boy allegedly penetrating her. The girl said they were playing â€œbutt doctorâ€ and said the boy only touched the outside of her body. The girl is listed in the complaint as the â€œdaughter of a well-known political figure in Grant County.â€ Her brother was allegedly involved in the â€˜doctorâ€™ game as well. He is not being charged. The social worker, Jan Moravits, is the girlâ€™s aunt.
