6-Year-Old Boy Accused of Sexual Assault While Playing Tag At School

Hercules, California – An innocent brush of a leg during a game of tag landed one California boy with charges of sexual battery, a suspension from school and a mark on his permanent record.

A father claims that his son was charged with sexually battery by school officials at Lupine Hills Elementary after accidentally brushing up against another boy’s thigh or groin during a game of tag.  The young boy was first questioned for 2 hours by the school principal before he was made to confess and the charges were laid.

The father of the boy who requested to go only by the name of Oswin was forced to hire legal representation to have the charges dropped and removed by the school, but not before school officials tried to talk the father into accepting lesser charges.  Oswin’s son has since been removed from Lupine Hills Elementary and moved into a different school.

Parents at Lupine Hills Elementary were shocked to find out about the charges, with one parent telling CBS news that, “To me, I think it’s an overreaction,” said Marilyn Cheeks.

According to California law there is no legal precedent or ability to charge 6-year-olds with sexual assault.  District officials would confirm that an investigation into the matter had been conducted, and that there was no basis for the sexual batter charge but would not divulge specifics of the case.

  1. I THINK THAT THIS HAS GOTTEN TOTALLY OUR OF HAND AND THE VIEWS ARE REALLY CRAZY. IF BRUSHING UP AGAINST SOMEONE FOR THIS CRIME THEN WE’RE ALL GUILTY BECAUSE THIS HAPPENS EVERYWHERE YOU GO AND CAN BE CAUSED FROM BEING OVERCROWDED ANYWHERE. THIS LAW THIS SO CRAZY AND WHOEVER THOUGHT OF IT NEEDS TO SEE A DOCTOR!! THIS IS BAD FOR THE LITTLE BOY TO HAVE THIS ON HIS RECORD AND WHEN IT COMES TO HIM FINDING A JOB THEY WILL LOOK AT HIM AND SAY “NO” THIS NEED NOT BE ON HIS RECORD AND HE SHOULD HAVE TO HAD CHANGED SCHOOLS UNTIL ALL THE FACTS WERE IN AND THE PERSON WHO IS CAUSING THIS NEEDS TO HAVE ACTIONS BROUGHT AGAINST THEM ALSO. THE LAWS ALL OVER THE WORLD IS GETTING TOO OUT OF HAND BECAUSE THEY ARE ONLY THINKING ABOUT THE MONEY AND NOT THE PEOPLE. I HAVE LEARNED A LOT SINCE I’VE BEEN GOING TO SCHOOL IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE AND WILL BE FINISHED IN 2013.
