Seven boys, all of whom are under the age of 14, have been accused of gang-raping an eight-year-old girl in an abandoned house in St. Paul, Minnesota. Four of the boys are under age 10, and thus cannot face criminal prosecution under Minnesota state law. The remaining three boys, ages 10, 11, and 13, face charges of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. If found guilty, the boys could be confined to a juvenile corrections institution until age 19.
Police said that the girl's 9-year-old brother led the attack, in which four of the boys raped the girl, two others fondled her genitals, and another allegedly watched.
