[SAD NEWS] : 10-Year-Old Texas Girl Accused Of Raping 4-Year-Old Boy
HOUSTON -- The mother of a 10-year-old girl accused of raping a 4-year-old boy in their apartment complex said police have got it all wrong.

“She was just being a child having fun and playing,” the woman said. “She didn’t know she was doing anything wrong.”

According to the mom, the girl has been charged with raping the boy in the courtyard of the complex.


Houston Police confirmed an incident was reported back in April. A juvenile sex crimes investigator was assigned to the case, and an arrest was made late last week.

“Me and my mom were crying and then she took me to the police car,” said the little girl. “I didn’t want to get in.”

“Just to see her looking through those bars screaming for me to get her out was a nightmare,” added the mom.

Eventually the little girl was transported to the downtown juvenile justice complex, where she was fingerprinted, issued a standard jump suit and locked up in a cell.

“And that was my first time being there and I was scared. I thought something was going to happen to me,” said the little girl.

She spent four days in lockup before being released. Still without an attorney, activist Quanell X has stepped in to defend her.

“This was nothing more than inappropriate horseplay,” Quanell X said. “That’s what this was. That’s gone a little bit too far and criminalizing a 10-year-old child.”

But exactly what happened that day remains unclear. If convicted, the girl could have to register as a sex offender, and her mother admits it’s possible her daughter did commit a crime.

“I’m not saying that she didn’t. I’m not saying she did, but she’s still a child.”
