A 14-year-old boy named Harvin is supposed to be tried for the rape and murder of an 81-year-old woman in Maryland.
The victim was immediately treated to hospital, but to no avail.
A police spokesman indicated that the child would be tried as an adult, and he was surprised that he had committed this great crime, which was a great shock to the child’s family and the judiciary.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled to look into the charges against Harvin.
A prison sentence was imposed on an elderly woman who raped and tortured his seven daughters and sister for a period of 23 years
The Central Criminal Court in Ireland has sentenced a 75-year-old person to twenty years in prison for a number of rape and repeated sexual assaults on his seven daughters and younger sister.
Prosecutors accused James O’Reilly of subjecting teenage girls to horrific sexual assaults over a 23-year period.
The lawsuit papers also indicated that O’Reilly was also accused of assaulting his eight victims with beating and subjecting them to starvation and humiliation.
Judge O’Reilly described O’Reilly as “appalling,” as one of O’Reilly’s daughters gave birth to a child with him after he raped her.
The victims, who gave up their right to anonymity, confirmed that they had been humiliated and starved.
The accused continued to deny the charges against him, and did not show any remorse after the verdict against him was pronounced.
The judge said that were it not for O’Reilly’s age, he would have been sentenced to life in prison. Instead, he was sentenced to twenty years in prison.
The Irish judge also praised the victims’ “courage, honor and resilience”, with a quick reference to their “lightness”.
The judge indicated that, in sentencing O’Reilly, he took into account the abuse of his standing among the victims and the period during which the attacks continued, and the “immeasurable pain and damage he caused to his victims.”
After the verdict was pronounced, the victims asked why the authorities did not intervene to protect them early, and whether the reason for their lack of protection by the authorities was that they belonged to a minority of Irish nomads.
In statements to court after the verdict was pronounced among her six sisters, Helen, O’Reilly’s eldest daughter, urged other victims of sexual assaults to resist and “move forward” toward accountability for the perpetrators.
“I have been sexually assaulted since I was four years old, so I would say that all women regardless of the women of nomadic families whose rights were violated – they have to raise their voice,” Helen said.
“Don’t be afraid, as we did. We did not know who to turn to or where to go. We had no education, we did not get anything.”
Now I’m not afraid. He will be punished for years.
She asserted that O’Reilly could have been imprisoned a long time ago if these girls had the “strength and courage” to give up silence years ago.
She indicated that what they had done made them stronger than they had been before.
