Up to 28 men and boys 'filmed gang rape' of 11-year-old girl on their mobile phones

A defence prosecutor today claimed up to 28 men and boys may have been involved in the filmed gang rape of an 11-year-old girl.

At the moment only 18 suspects aged between 14 and 27 are accused of taking part in the rape last Thanksgiving in an abandoned mobile home in Cleveland, Texas.

Investigators confiscated mobile phones from some of the suspects, after it emerged videos of the alleged incident were circulated around schools, court documents showed.

Speaking to KPRC news, defence attorney James Evans said: 'I don't know the exact number of people involved, I've heard as many as 28 or more.'

Speaking to the news network, assistant police chief Darrel Broussard said the investigation into the incident is ongoing.

He said: 'There have been leads during our investigation that have alerted us to other possible persons of interest.

'The investigation is ongoing.'

Further details of the alleged incident emerged today after CNN obtained a copy of the search warrant affidavit.

According to the document, the alleged incident happened November 28 at two residences in Cleveland.

Police became aware of the alleged rape after the girl told a school district police chief about the incident on December 3.

Police then interviewed school employees who had heard of the incident, according to the documents.

Shockingly, one employee spoke with several students: 'Who had seen the cell phone videos or heard of the incident,' the affidavit said.

The alleged victim was then interviewed at a child advocacy centre, and said that one suspect called her, 'and asked if she wanted to ride around,' the warrant said.

Three of the suspects then picked her up and took her to one residence where a fourth suspect lived, the network reported.

The fourth suspect told her to disrobe, she said, adding that she would be beaten up if she did not comply,' the affidavit recorded.

The girl was then said to have engaged in sexual acts in the bedroom and bathroom of the house.

While in the bathroom, the girl said she heard one suspect calling and inviting other people to have sex with her.

After she left the bathroom, she saw four men she did not know, the affidavit said.

The party were however disturbed when the aunt of one of the suspects returned home.

The alleged victim and the men then, 'left the residence in haste through the rear window of the house,' the affidavit said.

The group then moved to an abandoned trailer where the sexual acts continued, the affidavit said.

Finally, the affidavit noted that the alleged victim, 'Stated that digital still images and digital video images of the sex acts were recorded by one or more individuals using cellular telephones.'

The sixth-grade victim has since been withdrawn from school.

She has apparently told investigators that up to 20 men were involved in the alleged rape.

The victim is thought to have been taken away from her mother and relatives and put into protective care for her own safety.

Speaking to the Houston Chronicle, the alleged victim's mother said she had been advised to move from the area due to the pressure of the trial.

It was also reported that she had received threatening phone calls to her house.

Sherry Fletcher, whose 20-year-old son Devo Shaun Green is among those charged, spoke to the network about her son's arrest.

She said: 'It just seems like a dream.

'I just hope everything comes out well, because some of these kids are innocent.'

The New York Times reported that residents in the 9,000 strong town said the alleged victim had been visiting friends in the trailer - known locally as the quarters - for months prior to the incident.

The paper added that they thought she wore make up and clothes more suitable for someone in their 20's.

Speaking to the paper, neighbour Mrs Harrison said: 'Where was her mother. What was her mother thinking.

'How can you have an 11-year-old child missing down in the quarters.'

On Friday, Cleveland police announced that four students in the school district had been arrested on charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child under 14.

Cleveland school authorities say those arrested included an 11th-grader, 10th-grader, ninth-grader and a middle school student.

The arrests include two players on Cleveland's state-ranked basketball team.

Due to the sheer number of arrests, the case has divided the community, with local people not sure who will be accused next.

Some of those charged are from local Cleveland high school, while all 18 are understood to be from the town.

All guilty!

"It's disturbing the whole basketball team. I think they lost on Wednesday"

So i guess basketball is a priority over gang-rape

Re: Up to 28 men and boys 'filmed gang rape' of 11-year-old girl on their mobile phon

Here is a bit from an article in today's local paper:


Supporters of the defendants, meanwhile, have contended the girl appeared much older than her years.

Community activist Quanell X even went so far as to show reporters a scantily clad photo of her posted on Facebook.

Daphne Straughter, the grandmother of one the suspects who attended Quanell's rally on Thursday, said, "You can't tell she's a girl. What are these boys supposed to do, ask for an ID?"



Fucking pathetic. I guess they should feel free to rape her since she appeared to be of age. No wonder they turned out to be pieces of shit, with their grandparents and our local community activist/self-promoter/media whore trying to justify their actions.

The comments from some of the folks in this city are about as disturbing as the rape itself. I mean, a rally? Get real people.

it seems like some of the perpetrators should have known the age of the girl, considering that she went to the quarters or whatever for months before that.

and, let's say the girl was 18, i don't see how it makes it right to rape her? i don't know of any woman who would willingly have sex with 20 guys at a time who isn't a porn star, and even then...

Re: Up to 28 men and boys 'filmed gang rape' of 11-year-old girl on their mobile phon

This was already mentioned in the Media Bias thread in the politics forum, oddly enough:

http://forum.dvdtalk.com/politics-wo...d-ptiii-6.html

Or not so oddly, considering quotes from the NY Times article:

Quote:
"...how could their young men have been drawn into such an act?"

"They said she dressed older than her age, wearing makeup and fashions more appropriate to a woman in her 20s."
The majority of the suspects were black and the victim was hispanic, apparently. Not surprisingly, this incident is causing more than a little racial tension locally.

So according to the grandmother it is ok to gang rape an adult then? Do I understand that right?

But to be fair... at least they didn't date a tranny.

So there's that going for them.

How long until we find out the victim was mhg83, just trolling for a little fun?

Quanell X? Seriously, what the fuck. I don't mean to come off racist since it's largely the African American community that does this, but why the fuck do people insist on giving their kids names that aren't real words? An in the interest of fairness, I know a white couple that named their kid Optimus, which, IMO is even worse.

Also, all the perps and the idiots defending them can fucking rot. I wonder if /b/ is doing anything to the supporters yet.

Best. Parents. Ever.

Btw, if/when these guys are convicted, they should all be taken out back and shot. You cease to be human if you do what they are accused of doing.

Almost sounds like that bit in the movie, "Last Exit to Brooklyn" when Tra-La-La pulled that train.

If anyone had thought to pay her, this would be a completely different set of charges.

OMFG. I know this woman. I know the mother of one of the suspects/rapists/whatever. She used to work at the HEB I worked at in Conroe.

Kids these days... always up to somethin'.

When I was growin' up we didn't have no cell phone to record our 28 man gang rapes. We had to draw that **** up with a #2 pencil, and you know that lead done broke itself off every time! EVERY TIME!

Re: Up to 28 men and boys 'filmed gang rape' of 11-year-old girl on their mobile phon

I can't believe that people are actually blaming the 11-year-old girl for this. So what if she went down there before or dressed older than she was? The fact is, she is still 11 and these people knew or should have known she was a little girl. But even if she wasn't 11, and was 18, it still sounds an awful lot like rape to me. It just disgusts me to see these comments from the suspects' families and other people in the community that the girl was somehow asking for it because of the way she dressed. Absolutely awful.
