A 6-year-old Grant County boy has been accused of first-degree sexual assault after playing “doctor” with two 5-year-old friends. Now, a federal lawsuit has been filed against the prosecutor, who attorneys said is trying to force the boy to admit guilt.
[…]
Attorneys for the parents of the 6-year-old, who is being referred to as “D,” said that [prosecuting DA Lisa] Riniker has gone too far by bringing a felony sex charge against a first-grader for touching a 5-year-old girl inappropriately while playing doctor last fall.
[…]
In justification for the charge, Riniker is quoted in the lawsuit saying “the Legislature could have put an age restriction in the statute … the legislature did no such thing.” The lawsuit also alleges the charges were brought because the 5-year-old is the daughter of a high-ranking official in Grant County.

Another article said the boy, if found guilty, would be put on the sex offender list when he turns 18.

What about all the baby boys touching their mother’s breasts? Clearly, they should be prosecuted. Ignorance of the law (or how to read or talk) is no excuse!

    What a dumb f__. Clearly the result of a conservative education.

      Who says this dingbat is a conservative? Both ends have a fringe that thinks that this individual is doing her job correctly.

      Prosecutors from the right or left have a nasty habit of being self-serving [$%^*#%]s that think nothing of destroying someone, even vulnerable children in an effort to make others believe that they are protecting the people from an unseen evil.

      This validates the thesis of the Power of Nightmares by Adam Curtis to the letter.

          This is an interesting find. However, it has not been updated since 2004 and only one item is currently posted to it. All of the six comments are spam.

      Since she signed a petition to have george w. prosecuted for murder I think she may be leaning a bit to the left.

  3. LibertyLover says:

    Stupid broad. Played doctor then and I still play doctor (you should see my wife’s nursing outfit. Hubba Hubba!).

    Now, as a dad of a couple of daughters, if I had ever caught the next door neighbor boy playing doctor with them, I would have raised Holy Hell with his parents but I wouldn’t have called the cops.

    Nobody takes responsibility for themselves anymore. Sad.

  4. Animby says:

    You can not legislate normality. Sexual exploration in children is – normal. Although I am not a psychiatrist, I don’t believe a 6 year-old boy is emotionally capable of being a sexual predator. I suspect the parents will win this legal action and I hope they get every penny of the 12 million bucks they seek.

    N.B. I have an M.D. after my name and I STILL like to play doctor with a willing lady. And I am definitely capable of being a sexual predator. Maybe that’s why the young lady calls me “Tiger”! Or it might just be because I paw her all the time.

    Interesting that a prosecutor would project “adult”-style guilt onto a child. Since when does a five year old know anything? They have to be taught—everything. They do dumb things & need to be corrected—every time.

    I suspect the power of Jeebus at work here. The prosecutor’s Jeebus definitely does NOT approve of five-year-olds exploring one other. Her Jeebus is a projection too, since the “real” Jeebus simply ain’t here to weigh in on the matter.

    What’s the big horror if a boy finds out what a naked girl looks like? Maybe it was time for him to see. The touching was naughty but can’t we discourage that without making too big a deal out of it? He’s a little kid & he’s found out enough for now. He doesn’t need to know all the details about big-kid sex yet. Leave him be.

    But this kid will be ruined one way or another. The normal male inclination towards pussy will be felt by him as perverted & the guilt will never go away. Jeebus gives me a sad.

    Not a Fed — elected District Attorney for Grant County, Wisconsin.

    From http://www.co.grant.wi.gov/localgov_departments_details.asp?deptid=412&locid=147
    (Sorry, link doesn’t work without the ‘www’.)

    “The District Attorney must prosecute crimes committee in the County; represent the County in all courts; secures advice about interpretation of laws from the Attorney General’s Office and initiates inquiries or investigations into the health, safety, morals, and welfare of the County.” [Emphasis added.]

  12. Cristina Hopper-Fischer says:

    It’s people like this prosecutor who we can blame for all of the rapists, robbers, murderers, etc. who are walking the streets today – because instead of working on keeping THOSE creeps in prison and away from us…they are working to punish kids for basically doing something very innocent, natural…and human! This woman should be forced to join the rest of America in the UNEMPLOYMENT LINE!

  13. deowll says:

    Since I have found nothing that tells me this DA’s political views I’d suggest that those who wish to ascribe them to one party or the other are guilty of slander. That is not a virtue.

    I can only concur that anyone who charges a prepuberty child this age with a sexual crime needs to be removed from office. The sick sex is between their ears.

      deowill,
      “Since I have found nothing that tells me this DA’s political views I’d suggest that those who wish to ascribe them to one party or the other are guilty of slander.”

      She ran for DA as a Republican. Obviously, she has some serious problems with judgement. Hopefully, the voters who elected her will correct their mistake by the next election.

    This reminds me of a case of a kid with asperburger’s syndrome well documented here in Winnipeg where he “lured a 9 year girl” on the internet
    He never touched her – the father went through the messenger logs
    The asperburger kid is on a sex offender list for 25 years and has house arrest

    Want to boost your career as a prosecutor and get in good with the right circles, go after a 5 year playing doctor. Easy mark.

  17. jbenson2 says:

    Media comparison (based on location):

    Madison, Wisconsin: A 6-year-old boy is being prosecuted by Federal authorities for touching a 5-year-old girl’s butt while playing doctor.

    San Francisco, California: A 6-year-old boy is being celebrated by local authorities for touching a 5-year-old boy’s butt while playing doctor.

      It’s only poor lost souls like Dullas, who needs to reinforce his choices on a minute by minute basis, the ones capable of playin’ “my party’s good, their’s is bad” on things like this to feel better.

      Otherwise, they might see who they really are and go into a deep depression phase.

      • Dallas says:

        Meh. As usual, you can”t dispute the facts.

        BTW, I went to that 6 yr old touches 5 yr old celebration and after party in San Francisco and it was fantastic.

    • Cap'nKangaroo says:

      The boy IS NOT being prosecuted by Federal authorities. The boy is being prosecuted by the local Grant county, WI prosecutor.

      The parents have filed a Federal lawsuit against the prosecutor over the boy’s prosecution.

  18. Animby says:

    Deowll : I did a little googling and found evidence she IS a Republican. Though I don’t really see what that has to do with it. Demos do stupid things every day, too. http://highbeam.com/doc/1P2-11145412.html Is Eric Holder any less of a douche with his refusal to prosecute the Panthers for voter intimidation? For allowing the Fast & Furious gun running scheme? And a dozen other legal peccadilloes. Last I heard he was still a Democrat.

    But, in any case, let me compound the slander (or is it libel?) : I think she’s jealous.

  19. #25- bobbo, OCCUPY DVORAK: what if "we-all" number our own posts and post seriatim ourselves? says:

    “He (the boy) says he didn’t do it, and the little girl says he didn’t do it. The little girl says he touched the back of one of her buttocks,” Cooper said. /// I don’t even know where the back of a buttock is. I shoulda played more doctor I suppose. Hey!!!!—taking Animby’s libelous lead ((is that for the alliteration or the definition that libel is any slander in writing?)) I could still learn?

    Most 5 year old girls are more socially advanced/curious than most 6 year old boys. Leaving room for lots of exceptions.

    Our society is so comfortable with natural healthy sexuality. That and how readily we want to pander to people in politically advantageous positions. So, the question remaining, given we know why the prosecutor acted, is why did the little girl’s parents want this action brought?

    In such circumstances, I would simply have counseled closer adult supervision? But hey……..I’d order the parents into sex counseling at the same time.

  20. Peppeddu says:

    My $0.02

    She’s either trying to make a name for herself with something controversial, or she has had a bad experience playing doctor when she was a little girl

    Obviously this has nothing to do with breaking the law, as any judge would dismiss this case because of the Statutory Interpretation of the Law’s principle.

  21. Egon Ruuda says:

    buhuuuu buhuuuuu!!! Everyone is clamoring for their kids sexuality. KIDS BEFORE PUBERTY HAS NO SEXUALITY!!!!!.. That this even occured is a travesty of justice.

    This can not be true the bullshit-o-meter is freaking out on me.

  22. Joshua says:

    this is beyond ludicrous first off just because your a high ranking member in society doesn’t mean you can bend laws to mean what you what them to second kids of that age can Not fathom what it means to have sexuality Sex and all things related to sex doesn’t exist in their world yet so they are doing no harm. third you want to charge him with sexual assault but not put him on the registry until he is 18 from 6 skip until 18 that right their tells me your a idiot and you think charging a child is wrong I think you have a problem with his family and are trying to talk it out on the kid someone who is helpless… even in the bible children get a go to heaven free pass because CHILDREN ARE PURE AND INNOCENT. I think you should be stoned out of court and the D.A. trying this case should be brought before the board and have her certification questioned she should never be trusted again to try a sexual assault case because she can’t tell what is and isn’t in the eyes of the law

  23. NewFormatSux says:

    Kids of that age know what they are doing too, even if they haven’t hit puberty. They’ve learned enough to fool around, encouraged by sites like this one and things on television, that liberals say it is foolish to not let them watch.

  24. Skeptic > post # 27,670 says:

    Ask yourself what Jesus would do.

    King James Bible, 2011 ed.:
    Samuel 1:15:3

    “Now go and strike Riniker and her family, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.”

  25. Skeptic > post # 27,671 says:

    Yes, that would be the humane thing to do.

  26. Cap'nKangaroo says:

    “Cooper and attorney David Sigale filed the federal suit last week, alleging that Riniker wants D to sign a consent decree admitting some level of guilt.”

    How can a lawyer (I am assuming she has a law degree and passed the WI bar) think a six year old capable of even understanding what a consent decree is.

    The parents were to talk with the local TV station about the lawsuit but DA Riniker obtained a gag order barring the parents from discussing it.

  27. Anonymous says:

    I think if you look hard enough that the DA was a victim of something and is still looking for revenge. 5-year old or not, she obviously wants blood!

    This is not only outrageous – it’s SICK!

  28. JimD says:

    Insanity must lead to a WITCH HUNT !!! And it’s only beginning !!! Give a prosecutor a Law, and he or she will try to fit to as many cases as they can, come hell or high water, and because of their “immunity” will NEVER ADMIT AN ERROR !!! Better to give kids real sex education than try to hide the facts of life and pretend that kids are pure as the driven snow, but that will never happen with Thumpers controlling the agenda ….

  29. GetSmart says:

    I’d talk to the media, fuck that idiot judge and his gag order.
