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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.”

    Yes, that would be the humane thing to do.

  6. 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.

    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!

    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 ….

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