Five Arrested In 7-Year-Old’s Gang Rape
April 4, 2010
New Jersey (ChattahBox) – Two men and three teenage boys have been arrested in the case of a 15-year-old who sold her 7-year-old sister for sex in a Trenton high rise.
The gang rape of the unnamed little girl sent shock through the community and sparked an outrage that was echoed in the police.
Officers conducted a raid on the building, which had been planned before, and made 27 arrests. But they had not yet gotten the perpetrators of this horrible crime.
Now, a major crack in the case has led to the arrests of 20-year-old Gregory Joseph Leary – who was originally arrested for having sex with the 15-year-old stepsister), and 19-year-old Timear Lewis.
A 13, 14, and 17-year-old have also been arrested, but cannot be named because of their age.
“We’re not finished because everyone who is responsible is still not arrested,” Mayor Doug Palmer said.
“The police will not rest until we get every individual who was involved in this.”
It is believed that there are at least two other people involved in the rapes.
