A 10-year-old Houston girl has been jailed on charges that she raped a 4-year-old boy in an apartment complex courtyard.
The child was arrested last week for the incident, which allegedly took place in April, KHOU reported. She was taken to a juvenile justice complex, where, her mother told the station, “Just to see her looking through those bars screaming for me to get her out was a nightmare.”
The names of neither the girl nor her mother have been released.
The girl was held for four days without a lawyer before Quanell X, leader of the New Black Panther Party in Houston, stepped in as her defense attorney.
