Justice is being served FINALLY!!!
You guys remember back on Thanksgiving when the catastrophic news hit every media outlet about an 11 year old girl being gang raped in an abondoned mobile home in Cleveland , Texas. Today the young girl gets her justice. At least 18 men have been officially charged in the connection of the hidious hate crime. The suspects ages reange from 14 years of age to 27.Â The cellular devices of the suspectsÂ were all taken into evidence after videos surfaced of the alleged incident hit schools. The 11 year old girl’s friend got whind of the sexual act and immediatley had it reported to the official on December 1st.
It is alleged that the victim was invited to join one of the suspects in a mobile home, before other men were invited in, including a relative of the man who owned the mobile home. The sixth-grade victim has since been withdrawn from school.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 victimâ€™s mother said she had been advised to move from the area due to the pressure of the trial. Sherry Fletcher, whose 20-year-old son Devo Shaun Green is among those charged, spoke to the network about her sonâ€™s arrest.
She said: â€˜It just seems like a dream. â€˜I just hope everything comes out well, because some of these kids are innocent.â€™ 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 Clevelandâ€™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 arrested next.
Police have stressed that the investigation is ongoing and have not ruled out further breakthroughs and more arrests before the case comes to trial. Some of those charged are from local Cleveland high school, while all 18 are understood to be from the town.
