Girl, 11, may have performed sex acts

By Maureen Boyle, Enterprise staff writer
BROCKTON — Police are investigating allegations that an 11-year-old girl performed a sex act on three boys, with one as young as 9, as the children played video games.

The allegations surfaced this week after a 9-year-old boy told his parents that the girl performed a sex act on him and two friends in a bedroom at the 9-year-old's home, prompting a call to police Monday. The boy's parents were home in a different room at the time.

"This is unusual, but unfortunately it is becoming more prevalent," Lt. William Conlon, chief of detectives, said of pre-teen sexual activity. "It is starting younger and younger."

Conlon said some children are becoming sexually active and parents need to keep a close watch on where they are, as well as what they are doing, even when at home.

Studies are backing up that concern.

One study by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy found that 18 to 19 percent of youths have had sexual intercourse at age 14 or younger.

Another study, commissioned by NBC News and People magazine, found 77 percent of teens surveyed considered oral sex "sex" but 43 percent did not consider oral sex "as big a deal" as intercourse.

However, when children as young as 9 and 11 are performing sex acts red flags should be raised, said Elizabeth Englander, a Bridgewater State College psychologist and author of "Understanding Violence."

"I would not accept the argument that they saw it on television," she said. "If my child is thinking about specific sex acts, perhaps the child has been shown pornography or has been sexually abused."

In the most recent case, police are continuing to interview people and gather information in the investigation.

The 9-year-old told his parents, and later police, that the incident occurred Sunday after the children watched a movie, "Hide and Seek," a 2005 horror film rated R for "frightening sequences and violence," according to the Internet Movie Database.

Then they went to an upstairs bedroom to play a baseball video game.

The 9-year-old told police the others went upstairs first and when he joined them the girl was already performing oral sex on one of the boys.

He said he went into the room and played video games with the other child.

The girl then performed the sex act on a 13-year-old boy and on the 9-year-old. He told police he did not want to participate but was pressured to.

The age of the third boy was believed to be around the same as the others. Police were trying to identify him.

The girl, interviewed at her home with her mother, told police the group watched a movie, went upstairs to play video games and the boys forced her to perform the sex acts, Conlon said.

The 13-year-old boy, when interviewed by police, also said they watched a movie and went to play video games, but insisted the girl "made them do it" and there was no coercion, Conlon said.

*Sigh* It's just sad. I can't belive the youth of today. Every where you go its out there. Just driving down the street and you can see middle school girls walking on the sidwalk dressed (hardly dressed) skimpy. During my childhood I never saw or heard of these things.

I used to assist teaching a life skills class that our PD puts on at the middle school, and I could hear kids taling about boy friends and girl friends in the hallway. It's sort of scares me that kids are doing and thinking of these things at such a young age.

Kids are curious and are easily pressured by peers. Today's trends, media, and so called role models dont help the situation much either. Parents need to take more of a stance on this and talk to kids before its to late.

When I was in middle school I knew at least 5 people (aged 13-14) who had already had sex...I know a bunch of other kids talked about oral...but I couldn't guess at numbers.

Out of all my friends (and some of my cousins) I was the only one who wasn't under 16 when I lost my virginity...

The problem with this, besides the ages, is the number. This little girl went down on 3 boys...granted at their age I'm sure they have no STD's...but the older she gets, she feels this is normal and then continues...makes you wonder if she would ever ask a guy if he's "clean"...It's scary and sick.

It all goes back to parents not being parents anymore but "friends"...screw that, my kids aren't leaving the house until their 25.

:shock: WOW 11!!!! Not Good!!!! Where are there parents? I like the game they are playing now too, "oh he said she said" it just goes to show how immature they are and not ready for things like this. So not only do these 12, 13, 14 year old girls dress skimpy they are going to just live up to that reputation. No offense to anyone whos daughter dresses like that but if I was a parent I would watch my kids real closley. Wouldn't wanna be the parent that had to take my 13 YO to the docs to get a shot for an STD!!!!

I saw an interview with the mother of the 11 yo girl. Ofcourse she was shifting all the blame to the boys saying her daughter was "pressured" and making it out like she did not have a shred of responsibility. Someones been watching the Milton Academy stories a little too much I think.
