Posted October 02, 2018 12:24:56 A girl in a Florida community was sentenced to five years in prison for gropING a 4- and 5-year old girl at a party.
A judge in Jacksonville said the victim was a virgin and “could not have possibly known” what she was doing.
She was also ordered to pay $500 in restitution.
She did not plead guilty to the crime.
The victim told investigators she was in her room when a group of about eight people approached her and began groping her breasts, neck and back.
The girl was wearing a white bra, shorts and panties.
The judge noted that the victim’s testimony had not been corroborated by witnesses.
The prosecutor said that the defendant’s lawyer “tried to make a case that this was a case of someone taking advantage of a vulnerable little girl who is not able to speak, that she is an immature child.”
In February, a judge sentenced a man to five months in prison after he was convicted of groping a 4 year old girl in the backseat of a car.
