Rape has we know it is mostly acquainted to men molesting men and the rate of men molesting women sexually is more than vice versa. It is accepted to be an act of indulging the opposite sex against their will in sexual acts or attempts.
The recent rise in rape cases has risen generally across strata, from older men, sexually molesting women to men and women suffering the sad ordeal of sexual harassment.
In a report according to The Pointer News a female teacher had sexually abused a 14-year-old at least 62 times threatening to hurt him if he tells anyone, police said.
Rochelle Cressman, 32, reportedly began having sex with the boy in September 2018 and sexually abused him twice a week until April – a total of at least 62 encounters, after which boy’s mother discovered the intimate relationship and told authorities.
Cressman, who taught health and physical education at Titusville Middle School, was charged Wednesday with ten counts each of statutory sexual assault and involuntary deviant sexual intercourse with a person less than 16-years-old. She was also charged with making terroristic threats to the boy.
She reportedly told him not ‘to not tell anyone of the relationship and (she) threatened to harm herself and him if anyone were to find out,’ police said, according to the Times Observer. Cressman also faces 42 counts of indecent assault.
In another rather disastrous happenings, BBC news reports an erupted volatile protest still on going in India against the rape of a young girl.
Huge protests have continued for the third day in Indian-administered Kashmir with people demanding the death penalty for a man who allegedly raped a three-year-old girl.
“The accused had tried to flee, but we caught him,” the girl’s father told BBC Hindi. He said the man was a neighbour and the police had arrested him.
Thousands of people took to the streets on Monday, and dozens were left injured after police used teargas on crowds. There had been protests on Sunday too. “We want justice and stringent punishment,” the toddler’s father, Shair Ali Dar, said.
Schools and colleges were closed in the Bandipore region as protests continued on Tuesday. The Kashmir valley also came to a halt on Monday, with protesters clashing with police and paramilitary forces at several places, and schools and businesses shut across the region.
Police told local media that the accused had lured the child into a nearby school and raped her there last week.
“She was screaming for her mother,” Mr Dar said. “We rushed to the school and found her bleeding in the bathroom.” The incident has spurred widespread outrage as rape of minors is relatively rare in the Kashmir region.
Latest government crime figures show that two rape cases involving girls under the age of six were reported in 2016. Overall, 21 cases of rape against minors were registered in the state that year.
Protests rocked Kashmir last year over the rape and murder of an eight-year-old Muslim girl in Kathua district. Soon after the incident came to light, the federal government introduced the death penalty for those convicted of raping minors under the age of 12.
