MILWAUKEE -- An 11-year-old boy was charged yesterday with sexually assaulting a 76-year-old neighborhood woman in her home as three of his friends watched.Police said that for a week before the attack, the boys had been "terrorizing" the woman in her house, repeatedly breaking in and taking cash and other items.The woman, who lives alone, told police she was taking a sponge bath in the kitchen Friday when the 11-year-old walked in, demanded money and ordered her to take off her clothes and go into the bedroom, court papers said. The boy's brother, a 13-year-old who was among the three other boys charged, said he heard the woman say: "I'm just an old, half-crippled lady, I'm not going."The woman said the 11-year-old put on a condom and tried to rape her, followed by a second boy, court papers said.The 11-year-old was charged in juvenile court with sexual assault and being a party to burglary and criminal trespassing. The other boys - ages 11, 12 and 13 - were charged with being a party to burglary and criminal trespassing.Outside court, the mother of the 11-year-old facing the less serious charges said, "I'm very hurt because my son was raised as a good boy." She said police abused the boys to obtain confessions.

That is downright frikkin' sick. Those kids were raised to be 'good boys'?!! Um... I think even the talented Mr. Ripley would know just how WRONG that was. What is this world coming to?!
