Man Rapes 4-Year-Old, Judge's Sentencing Shocks The Courtroom

There is outrage in Germany after a 22-year-old was given only two years and four months in jail for sexually abusing a 4-year-old boy. Jama B was tried for luring a little boy into a bathroom and assaulting him. Jama B. boasted about being a famous singer in Afghanistan and said there was no proof of the crime in court.

"The incredible verdict of the prosecutor and the court," stormed the popular Bild am Sonntag newspaper. "This is the verdict that shames you all."

Activists said that Jama B. should have been charged with rape.

Sohrab S., 29, was reported to have stood guard outside the bathroom during the attack, however, the charges couldn’t be proved in court. The 4-year-old, who is from Iraq, is said to have returned to his father without his pants.

"Rape charges are brought only if it was enforced with violence or the threat of violence. We do not assume this was the case. Therefore he was indicted on a charge of serious sexual abuse. The penalty doesn't matter - it is between two and 15 years in jail for rape or for serious sexual abuse."

Jama B. and the child are both migrants who were living in the same asylum home. The family has since moved from the home. Jama B. is scheduled to be deported after he serves his sentence. Activists say more needs to be done to protect migrant women and children living in German asylums.
