Default Can this kid get in trouble for sexual abuse?

So for my College Writing course, we were given a situation and have to write about it. I hate mine, it is disturbing. A 10 year old touches his 3 year old sister innapropriately. When he is 12, he forces his sister to touch him twice. He is caught by the parents. What happens? He never does it again and feels guilty. Years later he has moved on. If his sister came out and told police this, or exaggerated the story, could he get in trouble?

What type of liberal pinko prof do you have. For the life of me, I can not figure why english profs bring up shit like this. You have to write an essay with a liberal bent to it. Say the sister should get counseling and self defense training to stop guys from doing that.

I suspect this is a real life situation involving yourself. I believe you have moved on and regret doing it. If you think your sister remembers the incidents you could talk to her and apologize. Then it's behind you and you can forget about it.

Would a 10 year old actually know that this is wrong?
Parents find out and tell him that it is wrong and he never does it again. End of story.

Some 10 year olds will know its wrong and others wont. Simply that they hide it is an indication that they know subconsciously at least, but that does not mean that they understand the implications and possible impacts of such behavior.

Many many children participate in such activity. It is normal. You should not judge someone bad for things they did as a child.

An apology for things done as a child may be in order, especially if you think it caused an impact. An apology shows that one understands and respects at this point in time the sovereignty and personal integrity of the other person and that it will we honored.

Don't forget the incident when the child was 12 years old, not that the two years is much of a difference. Anyways, thanks for the responses!
