7-year-old Gang-raped at Least 7 Times

New Jersey officials announced on Saturday two adults and three juveniles were charged with gang-raping a 7-year-old after her 15-year-old stepsister sold her at a party.

The 15-year-old whose name has not been released went to a party on the 13th floor of the Rowan Towers, according to KDKA, and her younger sister tagged along.
The teen sold sex to men in the room and allowed them to touch the younger girl, which turned into sex by force.
Gregory Leary, 20, of Trenton, was arrested on Thursday, according to the NY Times, and charged with raping the teen.
Tiemear Lewis, 19, of Trenton, was also charged in the case, officials said.
The Mercer County prosecutor, Joseph Bocchini Jr., said his office will likely try at least one of the three juveniles charged, ages 17, 14 and 13, in adult court, according to the Times.
The 15-year-old is accused of having sex for money and accepting cash to let the men touch the 7-year-old; that touching led to the 7-year-old being raped at least seven times, according to KDKA.
Doug Palmer, the Mayor, said he met with the victim and her family on Thursday at his office to offer help and to make sure they were safely moved out of the neighborhood out of safety concerns.
Palmer said the 7-year-old told him "Everybody is staring at me. They know it's me," a quote pulled from the Times.
