Six year old boy accused of sexual assault against another boy

A regular game of tag between best friends lead to an alleged sexual assault / sexual battery at a Hercules, CA elementary school. Experts said such incidents are not isolated, but rather part of an emerging national trend. A similar case caused a sensation in Boston last fall when a 7-year-old faced sexual harassment charges for kicking another boy his age in the groin during a fight. Due to heightened concerns over bullying in recent years – spurred by a public awareness campaign following several child suicides – school administrators now feel pressure to act boldly in cases where students might face harassment.
