Thirteen year old boys held down girl and gang-raped a 15 year old girl on Monday.

According to reports, the two boys, who the victim reportedly regarded as friends, pinned her down and sexually assaulted her in a home in Clarksville, Tennessee.

The two boys have kept their anonymity and will not have to register as sex offenders.

The victim and her parents have since spoken out about the assault after the two boys were given incredibly lenient sentences when they were found guilty of raping the teen.

According to Tennessee juvenile sentencing laws, one of the boys was ordered to serve only six months of probation.

The other boy was sentenced to spend six months in juvenile detention because he allegedly has a criminal past.

Neither of the boys will have to register as sex offenders because they are younger than 14, according to WZTV.

The girl and her family are now hoping state lawmakers will changed Tennessee juvenile sentencing statutes so future victims can get justice. ‘I don’t really know what I’m comfortable saying…I got raped,’ the girl said.

Neither the victim nor her parents were named to protect the girl’s identity.

The girl’s mother said she knew kids were often nasty to each other, but she never thought her daughter would be a victim of such a horrific crime.

She said: ‘I just always thought it would be, you know, kids being mean, teasing or fighting, but not rape.’ The family said they immediately went to the police to report the crime. ‘The only thing

 

I really recall the police saying to me was essentially begging me to let them handle it,’ the victim’s father said.

 

Hodges, a Tennessee state representative, said he is now pushing to change the Juvenile Reform Act, which set the guidelines for the boy’s light sentences.

 

Hodges said: ‘Obviously as a father, I was disgusted and as a citizen of that community I was disgusted.’ ‘You know rape is obviously a serious offense and whether you’re 13 or 30, you should know better,’ he continued, and added that the new legislation he is supporting would allow convicted rapists 13-years-old and younger to be charged as adults.
