Juvenile Rape in Turkey

Twenty six men were charged for having sex with a thirteen year old girl in Turkey. The Turkish Court made a ruling the thirteen year old girl had “willfully engaged in consensual sexual relations with the twenty six men.” The public in Turkey was outraged. This decision is truly outrageous.

The incident took place in 2002. Twenty six men were accused of having sex on multiple occasions with a thirteen year old girl. The men paid two adult women for the sexual liaisons during the period of seven months. The men were sentenced pursuant to Turkey’s lenient Penal Code regarding sex with underage juveniles. The country’s penal code was thereafter modified in 2005. The older Turkish Penal Code gave reduced sentences regarding sexual liasions between adults and children under the age of fifteen if the child consented. A women’s group spokesman, Pinar Iikkaracan in Turkey stated “in the new Turkish Penal Code there is no question of consent, that is incredibly important to us.” “In terms of girls and boys under fifteen it is very clear any violation of the body for sexual purposes is defined as sexual abuse in the new code. Which means that sexual assault or the violation of the body should have a higher sentence.”

Some of the twenty six men who had sex with the thirteen year old were acquitted, while others received jail sentences of one to four years imprisonment.

Sexual Abuse in The U.S.

In the United States young children are considered not capable of consenting to sexual liasons with adults. Sexual abuse cases are handled as child abuse and neglect proceedings in the Family Courts as well as in the Criminal Courts in the State of New York. These types of cases are usually aggressively enforced by procecutors in New York.

Violent Assault on Priest Related to Sexual Abuse

priests-150x150Approximately thirty-five years ago, William Lynch and his brother were sexually abused by a Jesuit priest. During the past thirty-five years, he has dealt with issues involving depression, nightmares and suicide. He had lived with anger and pain for more than three decades.

A Priest Rapes And Molests Five and Seven-year-olds

William was five-years-old and his brother was seven when they were raped and forced to have oral sex with each other by Father Lindner. Father Lindner, a Jesuit priest, forced them to do these sexual acts, then watched them for his own amusement.

Father Linder, now sixty-five years of age, has been accused by a dozen people of sexual abuse. Among those he abused were his sister, nieces and nephews.

Payment of $625,000 in Damages in 1998

In 1998, Mr. Lynch and his brother settled a lawsuit brought for sexual abuse against Father Lindner and the Jesuit Roman Catholic Order. They received a $625,000 settlement related to Father Lindner abusing them in 1975 during a weekend camping trip in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Father Lindner has also been named in two additional lawsuits involving sexual abuse. These cases involved in a $660 million dollar settlement struck between the Catholic Church and approximately 550 sexually-abused individuals in 2007.

Anger Boils Over

Mr. Lynch let his anger and depression get to him in May of 2010. On May 2010, Mr. Lynch drove himself to the Jesuit Sacred Heart retirement home in Los Gatos, California. He confronted Father Lindner. He brutally beat him on the face and body.

Mr. Linder was charged with criminal assault. His attorney has plead not guilty and the case is currently pending. Mr. Lynch said “I wanted to exorcise all of the rage and anger and bitterness he put into me. You can’t put into words what this guy did to me. He stole my innocence and destroyed my life”.

I question whether any jury will find Mr. Lynch guilty of taking his revenge for the insidious, incredible and outrageous actions of Father Linder.
