A Maryland 14-year old is being charged as an adult in the alleged rape of his 8-year-old cousin.

Solomon Pule’s mother turned him in to authorities last Monday, according to CBS Baltimore.

According to reports,  Pule’s mother came downstairs to see the teen on top of his cousin on a love seat. The little girl’s skirt was lifted, Pule’s pants were down, and a pair of scissors sat next to the two, according to the statement.

“He told me if I was to scream that he was going to cut me,” the victim told police. “He shoved his thing in me.”

Pule’s mother told police she had instructed her son and niece to clean up the living room while she put her 2-year-old down for a nap upstairs. Believing it to be too quiet, the mother went downstairs to investigate and caught her son in the act, according to WUSA 9.

Police said Pule admitted to the crime during an interrogation. He is now being charged as an adult.

Dr. Carla Rhodes, a psychotherapist based out of Maryland who has worked in the Maryland prison system, has issues with children being charged as adults in cases such as these. “I feel when a child is charged as an adult it doesn’t address the child’s personal history and the circumstances that render them to do such extraordinary violence,” Dr. Rhodes stated.

    This is so sad. I feel so bad for the mother and the little girl. To walk in on your son doing something like that – that has got to hurt deeply.
    Do I think he needs psychological help? Yes. Do I think he should be locked up? Yes. But, not in an adult prison. I’m not familiar with the ins and outs of the prison system, but couldn’t he stay in juvenile until he’s 21 and then moved to an adult prison? I think that would be the more appropriate choice.

    This boy may not be a psychopath but maybe addicted to p0rn. The symptoms of this addiction are similar to psychopath as he is too young and immature to understand s*x. The following are symptoms of this addiction:

    – isolation from the others – lack of desire to interact with other people
    – low weight due to fewer and fewer meals
    – erection problems
    – de-sensitivity
    – decrease pleasure while having sex
    – problems keeping a the relation with girlfriend, family and friends
    – lack ability to socialize
    – less time to do other things
    – concentration problems
    – lack of interest for life

  • i wonder if the parents get punished for any of this. if the kid had destroyed someone’s property, the parent’s would have been on the hook. the troubling part is he’s a minor. the very same reason he’s not legally allowed to do anything without his parents. their shitty job as parents led to this and they ought to be held accountable just as this boy is.

    Thank God the mother came and stopped this sick little pervert. This is so sad. I feel sorry for the poor little girl. Someone must have molested the boy and now he is acting out on his little cousin., He needs help as well.
