A young boy who was raped in Chicago by two Men have refused to open up saying he wanted the incident to remain a secret.
The boy in an interview when asked about the abuse, said he “wanted to keep secrets from himself” and “not remember it”.
“Every single day I worry about the time [my son] will be old enough to fully realise what happened to him. I dread this and know it will be a terrible day.” the child’s father lamented.
The two men, David Bradbury, 55, and William Gamble, 65, who “acted as a team”, offered the boy’s mum £30 and were caught after they uploaded an image of unrelated child abuse to Facebook.
A judge said today that the duo “acted as a team” and groomed the boy using sweets, toys and games.
A police raid of their home found horrific pictures and video in which Bradbury would encourage Gamble as he abused the child.
One grim clip shows the latter raping the boy, reports the Liverpool Echo, while the victim is seen lying naked on a rug in a photo.
Judge Rachel Smith, sentencing today at Liverpool Crown Court, said: “You embarked on a course of grooming and sexually abusive behaviour.”
