At the age of 8 J.J. forced two six-year girls to perform oral sex, and was charged with first-degree sodomy and first degree sexual assault. The boy liked to hit other children, as well as his teachers, the investigation reveals. Even though the boy was diagnosed with conduct disorder, supposedly related to his father's absence, the mother refused to acknowledge the problem and give him the prescribed medication. At last J.J. ended up in a group home in upstate New York, Village Voice report.
