90-year-old man charged with raping young girls in thailand

This is absolutely sickening. In Bangkok, a 90-year-old Australian man has been arrested and charged with raping four young sisters whom he allegedly lured to this home in Thailand with imported chocolates and English lessons: Australian, 90, accused of raping 4 Thai sisters. Grossed out yet?
Karl Joseph Kraus was arrested Tuesday at his home near the northern city of Chiang Mai, where police confiscated about 100 photographs of naked children, said Doi Saket police Chief Kritapol Yeesakorn.

Some photos showed Kraus posing naked with other children, and police are trying to identify them and contact their families, Kritapol said. He said police were investigating if Kraus was part of a pedophilia network, noting many of the pictures were e-mailed overseas.

Kraus, who has lived in Thailand for more than a decade, approached the girls' family in 2008 with an offer to teach the sisters English, Kritapol said.

"He would lure them into his house with sweets, usually chocolate from abroad or luxury sweets, and he would ask them to perform sexual acts with him," Kritapol said. "For the eldest of the four sisters, he recently gave her 4,000 baht ($120) instead of sweets."
Karl Kraus is thought to be the oldest person ever accused of child molestation in Thailand, which unfortunately has become the destination of choice for sex tourists looking to prey on children: Thailand fights to stem tide of child sex tourists.

Perhaps Thailand can look into what South Korea is doing... Last week, South Korea's parliament voted to legalize chemical castration as punishment for convicted child sex offenders: SKorea votes to legalize chemical castration. They are not messing around over there.
