2011-12-01 14:14

Pretoria - Nine members of a Pretoria family appeared in the Pretoria North Regional Court on Thursday on a string of charges relating to sexually assaulting children.

Magistrate Pieter Nel postponed the matter to January 16, as some of the accused did not have legal representatives. He said a trial date would be set in January.

Prosecutor Tania Carstens said the State was ready to proceed with the trial.

The four couples and the unmarried son of one of the couples face more than 100 charges under the Sexual Offences Act. They include raping and sexually assaulting children, sexually grooming children, exposing children to pornography and benefiting from child pornography.

Six children, aged 4 and older, were allegedly used in sex movies which were then distributed.

    BRING BACK THE DEATH SENTENCE, these poor children will never be normal again. If it was up to me those people will die a very slow and painful death, I will use acid, salt, razors and leather shredded belts. I hope then the rest of the population will catch a wake up call. Yea I know it is radical, but it is needed.

    Bunch of degenrates! Their is no punishment good enough to fit this crime. The 4 year old has still got at least 60 years to live with this horror.

    I agree, bring back the "Death Penalty". There is no room in society for people like this, they deserve to die!!!!
