Man arrested in rape of two young children

  • Follow Crime & courts

An Augusta man was arrested Friday afternoon over the rape of two children in February 2006, according to a Richmond County sheriff's report.

Kenneth Antwan Leverett, 21, was arrested at 3:15 p.m. and charged with aggravated child molestation.

An Augusta woman told police in January that she had spoken with her children and learned that Leverett and another man had raped them in their home in February 2006, according to the incident report. The children were 6 and 7 at the time, according to the report.

If guilty, a firing squad

If guilty, a firing squad would certainly be appropriate.

etlinks...thankfully you
Unpublished

etlinks...thankfully you don't understand. There are many reasons it could take five years, fear & shame are just two. For me, it was that I did not know the words or understand the act itself. I was 11 when I was finally able to describe what happened to me at 5. My mother did nothing...thankfully their mom stood up for them. That will help their healing considerably.

In many cases the child

In many cases the child blocks the memory of it out but ends up acting out the problem and if you are lucky, after their lives have been destroyed by low self esteam and not understanding why they do what they do, they maybe be able to recover the memory in their 30s and deal with it. However, their lives are forever altered after that and their personality is too. It has very negative effects on them and everyone around them.

Innocence lost in this manner

Innocence lost in this manner is never recovered. They have lost their childhood and will live in shame until they are old enough to cope with what happened, and they are forever changed. This less than human being should be drawn and quartered and fed to the wild dogs. This would send a strong message to anyone else who is this depraved.

I just hope it is true. False

I just hope it is true. False accusations are rare, but they brand one forever. If true, I hope the prison population finds out; they don't have much use for child molesters.
