90-year-old charged for raping four sisters

A 90-year-old German-born Australian, Joseph Kraus Karl, was arrested at his house in Chiang Mai province after police received a complaint from the kids’ father. Parents of the four accused him of using sweets and money to lure the minors to his home where they claimed he sexually abused them on several occasions between July 2008 and June this year.

Karl approached their family in 2008 and offered to teach the kids English. The girls, aged 7, 11, 12 and 14 were allegedly abused repeatedly after being invited to visit Karl’s property in 2008.

Chiang Mai police Lieutenant Colonel Prawit Choosri said

Despite his age he still seems to have the desire, although we don’t know whether he could act on it, but under Thai law any form of penetration is considered rape.

Pornographic photos and videos were also found in his home. If convicted, he faces a maximum of 20 years in jail.
