Child rape has been charged against a ninety-year old Australian who has been detained in Thailand, for sexually abusing four young sisters, the youngest of whom was five.
Karl Joseph Kraus allegedly tempted the kids, now aged seven to 14, to his home with imported chocolates and English lessons, reports the Daily Express.

A district police chief, Kritapol Yeesakorn, said Kraus was arrested on Tuesday at his home near the northern city of Chiang Mai, where police confiscated photographs of about 100 naked children and a variety of sex toys.
Police said they were also investigating whether Kraus was involved in a larger paedophilia network.
