|Two of the child’s drawings|
A mother was horrified to find a drawing that showed a child being sexually abused.
The mother of Brazil, took her daughter to a child psychologist after she suddenly refused to attend English classes at their church.
The classes were taught by the priest of the church, who was identified as 54-year-old Father Joao da Silva.
The therapist suspected that the 5-year-old girl was being sexually abused at church and encouraged her parents to search her room for clues.
The parents found six drawings hidden among her books, showing a child being sexually abused.
One of the drawings showed a man standing over a child who had a look of terror on her face, the parents said.
Another picture shows a girl lying on a bed with a man forcing himself between her legs.
The photo appears to show the girl screaming in fear or distress.
The child’s father confronted da Silva of Montes Claros, and he was arrested after admitting to sexually abusing the young girl.
