Refuse to sign child rapist Ilombe Mboyo

Ilombe Mboyo was one of a violent gang who raped a 14 year old girl.
Before any excuses are made, please take time to absorb. He went to jail for raping a 14 year old girl. A child. There are no excuses for that.
No doubt people will talk about second chances and the need for rehabilitation. I ask those people to think what chances the 14 year old child has had in life after being brutally gang raped at such a young age?
She will not have been launched into a lucrative career where she is applauded and celebrated. She will not have had a life which carries on and a past left behind. She will still be living with the horror of what was done to her - not by her.
Mboyo may have been young and disadvantaged - she was probably those things too - and a girl - and he raped her.
Many girls in this country, like the 1400 girls sexually exploited in Rotherham, are living a similarly bleak future. We need to show them and all rape victims that we care enough to keep rapists of children away from the inevitable spotlight of the media every time their team plays a game.
Please sign to signal to Charlton Athletic that rape and all forms of sexual violence are not something our society can easily ignore for the sake of business, sport or money. Show them that you care about children not money.
Girls not goals.
I cannot thank you enough if you show the FA that it is time they laid down firm rules on players who commit acts of sexual violence returning to football so that this stops happening.
