(Newser) – Four children, the youngest just 5 years old, were fed powerful painkillers they knew as "silly pills" and forced to perform sex shows for crowds in a small Texas town, AP reports. Locals had believed the site of the shows was just a swinger’s club. Six adults have been charged in the case, including a parent of children involved; two were convicted and another will be tried today. All three face life in prison.
