Nah for rape trials, you don't need four witnesses. The four witnesses thing only counts for (mutual) fornication and adultery.
In cases of rape, any concrete evidence would be used to punish the rapist; it's a grave sin as well.
Btw they're not talking about nine year olds; they're talking about increasing the age of marriage to 18 rather than 16.
