  • Defendant admitted two counts of rape at an earlier hearing in court
  • Sentenced to 12-month intensive referral order to improve his behaviour
A
boy believed to be Britain’s youngest ever convicted rapist abused his
younger sister twice when he was just 11, a court heard today.
The
defendant from Plymouth, Devon, carried out the sex attacks on his
nine-year-old sibling on two separate occasions at their home.
No
motive for the rapes was given but Bodmin Magistrates’ Court in
Cornwall heard the boy was later found with ‘images’ on his mobile
phone.

The
boy, who is now living in Cornwall aged 12 and cannot be identified for
legal reasons, admitted two counts of rape at an earlier hearing.
The
court did not outline the offences in detail but said they took place
on February 26 and March 8 this year and he ejaculated on at least one
occasion.
District
Judge Diane Baker sentenced the boy to a 12-month intensive referral
order which means he will work with experts to improve his behaviour.
The
youngster, who wore a white, untucked shirt and oversized blue tie to
court, was also put on the sex offenders’ register for two and a half
years.
The
judge told the boy: ‘I’ve read all about you. I know a lot about what
has happened in your life and your mum’s life in the past and the
difficulties you faced and the confusion you face now about how you wish
to lead your life.
‘But what you did was so serious and so damaging to your little sister.
‘She
was nine years old – she does not understand about those things and you
hurt her so seriously that that will last with her for the whole of her
life.
‘If
you were older, I’m telling you now you would be serving a sentence of
detention – that’s like prison. But you were only 11.’
The judge described the ejaculation as an ‘aggravating factor.’
The
boy was supported in court by his mother and foster mother. They sat
either side of him in a row of chairs set up in front of the
glass-panelled dock.
The
court heard that ‘images’ had been found on his phone and as a result,
the judge asked that he would be supervised when using the internet.

No further details of what the images showed were heard in court.
Judge Baker also said that she wanted social services to make sure the boy had access to ‘male influences in his life’.
She
said to him: ‘Do you promise me that you’re going to work with
everybody and this is not going to happen again? How do you feel about
going back to school?’
The boy, who spoke in a quiet, mumbled tone, replied: ‘I’m happy to go back to school and make friends.’
The
judge added: ‘I know it must be tough for you not to see your brothers
and sisters but that’s going to have to remain until it’s safe.’
She told him he would have to cooperate with the authorities and carry out the intensive referral order – or come back to court.
She
asked him: ‘If you don’t do it, what do you think will happen?’ The boy
– who had to be told to speak up by the judge – replied: ‘I don’t
know.’
The judge said: ‘They will say you will have to go back in front of Judge Baker – and that’s me.
‘I need to know what’s happening with this order and I need to know your behaviour is improving.’
Speaking in court, the boy’s mother said she was happy he was getting the help and support needed.
Emily
Pitts, prosecuting, had earlier told the judge: ‘I don’t know how much
detail you require from me. It is such a distressing case for all those
involved.’
Jodie
Leonard, defending, said: ‘He is due to start at school again – I asked
him how he is getting on. He is working really hard.’
Previously
Britain’s youngest convicted rapist was a boy from Bolton, Greater
Manchester, who attacked two girls a few months before he turned 12 in
2012.
After the boy’s sentencing, the NSPCC described the case as ‘horrific.’
An
NSPCC spokesman for South West England said: ‘This is a horrific and
tragic case which must have caused tremendous difficulties within the
family involved.
‘Support
must now be provided to help the victim in this case. Abuse can ruin
childhoods and have a lasting impact into adulthood without the right
help.
‘The boy responsible must also receive help to ensure there is no repeat of the offences he carried out against another child.’
