A 12-year-old boy is believed to be Britain’s youngest ever convicted rapist after he admitted two sex attacks on his sister when he was aged just 11.

The boy aged 12 is described as a small boy carried out the attacks on his nine-year-old sister on two occasions.

The boy cannot be named for legal reasons admitted two counts of rapes at his home in Plymouth.

The girl was raped during February 26th and March 8th the court was told that he ejaculated during on of the sex attacks.

 

Police became aware of the incident when images were found on his mobile phone.

District Judge Diane Baker told him: ‘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.

‘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 youngster was sentenced to a 12-month intensive referral order, which means he will work with experts to improve his behaviour and put on the sex offenders’ register for two and a half years.

He was supported in court by his mother and foster mother.
