Teen rapist returns to local school after attack on four-year-old girl

By Kelly Rose Bradford, Jul 13, 2012

A boy of 15 who raped a girl of four when he was 14 has been allowed to return to his old school, much to the fury of some parents.

The boy – who cannot be named for legal reasons – raped the four-year-old girl when her parents asked him to babysit her for two hours.

Whilst the mum and dad – who knew the boy and were friends with his family – were out watching their other child in a Christmas play – the youth blindfolded the little girl with a Hello Kitty apron and raped her.

Now, he has returned to his local school after a judge let him off with community and sexual offence prevention orders.

Judge Gareth Hawkesworth, sitting at Cambridge Crown Court, blamed society for letting the boy be corrupted by online porn.

The youth confessed after the little girl told her parents what had happened. The boy told the police he had ‘lost his mind’ and that his ‘hormones took over’.

Despite the boy’s identity not being released, one parent with children at the boy’s school said a lot of the other mums and dads knew exactly who he was and were ‘extremely fearful’.

A spokesman from the boy’s school told The Sun: “It would be wholly inappropriate to comment on arrangements for an individual pupil.

“The school’s focus will be on ensuring it meets the educational and well-being needs of all pupils.”

Judge blames ‘society’ for schoolboy’s rape of five-year-old girl

 

 A judge has caused a storm of outrage after he blamed SOCIETY for a schoolboy raping a five year-old girl.

The 14 year-old boy was babysitting  the girl when he attacked her, a court heard.

But Judge Gareth Hawkesworth let him walk free because he said the schoolboy, who regularly accessed hardcore pornography on his laptop, was just being impulsive.

The judge told him: “I believe you have become sexualised by your exposure to and the corruption of pornography. Your exposure at such a young age has ended in tragedy.

“It was the fault of the world and society.”

But the judge’s decision – and his reasons – caused fury amongst radio phone-in callers.

One said: “If a teenager  steals a car and crashes it into a bus queue, do you blame the car?”

Others said the boy’s parents should be held to account for not supervising his access to online pornography.

The decision not to imprison the boy came as the judge admitted he would have got six and a half years if he had been 18. Instead he was handed a three-year community order.

The youngster was paid £10 to babysit at the girl’s home.

He admitted the rape after his victim told her horrified father.

Julia Flanagan, defending, told Cambridge Crown Court: “He was watching excessive pornography, which was very inappropriate for his age. We have a very frightened and remorseful boy who is very ashamed. This was an isolated incident. There was no threat or force used.”

The boy, who is now 15 told police he had “lost his mind”.

He added: “I think my hormones took over.”

The judge said: “I’m satisfied it was impulsive.”

He imposed a five-year sexual offences prevention order – barring the boy from using computers or mobile devices to view porn.
