A teenager who raped a four-year-old girl while babysitting her was spared a custodial sentence after a judge heard he had been ‘corrupted’ by internet pornography.
In a disturbing case that has raised fresh concerns about the sexualisation of children, the 14-year-old told his young victim to cover her eyes before performing an indecent act on her while her parents were out.
But instead of jailing the boy, a judge spared spared him, blaming ‘the world and society’ for his exposure to explicit sexual material on the web.
The case comes amid growing alarm about the impact of sexual content on the internet on Britain’s children.
Just last month, a government report found a wave of depraved sex attacks across Britain was being carried out by youngsters who have had their minds warped by online porn.
Appearing in the dock wearing his school uniform, the teenager, now 15, was handed a three-year community order at Cambridge Crown Court.
The boy who cannot be named for legal reasons pleaded guilty to raping a girl aged under 13 after his victim told her father what had happened.
I really cannot believe this story… I mean… what is the point of putting your child through the court process?
To see the person that raped a pre-school child WALK AWAY FROM COURT?
This is disgusting.
No other word can really describe it.
