Here’s a perfect example to prove there are no kids nowadays. A 12-year-old boy raped a nine-year-old girl because he wanted to like ‘feel grown up’ after watching hard-core porn online. And guess what? He walked away from court scot-free.
The word, according to Daily Mail:
In a disturbing case that has raised fresh concerns about the sexualisation of children, the teenager had unrestricted access to the web and was able to freely look at sexually explicit material.
He then ‘emulated’ the graphic footage and attacked a neighbour’s daughter, the High Court in Edinburgh (Scotland) heard.
Yesterday his lawyer warned the case was just the ‘tip of the iceberg’ and many other cases were going unreported.
The Daily Mail has campaigned for an automatic block on online porn, calling for a consultation on the introduction of content filtering systems for internet accounts.
Sean Templeton, defending the boy, said: ‘There is a real risk that young people are growing up with a skewed view of what sex is and sexual activity.
‘This was an emulation of an adult act witnessed by him at this young age. He was afforded unfettered access to the internet and it has become apparent from a very young age, the age of 12, he was accessing hard-core pornography.’
Mr Templeton said it was a great concern that children may be getting their sex education through internet pornography.
He warned: ‘This is the tip of the iceberg. Many, many cases throughout the country may not be identified, not reported, not coming to anyone’s attention.’
The shocking case, on the Isle of Skye in Scotland, only came to light when the young victim felt ill and told her mother she feared there was ‘a baby in my tummy’.
Asked if something had happened to her, she became hysterical before revealing what the boy had done.
Police discovered the girl had been sexually aulted a number of times in a shed in the garden of her home between December 1, 2010 and January 31 2011.
The boy, who lived next door, also abused the girl in his bedroom in front of a 12-year-old friend.
When he was interviewed by police the boy pointed out the sites he had viewed and when asked why he had copied them, he answered ‘temptation’ and ‘to feel grown up’.
He was later placed in a secure unit hundreds of miles away. Earlier this month the teenager stood shaking in the dock as he pleaded guilty to one charge of rape and two of sexual ault.
