A 12-year-old boy has been tried and found guilty of sexually assaulting his six-year-old sister after he raped her when he tried to practice porn scenes he had watched.
The boy, who could not be named for legal reasons, said he had learnt the skills from popular video game, Grand Theft Auto.
Local media reports indicate that the boy assaulted his sister on multiple occasions at their home in Swindon, England, whenever the adults were either asleep or in a different room.
In one instance, the media claimed, after the boy watched a sexual scene from the Grand Theft Auto, he raped his sister while their other younger sibling was in the room with them.
The sexual assaults only came to light after the young girl confided in a friend, telling them that her brother forced her to do something he’d called “special bundles” and “snuggles.”
When speaking with the judge, the boy vowed to stop, saying, “I have learned that it’s wrong.”
He was given a 12-month referral order, which will require him to go to an out-of-town therapeutic facility. On completion, the charges he pleaded guilty to will be considered “spent,” and removed from his criminal record.
However, he will be registered on a sex offenders’ list for a period of two-and-a-half years.
