12 year old school boy is one of the youngest in the country to have ever been convicted of rape and get such a harsh punishment. Two girls claimed that the boy allegedly raped them.

One is an 11yrs old girl and the other girl is only 7yrs old. The boy was sentenced to 4yrs in prison. He had to also register himself as a sex offender. The court heard that the victims have been psychologically affected by the ordeals. 

The older girl tried to commit suicide and the 7yrs old girl has been having nightmares. At the sentencing of the boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, Judge Mark Brown pointed out that he came from a broken home and his parents had a difficult relationship.
The judge told the boy: “This girls innocence were taken away when you forced yourself onto them. They have suffered psychological harm and it has impacted on their parents as well. You have shown little remorse for it." The mother sat in the courtroom sobbing as her 12 year old son was ordered to register as a sex offender for life.
