In a shocking case, a boy pleaded guilty to one charge against a 14-year-old boy, and three charges against a 11-year-old girl after he was caught performing a sex act on the crying boy.
All the offences took place in Dorset.
At a youth court in Poole, a judge heard how the boy's mother reported her own son to police after she caught him in the act with the schoolboy.
An 11-year-old girl later told her mum that the boy had raped her at his home and two more times in an alley near the property, according to Bournemouth Echo reports.
The court heard that the boy was friends with his two victims. None of those involved in the case can be named for legal reasons.
The raped boy's mum, in a victim impact statement read to the court, said that since the incident the victim boy’s behaviour has changed drastically at home and at school. He had been running up and down the stairs screaming in the night and is having counselling at school for anger and emotions.
The 11-year-old girl's mum said in her statement that the girl became very violent and angry which is something that she was not before.
District Judge Stephen Nicholls told the boy after his guilty pleas: "If you had been an adult and pleaded guilty to those matters the sentence would have been measured in many years of imprisonment.”
The boy was given a 12-month referral order to a Youth Offending Team....
