A 13-year-old boy appeared before a Brighton court for raping his half- sister while they played hide and seek game then bribed her with a bag of Skittles, Dailymail reported.
The court was told the boy possessed a mobile phone and investigators had found a significant amount of porn on it.
The mother of the five-year-old girl narrated how her child opened up to her about the matter
“She said to me ‘mummy I want to tell you something’. She didn’t normally say things with such an introductory manner,’ the girl’s mother said.
‘She wanted to tell me. It was something important to her. She said it happened while they were playing hide and seek.’
According to the mother, the girl was able to tell her at least three occasions of the rape.
Her mother explained, “She said he offered her sweeties to do this. She said she didn’t like it but she liked the sweeties.
“I said to her liking sweeties was perfectly all right but he should never have offered her sweets to do something like that.
“She said, ‘he made me like Skittles’. She was clearly cross about that. I said to her ‘why didn’t you tell mummy?’ and she said ‘he told me not to’.”
During the court proceeding, District Judge Teresa Szagun said a significant amount of pornographic material had been found on the boy’s phone and warned the boy that he faces the possibility of a severe custodial sentence.
Judge Teresa said, “I’m sure what she described is accurately what happened to her. The way she spoke was very factual and articulate.
“She was able to tell me about those experiences very well. What she describes was you making her take off her skirt and pants, telling her not to tell, it was a secret, giving her sweets.”
The court was told that the boy has already been subjected to psychological assessments to see whether he can tell the difference between right and wrong.
