Web pornography ‘led to child school rape’ court told

The BBC is reporting that a court has heard internet pornography was likely to be behind the rape of a 10-year-old boy by a fellow pupil in school toilets…

Karl Scholz, prosecuting, told Mold Crown Court the defendant was “acting out” what he had seen.

He claimed pornography was viewed by both the defendant and the complainant.

The 12-year-old pleaded not guilty to the rape two years ago, and inciting the boy to engage in sexual activity at the school in the Colwyn Bay area.

In March last year the complainant was spoken to by teachers following rumours in the school about his sexual behaviour.

It was during this time, the court heard, the boy told teachers what the defendant was alleged to have done to him.

That night he told his parents and the matter was reported to the police…

During police interviews, the defendant admitted he had been mean to the complainant but had not bullied him.

He said he had never asked him for sex, nothing sexual had happened between them and he only asked him out as a joke.

The case continues…
