A schoolboy who raped his 4 years old sister and then bribed her to keep quiet with a bag of Skittles had a large amount of porn on his mobile phone. The 12 years old boy repeatedly raped the girl while pair played games of hide and seek. The girl, who is now 5, told her mother of her nightmare ordeal while she was in bath. Yesterday boy, who is now 13 years old, admitted raping and sexually touching his own sister. He was found guilty of a second count of rape after a hearing at Brighton Youth Court. Court was told ¬†boy possessed a mobile phone and investigators had found a significant amount of porn on it. Youth offending experts will now carry out weeks of assessment to decide whether he poses a risk to public and whether he should face jail. At an earlier hearing mother of the girl, who is half sister to boy, wiped away tears as she described how her little girl had told her. ‘She said to me “mummy I want to tell you something”. She did not normally tell 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.’ The mother told the girl had divulged further details about a week later, giving details of at least 2 occasions when she was raped and another time she was sexually assaulted. Her mother told ‘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”.’ At hearing yesterday District Judge Teresa Szagun a significant amount of pornographic material had been found on boy’s phone and the judge warned the boy that he faces possibility of a severe custodial sentence. The judge told ‘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 boy has already been subjected to psychological assessments to see whether he can tell difference between right and wrong. Boy changed his pleas from not guilty on 2 of charges midway through his trial which had been adjourned from last month.
