Boy, 11, admits raping a 9-year-old boy 15 times

He has become Britain’s youngest male-on-male rapist.

A boy is in custody awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to one charge of raping the same boy 15 times and three charges of sexual touching involving two other victims.
The child from Blackpool, Lancashire, who has since turned 12, was only caught when the victim’s mother heard "suspicious whispering" on the baby monitor in her son’s bedroom.
The Daily Mail reports that Kerry Grieve, prosecuting, said the offences took place between April last year and last month in the seaside town.
On May 29 this year the defendant was playing with a nine-year-old boy in his bedroom when his mother heard whispering over the baby monitor.
She walked into the bedroom to find the defendant raping her son on the bedroom floor. The defendant told her: “I am sorry, I don’t know why I did it.”
The boy is also charged with sexually assaulting a seven-year-old boy and then twice sexually assaulting an 11-year-old disabled boy while on bail for the rapes.
The defense described the case as tragic for everyone and said the defendant had been the victim of sex abuse himself some years ago.
He added that the boy had pleaded guilty immediately and shown a sense of shame and remorse, and recognised he needed help for his problems.
