Teenage boy jailed over second child rape
Published: 12th Nov 2009 14:00:00
A teenage boy who kidnapped and raped a five-year-old boy has been jailed for at least three years.
The 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, admitted a number of charges including abducting and raping the child.
It has since transpired the attack took place just eight days after he was handed a three-year community order on June 26th for raping a seven-year-old in Tameside, Greater Manchester.
On Wednesday the teenager was handed an indeterminate sentence for the protection of the public following the second attack and must now serve a minimum of three years before being considered for parole.
Handing down the sentence, Judge Peter Lakin told him: "The offences you have committed are deeply disturbing and very serious.
"You are a devious and manipulative young man with an unhealthy and completely unacceptable sexual interest in young boys.
"It is likely you will not be released for some very considerable period of time."
The original community sentence handed down by Judge Adrian Smith for the first attack has obviously provoked outrage in light of his later actions.
The sentence had already sparked an appeal by the crown prosecution service (CPS).
The original community rehabilitation order has now been revoked and the teenager was instead resentenced for both sentences to three years and four months to run concurrently.
The 16-year-old has also been banned from working with children and placed on the Sex Offenders Register.
