A BOY of 12 who raped a nine-year-old girl after watching hard-core porn online was shown mercy by a court yesterday.

The lad, now 14, was spared a spell behind bars as a judge instead put him under supervison until he is 18 for the chance to “make something” of himself.

At the High Court in Edinburgh, Lady Smith told him: “You should not and must not regard pornography as any guide at all as to how to behave sexually.”

But the boy’s lawyer Sean Templeton told the court a generation of youngsters was growing up “with a skewed view of sex” because of early exposure to web porn.

He said “This is the tip of the iceberg. Many cases may not be identified, not reported.”

Mr Templeton told how the boy had identified to cops the websites he had visited — and told officers in an interview he assaulted the little girl so he could feel grown up.

He went on: “He was afforded unfettered access to the internet and it has become apparent from the age of 12, he was accessing hardcore pornography. The behaviour witnessed was reminiscent of the acts carried out by him.”

The boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, had earlier admitted statutory offences of rape and sexual assault committed between December 1 in 2010 and January 31, 2011, in a Scottish island community. The offences did not include full sex. Prosecutor Jane Farquharson said the offences came to light after the girl complained of a sore stomach and would not accept her mother’s explanations for what might be wrong.

The victim eventually asked if her problem could be because she was about to have a baby.

When her mother asked if something had happened, she became hysterical before revealing what the boy had done. Inquiries revealed a 12-year-old friend of the boy had seen a sex act being carried out.

Mr Templeton said that, in a statement, the girl’s mother had expressed the view that she would like the boy to get help.

The case was heard in a closed courtroom with only relatives of the accused, care workers and members of the Press in the public benches.
