A 17-year-old teenager from Burbage admitted to raping a 5-year-old girl. The incident occurred after they played video games in his bedroom in 2014.
The names of the teenager and little girl were not revealed due to their age. However, the teenager was 16 at the time of the rape and the little girl was 5. According to Metro, the boy and girl were playing video games in his bedroom in December of 2014. After they finished playing the game, the teenager proceeded to kiss his victim, remove the little girl’s clothing, and rape her. When the teenager finished, he told the little girl that it was a secret and she should not tell anyone.
During court, it was ruled that the teenager would not spend time in jail. However, he would be required to register as a sex offender for two and a half years, attend a sex offender program, and pay a £15 victim surcharge (equivalent to approximately $22.79), according to the Hinckley Times.
The victims parents call the sentence “pathetic,” and the little girl’s mother felt sick that justice was not served.
“This whole thing has ripped our family apart. When I heard the sentence being handed down I felt sick.”
