Boy admits raping sister, 8, after watching porn on Xbox

Feb. 5, 2014 at 4:46 PM

BLACKBURN, England, Feb. 5 (UPI) -- A boy, 13, raped his sister, 8, after watching pornography on an Xbox game console, he admitted Wednesday in a Blackburn, England, court.

The unidentified boy also pleaded guilty to indecently assaulting the girl and forcing her to perform a sexual act on him, the British newspaper The Mirror reported.

He told Blackburn Magistrates Court he chose his sister because she was small and "couldn't remember stuff."

The court ordered him to live with relatives, away from his sister, while law enforcement agencies prepare a presentencing report on him. The girl is under the care of police specialists, the newspaper said.

Blackburn Member of Parliament Jack Straw called the case "breathtakingly horrible. It's a horrifying crime which underlines how porn is too readily available to juveniles."

Straw, a former home and foreign secretary in the Labor government, told the Lancashire Telegraph it is the responsibility of Internet service providers to make certain children could not access sexually explicit material.
