Boys Sentanced For Rape Attempt

Boys sentenced for rape attempt in west London.

Two 11-year-old boys have been given a three year supervision order for the attempted rape of an eight-year-old girl in a west London park.

The girl had alleged she was raped near her home in October and was taken to hospital with stomach pains.

The boys, who were both 10 at the time and cannot be named, were each found guilty of two counts of attempted rape after an Old Bailey trial in May.

The pair, who had denied all charges, were cleared of raping the girl.

These are the two ten year old boys who were put on trial for rape at the old Bailey in May. The eight year old girl who made the accusations later said that "she had lied to her mother about what had happened because she had been "naughty" and was worried she would not get any sweets." They were both later found guilty of attempted rape.

The boys had already been placed on the sex offenders register after the guilty verdict.

There has been a wide ranging debate about weather these children should have been tried in an adult court for what is essentially an adult crime.
