Schoolboy (10) in court for raping another boy

Schoolboy (10) in court for raping another boy

A schoolboy aged 10 is alleged to have raped a classmate in the school toilets after 'acting out' what he'd seen in an adult film, a court has heard.

The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is alleged to have committed the crime when he followed the complainant into the toilets after an English class.

It is also alleged he told the complainant: 'Come on, the party's just getting started.'

The boy, who is now aged 12, has pleaded not guilty to the rape of a 10-year-old boy, while he was also aged 10.

The defendant who sat with his mother and solicitor and not in the dock, has also pleaded not guilty to a second charge of inciting the boy to engage in sexual activity.

At the opening day of the court case at Mold Crown Court, prosecutor Karl Scholz told the jury it was 'frankly troubling' to find allegations of this level 'against someone so young'.

He said the jury might decide that adult films which are available on the internet might lie behind the allegations.

He claimed both the defendant and the victim, who attended the same school in the Colwyn Bay area, had viewed the films.

The alleged offences were 'acting out' what they'd seen, the prosecutor said.

Mr Scholz said: 'It is that which may lie behind the corruption of the minds of the people involved in this case.'

The allegations came about in March last year when the victim was spoken to by teachers about a separate matter.

There were rumours around the school that the victim had acted in a sexual way in the school toilets with his girlfriend.

While teachers were talking to to him about that issue, the boy told teachers what the defendant was alleged to have done to him.

The court heard the first incident allegedly occurred when the defendant asked the victim during an English class if he wanted to have sex with him.

The prosecutor said it was 'an unusual question' for a 10-year-old boy to ask another.

The victim allegedly said 'no way' and thought the boy was joking.

After the lesson and before he went for lunch, the victim went to the toilet.

As he left, the defendant walked in and allegedly grabbed hold of him and raped him.

Mr Scholz told the court that the boy was embarrassed and did not tell anyone initially, fearing he would be called gay.

But after telling the teachers in March last year, the boy then told his parents and the matter was reported to the police.

When interviewed by police, the victim said he hated the defendant.

He described him as 'Mr Goody-Good' in front of teachers but said he was 'mean and rude' in the playground, Mr Scholz said.

He alleged that the defendant would swear at him and call him gay.

During police interview, the defendant accepted that he had been mean to the victim a couple of times, but he denied he had bullied him.

He claimed he had never asked him for sex and nothing sexual had happened between them, the court was told.

The defendant alleged that the victim had threatened to tell others he had sex with him after he had told teachers of the rumours about the complainant and his girlfriend.

The trial continues.
