Ten-Year-Old British Boys Convicted of Attempted Rape

Following their conviction the boys were ordered to register as sex offenders

BBC News, 1 July 2010
source:http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10481012

The young girl, testifying by video link, was sheltered from having to face the boys she was accusing. Even with conditions so conducive to the support of those making false accusations, the girl admitted she had lied about the rape attempt to cover for her doing something naughty.

Despite all of this, the boys were convicted of attempted rape anyway. Besides destroying the boys' lives, such ludicrous prosecutions undermine public faith in the justice system and feed a spreading backlash against the abuse industry as a whole. No wonder that the bloated sex offender registry is increasingly the butt of comedians' jokes.

The BBC News article concludes with:

Following their conviction the boys were ordered to register as sex offenders, although the judge said he was "not quite sure" how this applied to children of their age.

Mr Justice Saunders said the trial had been an "extremely difficult case."

Prosecutors told the trial that the boys had approached the girl when she was playing with a friend.

She was taken to a block of flats, a bin shed and a field by the pair.

The girl's mother told the court she had found her daughter with the boys near a field after another child said the boys were hurting her.

But barristers for the boys said they had only been playing a game like doctors and nurses.

When the child victim was cross-examined, she said she had lied to her mother about the incident because she had been "naughty"...
