A 14-year-old boy raped a six-year-old boy and sexually abused a child aged just two, a court heard. 

He pleaded guilty to raping the six-year-old last August and admitted five further counts of causing or inciting that child into sexual activity in August and in March.

The teenager admitted touching both children indecently at Plymouth Crown Court, where he sat in the well of the court alongside his grandparents wearing a suit.

Reports will be prepared on the youth before he is sentenced but his barrister accepted that custody was ‘ultimately inevitable’.

Prosecutor Miss Jo Martin said the boy had admitted all the offences in a series of three police interviews.

The youth, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was remanded into the care of the city council and placed in a home in Sussex.

Judge Paul Darlow adjourned sentence for reports from a psychologist, a member of the city’s Youth Offending Team and staff at his children’s home.

The youth has been remanded into the care of the city council and placed in a home in Sussex.

The court heard he was technically in custody, but not under lock and key and staff at the home would call the police if he absconded.

Jo Martin, for the Crown Prosecution Service, said the teen had admitted all the offences in a series of police interviews.

Michael Green, barrister for the youth, said he was at a specialist home for adolescent boys from difficult backgrounds who were a risk of causing sexual harm.

The defendant, who has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, will be sentenced in October.
