A 12-year-old boy from Lupane area of Zimbabwe was convicted of raping his three-year-old neighbor at a school cottage.

During his arraignment in court, the boy admitted to raping the 3-year-old and told the magistrate that he had been experimenting after he had watched a porn video on his friend’s phone.

The Sunday News reports that Lupane Regional Magistrate Mr Collet Ncube convicted the minor of the rape charge because of the youth’s guilty plea.

“I have taken into account that you have pleaded guilty to the charge, didn’t waste the court’s time and that you are 12 years old.

“The court also notes that at 12 years you are still able to reform and have taken into account that the commission the offence was as a result of exposure to po_rno_graphic material

“…You committed a serious offence and what saves you is your age. I will agree with the recommendation of the probation officer. You are hereby cautioned and discharged as well as placed under the supervision of a probation officer for two years.”
