A young girl was forced to perform a sex act on a year-old boy under "peer pressure" by an older teen who threatened to share photographs. Roisin Lacey SC, defending, said the incident, which lasted for about 10 seconds before the girl ran off, was stage managed by the older boy. Her client, now aged 17, subsequently pleaded guilty to engaging in a sexual act with a child at a place in Co Dublin on August 25, The Central Criminal Court heard that four days earlier the older boy forced the girl to give him oral sex while other boys, including the 14 year old, were present nearby.
Some of these took images, though the defendant did not. The victim felt she had to do it and said she couldn't stop shaking during the incident. They took away my independence," she said, adding that fear has taken her over now. The defendant had his hands down by his side during the incident and did not touch the girl or say anything to her, Ms Lacey said. Ms Lacey added that the incident was a once off act, stage managed by the older boy.
Her client had just turned 14 himself and believed the victim was also She said a Probation Service report noted he had little understanding of the concept of consent, and didn't realise the victim and he himself were both too young to consent.
Sentencing him yesterday, Mr Justice Michael White said there were "particularly demeaning" aspects to the offence for which this defendant was not responsible. He accepted that the accused was acting under the influence of his older co-accused but that the younger boy nevertheless acted in a reprehensible way and participated in the humiliation of the victim.
Mr Justice White said the aggravating factors in the case were the seriousness of the offence and the impact the offence had on the victim. He said the case was mitigated by the accused's age, his previous good character, the influence of the co-accused, the offence being out of character and his awareness now of the impact on the victim. Mr Justice White ordered that the younger boy carry out hours of community service in lieu of a one-year term of detention.
