A boy was arrested after raping his mother in their home, police in the United Kingdom said.

It is alleged that the offense took place in their family home in Blackpool, over the weekend.

Although this is not the first time a man was arrested for raping his mother, this 14-year-old boy is said to be the youngest person to be charged with raping his own mother. The teenager, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared before District Judge Jeff Brailsford in the Blackpool Magistrate’s Court.

So far, the teenager was not granted bail. The judge remanded the him into custody. Today, children have easier access to porn, which then leads to young boys raping family members while trying to imitate what they see.

As we reported earlier, an investigation was launched after a young boy had access to hardcore porn at his school’s computer room.

The 12-year-old of Wales, United Kingdom, raped his younger sister while imitating the scenes he saw on porn videos, a court heard. The boy became addicted to hardcore porn after downloading them at school. He then imitated the scenes with his younger sister.

The boy admitted to three counts of raping his sister, who is 10-years-old, when he appeared before Newport Crown Court. The rape, which happened over the course of a year, took place in the house of a family member where the brother and sister shared a bedroom, Newport Crown Court heard.

Judge Thomas Crowther QC said that the case is a stark reminder that the Internet is not a babysitter, but needs constant adult supervision. “It is a sad fact that many kids his age have been exposed to adult pornography,” the judge added.

The 12-year-old was sentenced to three years in youth rehabilitation. He was ordered to register as a sex offender for two-and-a-half years.

The child will not be taken away from his parents, who were by his side in the courtroom. Officials have launched an investigation into how the child was able to access pornography on the school’s computer.
