A young girl was raped in her own home by her 13-year-old brother.
The boy of the United Kingdom, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for raping his sister.
The case came before the Lincoln Crown Court, where a judge was told that the teen boy raped his sister more than 50 times over a two year span.
The boy was charged with six counts of rape and was convicted by a jury during a trial.
The girl was only 9 years old when she was being raped by her 13-year-old brother. The abuse lasted for two years and ended when the boy began dating another girl.
“Her innocence was taken away in the very place she should have found safe, her home,” the judge told the suspect.
The judge also told the teenager that he would have imposed a 20-year sentence for similar offenses committed by an adult, but since he was still a teen he was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
