A young boy was arrested on a charge of rape after being accused of raping his younger sister at home, according to police in the United Kingdom.

Now, the 11-year-old boy of Devon, has been ordered to see a psychiatrist after pleading guilty to two counts of rape in connection with the rape of his sister, who was not identified.

According to the police investigation, the boy, who was not identified, raped his sister several times earlier this year.

Despite the seriousness of the crime, the boy was allowed to go home as he was given unconditional bail. He was ordered to see a psychiatrist and met with a youth offender officer. He will be sentenced late next month.

The boy is believed to be the youngest child ever to plead guilty to rape in the country.
