Teen who admitted raping his own niece walks free with no conviction
A teenager who admitted raping his own niece has been released without conviction by a Queensland judge.
The girl was just seven-years-old when her then-16-year-old uncle abused her on three separate occasions.
The now-17-year-old pleaded guilty to three counts of indecent treatment of a child under 12 and one count of digital rape.
His lawyer claims he doesn’t remember his actions.
Warwick District Court Judge Leanne Clare lashed the excuse.
But, in a shocking twist, Judge Clare sentenced the offender to just two and a half years’ probation and ordered him to complete 80 hours of community service saying, “Every time you do it I want you to remember this is punishment for what you did to this little girl.”
In a further disgrace, the 17-year-old had no conviction recorded for his sickening crimes.
Ray Hadley has called the judgement an outrage.
“He’s a paedophile, a child rapist and no conviction was recorded and because he’s under 18 he can’t be named.
“If there’s not an appeal by the Queensland DPP they stand condemned, as the District Court judge stands condemned.”
