A 12-year-old boy who raped a young child will be sentenced after failing to convince a court he was wrongly convicted.
The boy - who cannot be named - was found guilty of rape and attempted rape at the end of a judge-only trial in the Children's Court at Townsville earlier this year.
During the trial, the court was told the boy raped a four-year-old boy in May 2007, and tried to rape his own three-year-old brother a short time later.

I'll clarify my opinion, Donnie. I'm not a fan of state sanctioned execution.
I was asking some questions, particularly referring to some of the ideas that people had towards pedophiles in the other thread.
I don't think that a 12 year-old rapist should be executed. Some others might, they've stated as much in the other thread.
Without knowing the details of the case, it's probably speculative to decide what should be done with him. If he was my 12 year-old son, then I'd be very concerned about his future... this kid has a screwed up moral compass.

I can't believe anyone would even entertain the thought of executing a 12 year old child. That is beyond ignorant, it's completely inhumane. He's a child, who probably has a tough life, scare the # out of him and make sure he understand what he did was wrong. If there was anyone disciplining him this never would have happened to begin with, let alone TWICE.

There is a difference between a 12 year old child and an adult. The child needs therapy, the adult needs to be put away for life.
Just my thoughts,
Without knowing the details of the case, it's probably speculative to decide what should be done with him.
I wouldn't call him a rapist.
