A RAPIST aged 16 was sentenced to long walks instead of being caged.

The boy was just 14 when he sexually assaulted a family member and “shattered” their life, a court heard.

The teen, of Denbighshire, North Wales, who admitted rape, was given a 12-month referral order likely to include socially-distanced walks with a social worker.

District Judge Gwyn Jones reportedly said: "You were 14 at the time when these offences came about.

"If you were over 18 then the starting point as to the length of sentence is likely to be in double figures.

“You and others in the family have had adverse childhood experiences and that’s something that has no doubt affected you.

"There has been evidence of neglect.”
