A teenage boy who intentionally touched a girl under the age of 13, in Uxbridge , has been spared jail.
Between June and July 2014, the male under 18 intentionally touched a girl under the age of 13, contrary to the Sexual Offences Act 2003, at an address in Uxbridge.
The teen was one of three males charged by police with the rape of the same girl aged under 13, on January 14 this year.
The 17-year-old then entered a guilty plea to a lesser charge of intentionally touching a girl under the age of 13 on February 18.
As part of the Youth Rehabilitation Order, handed down by District Judge Wright, the youth will have to abide by a curfew for six months.
He will not be able to leave his Southall address between the hours of 7pm and 7am and will be electronically monitored.
The youth will be allocated a 'responsible officer' and will have to adhere to a programme requirement, as directed by that officer for 182 days.
The 17-year-old was made to pay a £15 victim surcharge, but did not have to pay compensation or costs as he had limited means.
Two to face trial for raping the same victim
Two men are currently awaiting trial after pleading not guilty to raping the same victim, at different times and locations, in the Uxbridge area between March and July 2014.
