Lynn Walls, 42, obtained the juvenile's number through the interactive World of Warcraft site before she began to rely on him emotionally and falsely claimed to him that she had breast cancer. Newcastle Crown Court heard her behaviour had caused lasting damage to the schoolboy became withdrawn, guilty, abusive and had suicidal thoughts.

Walls, who is plump, invented a "thin, attractive and blonde" character to chat online with teenager from London who told her his age. Penny Moreland, prosecuting, said Walls sent texts which were "crude and explicit in the extreme", inviting the boy to commit sexual acts and have sex with her.

In others, Walls confided childhood and other problems and confessed she loved him. Walls, from Penshaw, Sunderland, who had a son herself, was a primary school teacher in County Durham at the time and of previous good character.

Nick Peacock, defending, said she had been married for 20 years until she discovered her husband was having an affair. She became a recluse and spent hours playing World of Warcraft, described in court as highly addictive, in which players create virtual characters. He said she designed someone who was thin, attractive and blonde and had told police: "That character was everything I was not." The case had "destroyed her days and haunted her nights" and she accepted she was virtually unemployable.

Jailing her, Judge Richard Lowden also banned her from working with children for life, and put her on the Sex Offenders' Register for 10 years. He told Walls: "It is not just the grossly inappropriate sexual conduct of the message that has done the damage, but to my mind, more damaging was the emotional burden that you put upon that boy, so that in the end he felt responsible for you."

Boy, 15, testifies he had sex with godmother

Teen says ex-teacher gave him gifts, alcohol
By Ray Huard Union-Tribune Staff Writer

SOUTH COUNTY COURTS — A 15-year-old boy told a judge yesterday that his former teacher, who is also his godmother, demanded that he have sex with her over a four-year period in exchange for gifts, alcohol and other favors.

He said Carmina Erica Lopez had sex with him in her car, on a table in her classroom, in her bedroom, in her toddler's bedroom and in a guest room of her home.

"If I wanted a ride home or if I wanted something, then I'd have to have sex with her to get it," the boy testified in Chula Vista Superior Court. He said Lopez gave him many gifts, including a dirt bike motorcycle, boots and a radio. He said she also gave him money to buy marijuana and once bought beer for him. In all, the boy said he had sex with Lopez 30 or 40 times from 2004 to 2008.

When he threatened to report her, Lopez, the mother of a 4-year-old son, threatened suicide, the boy testified. "I remember her telling me that if I told, she was going to kill herself and she was going to kill her son," the boy testified.

Lopez, 33, must stand trial on 10 felony charges of molesting the boy and one charge of furnishing marijuana to a minor, Judge H. Ronald Domnitz ruled. He ordered a May 18 hearing to set a trial date. If convicted of all charges, Lopez faces a maximum of 19 years and four months in prison, Deputy District Attorney Leonard Trinh said outside the courtroom.

Lopez, who lives in Mission Hills, is on paid leave from her job as a fifth-grade teacher at Sunnyslope Elementary School in Palm City pending the outcome of the case. She began teaching in the South Bay Union School District in 2004 at Oneonta Elementary School, transferred to Nestor Elementary School later that year and to Sunnyslope in 2005.

The boy said he knew Lopez from the time he was in first grade, and his family became close to her over several years. "She became my godmother; she started coming to family parties," the boy testified. The boy testified that his first sexual encounter with Lopez happened in her car when he was 11 or 12 years old and she was his sixth-grade teacher at Nestor.

"She would, like, fondle me," the boy testified. "She pulled down my pants and asked me if I liked it." The boy said Lopez behaved similarly twice in her Nestor classroom after school.

Under questioning by defense lawyer Robert Boyce, the boy acknowledged that he initially told investigators that Lopez had never touched him inappropriately but he said he did that to cover up for her. At the time, the boy said he was trying to sort out his feelings about what had happened. He also said he had taken advantage of Lopez's desire for sex to get things he wanted.

The boy said he ended the relationship when Lopez told him she wanted to marry him and have children with him. The last time he had sex with Lopez was in 2008 in her car near his aunt's home when he asked her to buy beer for him and his friends, the boy said.

"She said, 'Yeah, if you're willing to have sex with me,' " the boy testified.

Social worker accused of attempting to trade foster home placement for sex

By LEVI PULKKINEN
11 June 2009

Prosecutors have filed sex crime charges against a social worker accused of offering to place a then 13-year-old girl in a foster home of her choice in exchange for sex.

Indian Child Welfare caseworker Robert Cline, 48, was charged earlier this month with a single count of immoral communication with a minor, a felony sex crime.

King County sheriff's detectives were first alerted to the allegations in 2007, when they received a referral from child protective services, according to police statements filed with the court.

At the time, Cline denied any wrongdoing. He told detectives the girl was angry with him because he'd asked her about rumors that she'd joined a gang, and alleged that the girl had fabricated a report because he had removed her from her mother's home.

Unable to reach the girl, detectives suspended the case until another Indian Child Welfare caseworker informed them the girl was now willing to discuss the alleged incident.

According to detectives' statement, the girl became upset while discussing the incident during a January interview. She told detectives she was meeting with Cline at his office to discuss where she would live while in foster care when he asked her "what she would do for him" if he allowed her to live at a friend's home.

Cline went on to demand the girl have sex with him, prosecutors say. After being rebuffed, they say Cline drove her home.

Prosecutors say he touched her inappropriately during the trip, then threatened to harm her.

"She said Robert (Cline) told her not to tell anyone about what happened, and said 'You will be hurt and you will regret it,'" Detective Belinda Ferguson said in court documents.

Cline is scheduled to enter a plea to the charge on June 18 in King County Superior Court. He has not been jailed in the case.

Oldest boy in assault of girl to be tried as adult
by Amanda Lee Myers
July 24, 2009

Authorities said Thursday that four boys ages 9 to 14 took turns raping an 8-year-old girl behind a shed for more than 10 minutes in what Phoenix police are calling one of the most horrific cases they've ever seen.

The outrage over the allegations intensified after police said the girl's parents criticized her after the attack and blamed her for bringing shame on the family. "The father told the caseworker and an officer in her presence that he didn't want her back. He said, 'Take her, I don't want her,' " police Sgt. Andy Hill said.

The 14-year-old boy was charged Wednesday as an adult with two counts of sexual assault and kidnapping, the Maricopa County Attorney's Office said. He appeared in court Thursday and is being held without bond. The other boys - ages 9, 10, and 13 - were charged as juveniles with sexual assault. The 10- and 13-year-old boys also were charged with kidnapping, the office said Thursday.

Phoenix investigators said the boys lured the girl to an empty shed July 16 under the pretense of offering her gum. The boys held the girl down while they took turns assaulting her, police said. "She was brutally sexually assaulted for a period of about 10 to 15 minutes," Hill said.

Officers responding to an emergency call reporting hysterical screams found the girl partially clothed and the boys running from the scene. "This is a deeply disturbing case that has gripped our community," Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas said Thursday. "Our office will seek justice for the young victim in this heartrending situation."

Hill cited the family's background as the reason the family shunned the girl. All five children are refugees from the West African nation of Liberia. In some parts of Africa, women often are blamed for being raped for enticing men or simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Girls who are raped are often shunned by their families.

"It's a shame-based culture, so the crime is not as important as protecting the family name and the name of the community," said Tony Weedor, a Liberian refugee in Littleton, Colo., and co-founder of the CenterPoint International Foundation, which helps Liberians resettle in the U.S. "I just feel so sorry for this little girl. Some of these people will not care about the trauma she's going through - they're more concerned about the shame she brought on the family."

Ali Keita, a Liberian refugee and president of the Arizona Mandingo Association, works with refugees to ease their integration into U.S. society. Keita said that Liberian families may question why sexual-assault victims were in a situation that left them open for attack but that the initial response likely stems from disappointment and frustration with the family's circumstances. "(As a parent), you feel like you've failed . . . to protect them," Keita said.

In recent years, Liberia has made efforts to combat rape under the leadership of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who has sought to dispel the stigma associated with sexual assault by publicly acknowledging that she was herself the victim of attempted rape during the country's civil war.

The girl's healing process will be particularly difficult, said Paul Penzone of Childhelp, which aids young victims of crime. Authorities said the victim was in the care of Child Protective Services. "These four boys used what was a ploy to entice her to a place where they could take advantage of her almost like a pack of wolves," he said. "And what's so disturbing beyond the initial crime is the fact that a child needs to have somewhere to feel safe, and you would think that would be in a home with her own family," not in state custody, Penzone said.

Girl shunned by family after rape sparks outcry
July 24, 2009
By JONATHAN J. COOPER and TERRY TANG
Associated Press Writers

PHOENIX (AP) - Lured by promises of chewing gum then allegedly raped in a shed by four boys barely older than her, an 8-year-old Liberian girl is now in foster care and living with strangers after being shunned by her family.

The alleged sexual assault in Phoenix and reaction by her family have sparked an international outcry, reaching all the way to the president of Liberia, the home country of the girl's family and the four young suspects.

"I think that family is wrong. They should help that child who has been traumatized and they should make sure that they work with the U.S. law authorities to see what can be done about the other young boys who have committed this offense," Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf told CNN. "Not only should they abide by the law, but they too need serious counseling because clearly they are doing something, something that is no longer acceptable in our society here."

Sirleaf has tried to combat rape in recent years, seeking to dispel stigmas by publicly acknowledging that she was herself the victim of attempted rape during the country's civil war.

But experts who study the developing world say the parents' reaction highlights the struggles of many women around the globe. "They're always being blamed for everything," said Monica Westin, founder of World of Hope International, which promotes human rights. "It's always the girl's fault. There's no gender equality." Westin said West African refugees often keep in touch with friends and relatives back home and try to maintain their culture. Many have grown up uneducated and find it hard to change their customs. "Sometimes it's like they never left the village," she said. "They have this extended family, they stick together."

A 14-year-old boy was charged Wednesday as an adult with two counts of sexual assault and kidnapping, the Maricopa County Attorney's Office said. He appeared in court Thursday and was being held without bond. A public defender assigned to represent him did not immediately respond to a message left Friday afternoon. The other boys—ages 9, 10, and 13—were charged as juveniles with sexual assault. The 10- and 13-year-old boys also were charged with kidnapping, the office said Thursday.

Police say the girl's father told a police officer and a Child Protective Services worker that he doesn't want her anymore.

But Slueue Goe, who is from Liberia and identified himself as the uncle of the 9- and 10-year-old suspects, said he knows the girl's parents and doesn't believe allegations that they blamed or shunned their daughter. He denied that his nephews are capable of sexual assault, and said his country does not have a rape problem. "We are from West Africa. We are well-behaved people. We are trained people. It is our culture to respect," Goe said.

The children come from a country torn by a civil war that brought decades of violence and exposed generations of children to brutality before its end in 2003.

"What you're seeing here is the very long legacy and reach of the violence that took over Liberia for 70 years," said Pamela Scully, a professor of women's studies and African studies at Emory University in Atlanta. "When you're dealing with children this young, they're mimicking actions they've seen, they've heard about, they've grown up with."

President Sirleaf said she would ask Liberian Ambassador Milton Barnes to work with the family and Phoenix authorities to ensure the girl's protection. The Liberian Embassy in Washington did not return calls from The Associated Press. Most residents of the sprawling complex where the rape allegedly occurred were tightlipped when asked about the incident.

Ben Haines, who lives across the street from the building, said he was disturbed that the 8-year-old girl's parents supposedly blamed the assault on her. "That just sounds so wrong. She's barely old enough to know about that," Haines said.

Teenagers 'filmed sex act fearing Large Hadron Collider doomsday'
2 September 2009

HIGH school students allegedly filmed sex acts while believing that the Large Hadron Collider was about to end the world.

At least three teenagers from a Brisbane state high school are being investigated by police for allegedly filming sex acts on a mobile phone and distributing it to other students, the Courier-Mail reports. Two students aged between 13 and 15 performed the sex acts in the toilets during school hours several months ago.

The incident occurred after the launch of the particle accelerator ring, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which some dubbed a "doomsday device", sources told The Courier-Mail. It is understood the girl wanted to lose her virginity to the boy - believing that the world was about to end. Another student filmed the sex acts on his mobile phone without the girl's knowledge and then circulated it around the school and the wider community via bluetooth.

Police have warned those responsible for recording and distributing the images could be charged with producing child pornography, although that was unlikely given the age of the students.

Although the NSW government has mounted an awareness campaign about the dangers of filming and circulating explicit images, the Queensland government is yet to act on the issue. But police say it is not the first time they have investigated incidents involving students producing sex videos, which are then circulated via text or over the internet.

An Education Queensland spokesman said it could not comment on the incident. The department had raised problems with the inappropriate use of technology with parents through school newsletters, the spokesman said. "When principals become aware that these devices have been used to distribute unauthorised images or images of violence, appropriate disciplinary action is taken in accordance with the school's Responsible Behaviour Plan," the spokesman said.

Edlington horror: boys aged 10 and 12 admit torturing children
Andrew Norfolk

Two brothers aged 10 and 12 who tortured and sexually humiliated two boys were spared trial for attempted murder yesterday when prosecutors decided to accept their guilty pleas to lesser charges.

The brothers pleaded guilty to robbing, sexually abusing and intentionally causing grievous bodily harm to their victims, aged 9 and 11, during a pre-planned attack of extreme, sadistic violence that has drawn parallels with the murder of James Bulger and to assaulting another boy a week earlier. The Crown Prosecution Service said that it had accepted the lesser charges to save the victims from having to relive their ordeal in court and said that the brothers would still face the same maximum term of life imprisonment.

The attack happened in April, 25 days after the brothers had been taken into care and placed with a foster family in the mining village of Edlington, South Yorkshire.

The nine-year-old victim raised the alarm after being found wandering the streets barefoot and dazed and covered in mud and blood. His 11-year-old friend was found a short time later at the foot of a steep ravine. He was unconscious, naked from the waist down and half-submerged in water. He had been left for dead after a sink was smashed down on his head.

The court heard that the younger boy had tried to kill himself on the instructions of his attackers by shoving a sharpened stick down his throat after having the same stick driven into his arm and a lit cigarette pushed into the wound. The brothers had burnt his ears and eyelids.

The families of the victims were in Sheffield Crown Court yesterday to hear the guilty pleas. The defendants, both in shirts and ties, grinned occasionally at their social workers and solicitors during the two-hour hearing. Their parents were not present.

On the day of the attack the brothers had been due to attend a police station to be questioned about an assault on an 11-year-old boy a week earlier. His mother had reported the incident immediately. The police have been criticised for not acting more urgently.

Doncaster social services had had extensive contact with the brothers over many years. It said that a serious case review was under way and refused to comment further.

Boy admits raping nine-year-old
8 September 2009

A 12-year-old schoolboy has admitted a charge that he raped a nine-year-old boy.

The defendant, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was 11 at the time of the attack in June. The hearing, at Newcastle Crown Court, which was sitting as a youth court, was adjourned to allow reports to be prepared.

He was remanded in custody and will next appear before the court for sentencing on 23 October.

Three brothers arrested over sadistic attack on boys

(SWNS) Hengrove Park in Bristol where three boys were sexually assaulted
Simon de Bruxelles

Three brothers aged 8, 11 and 12 and a friend aged 12 have been questioned by police investigating an alleged sexual assault on three young boys in a Bristol park.

The three older boys were arrested and bailed but the youngest child was allowed to go without further action because he is below the age of criminal responsibility. The incident, in which at least one of the victims was allegedly forced to strip and smeared with dog excrement while his friends were ordered to perform indecent acts on him, may have been inspired by an attack by two boys near Doncaster this year.

The father of one of the three male victims, who were all ten years old, told The Sun: "I think it was a copycat attack." He said that his son had been badly affected by the incident. "My lad was happy and now he is withdrawn. What has happened is unforgivable."

The brothers and their friend are said to have threatened to mutilate the younger boys" genitals unless they did as they were told. It is alleged that the boys were made to drink urine and that the naked boy was forced to lick dog excrement that had been smeared on his face.

The brothers were arrested and bailed by police after the attack, which happened in Hengrove Park on Saturday afternoon. A spokesman for Avon & Somerset Police said: "We can confirm that three youths, aged 11, 12, and 12, have been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and have been bailed pending further inquiries. A fourth youth was detained but then released.

"Three boys of primary school age were allegedly assaulted. This must have been very distressing for the victims involved. The park would have been very busy on Saturday afternoon and we are asking for witnesses to come forward to help with our inquiries."

Residents said that the park where the alleged attack took place was a no-go area plagued by yobs and joyriders.Four makeshift goalposts made from discarded lampposts are the only sign that the 190-acre (77-hectare) piece of land is used by the community.

Jenny Terry, 32, who was out walking her dog, said: "I will only use the park in daylight but it seems that even that isn"t safe any more. The park lends itself to this sort of antisocial behaviour due to the number of secluded wooded areas. There are often youngsters hanging around here."

One resident, whose house overlooks the park, said: "During the summer, when they are all off school, it can get pretty hectic. At night there are motorbikes and cars, which somehow get in and I"ve seen the council carting off burnt-out cars before. I"ve lived here for around ten years and in that time I think things have definitely got worse. Kids are cheekier than ever at an even younger age. A few years ago I would have told them to push off but you just don"t risk it these days."

Another resident said: "It"s more of a wasteland than a park and the whole place is a bit of a joke. I"m horrified, but looking at some of the behaviour around here I"m sad to say it"s not that much of a surprise."

Hengrove, which is home to about 11,900 people, is four miles from Bristol city centre and is one of the city"s most deprived suburbs. A survey in 2005 revealed that the number of offenders per 1,000 population was three times higher than in any other ward in the city. It also found that there were more incidents of domestic violence and more children on the child protection register in Hengrove than any other area of Bristol.

Year 1 and Year 2 boys allegedly sexually assaulted classmates in Queensland school
September 21, 2009

SHOCKING sex assault allegations against Year 1 and Year 2 boys have caused worried parents to pull children out of a Brisbane primary school.

The Courier-Mail reports at least three Year 1 and Year 2 boys were alleged to have sexually assaulted their classmates in separate incidents at the school on the city's northern outskirts since June. One girl was pulled out of the school after she was allegedly assaulted, with another Year 1 student, by two boys in the school toilets on June 16.

The girls' underwear was removed by the Year 1 boys, who then allegedly performed sex acts on the girls. Police have confirmed they investigated an incident in June but have refused to say whether the boys were cautioned.

Children under the age of 10 are unable to be charged.

Two other girls were allegedly sexually assaulted last week. A Year 2 boy is said to have grabbed a girl from behind and put his hand up her dress while in a separate incident, another Year 1 girl was touched inappropriately by Year 1 boys while in line.

Parents of one of the girls told the Courier-Mail they reported the matter to police ''not for revenge'', but so the boy might realise the seriousness of the situation and also to bring about change at the school. They said they were unhappy with the way the school dealt with it, with the boy returning to class the next day without his teacher being told about the incident. It was left to the victim's mother to warn the teacher that the boy should be monitored.

The parents said police were now going to address the entire school on appropriate behaviour and praised the officers and education officials for their handling of the situation. They also said the school had many great teachers who did a fantastic job.

An Education Queensland spokesman confirmed ''an alleged child protection issue'' at a state school in the Brisbane area had been referred to police and the Department of Child Safety ''as a matter of urgency in June''.

Is it me or does this sound like an over-reaction to what constitutes normal "sexual" exploration behaviour of 8 year olds?

When I was that age we played "doctor" quite a lot and the girls were perfectly happy to show me theirs if I showed them mine. I don't remember anyone forcing anyone else but one little bitch did rat us out after I didn't want to be her "boyfriend" as I already was for a girl she hated. Which was of course why she told.

"Touching inappropriately" at that age?? Sure, maybe it is, but I wouldn't go as far as call it a "sexual assault". That's way over the top, IMO.

Yes, the kids should be told not to touch other people's privates, I think that is also a normal part of learning respect for others. Boundaries of privacy need to be taught, that's why they are in school, to learn what is acceptable and what is not. But let's not move "inappropriate touching" into the realm of sexual assault, please. Our kids are over-sexualised enough as it is without giving them lifetime traumas about sexuality from an early age.

Kids now sex predators
by Gemma Jones, Political Reporter
October 19, 2009

CHILDREN are committing sexual assaults in alarming numbers, with five times more attacks last year than there were five years ago.

And many of the attacks are now in the most serious class of sex offending, in which children did not register a few years ago.

In cases of 10 to 18-year-olds reported last year were children committing aggravated sexual assault with a weapon, inciting a victim under the age of 10 to commit an indecent act, aggravated sexual intercourse with a child aged between 10 and 14 and persistent sexual abuse of a child.

Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research figures show that five years ago there were 13 sexual assaults committed by children but last year there were 68.

University of South Australia Child development expert Professor Freda Briggs last week delivered a frightening lecture to the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists. She said the Federal Government knew of the danger of children sexually abusing other children in 2003 but she said few parents were aware of the danger. "Five-year-olds just starting school were at risk of violent abuse by older children in school toilets," Professor Briggs said.

"When we talk about child sex offenders, most people assume we are referring to deviant adults. Few realise that children of all ages are at risk of rape and sexual assault by other children, even in junior schools."

The statistics also show that last year 14 children committed aggravated indecent assaults on victims younger than 16 and nine children committed assaults with acts of indecency. Five years ago there were no child offenders in those categories. Cases in which children have indecently assaulted a child aged under 10 have also doubled from three in 2004 to seven last year.

Professor Briggs blasted schools and said that the attacks were often written off as typical childhood bad behaviour without the victim being recognised or removed from a dangerous situation.

"Schools continue to push these problems under the carpet," she said. "Boys are abused in school toilets, in classrooms when teachers are absent, in bedrooms at home and in boarding schools, at camps, clubs and sports changing rooms. In addition, sexual abuse is now widely used in SMS and email bullying by primary school students."

Pre-teen boy held for rape attempt

27 November 2009
Online: http://www.thelocal.se/23516/20091127/

A 12-year-old boy attacked and tried to rape a 19-year-old woman in Borås in southern Sweden on Thursday evening. Police were able to detain the boy after the intervention of a neighbour.

The 19-year-old woman was taken to hospital and remained there overnight.

The boy is suspected of attempted rape. The social services and the boy's parents were in attendance when the boy was interviewed by police on Thursday evening.

The attack occurred at around 7pm. The woman and the boy were on the same bus and the boy is alleged to have been sexually harassing the woman prior to the attack, according to local newspaper Borås Tidning. The boy got off the bus at the next bus stop after the woman and walked back to continue his harassment of her. He then proceeded to punch her in the face and grab her, after which he dragged her trousers to her knees and stated that he wanted to have sex.

It was at this point that a family in the vicinity heard the woman's cries and came to her rescue. "It was a very timely intervention," Bo Dahleman at Borås police told the newspaper. The attack is the fourth in the area in recent days. The newspaper reports on Friday morning that police suspect another, 13-year-old, boy to be behind the other attacks.

Both boys remain in custody and are being held at a youth detention centre while social services decide what action to take.

A press spokesperson at Borås hospital confirmed on Thursday evening that the woman's injuries are considered to be relatively serious.

Two British boys aged 10 charged with rape of girl
December 16, 2009

LONDON — Two 10-year-old boys have been charged with the rape of an 8-year-old girl in London, British police said on Wednesday.

The two boys are due to appear at Uxbridge Magistrate's Court in west London on Thursday.

"The incident took place in Hayes, in west London, on October 27, that's pretty much all the detail we have," a police spokesman said.

The individuals cannot be named because they are minors.

Edlington brothers jailed for torture of two boys

Young pair who subjected boys to 90-minute attack involving torture and sexual humiliation to serve at least five years

A judge sentenced two young brothers who beat and tortured another pair of boys to indefinite detention today, as the head of child protection services in their home town apologised for the way staff had failed the public in the case.

The brothers, now 11 and 12, carried out "appalling and terrible" assaults on their younger victims after leading them from a playground to waste land in Edlington, South Yorkshire, in April last year, Mr ­Justice Keith told Sheffield crown court.

He told the boys that while he was setting a minimum detention period of five years, the risk they posed to the public and their lack of apparent remorse meant that they were likely to be locked away for considerably longer. "The fact is this was prolonged, sadistic violence for no reason other than that you got a real kick out of hurting and humiliating [the victims]," he said, directly addressing the brothers. "The bottom line for the two of you is that you both pose a serious risk of harm to others. Your crimes are truly exceptional."

Neither boy reacted to the sentence, but relatives of the victims shook their heads. One of the mothers yelled abuse as the brothers were led out of court, banging a glass partition with her fist and sobbing.

Immediately afterwards, the acting head of children's services in Doncaster admitted that the department he took over last year had been "totally broken".

Nick Jarman promised a thorough investigation into why no stronger action was taken against the boys despite a long record of violent attacks by both of them against other children and adults. Giving an unqualified apology for the "admitted failings which led to this terrible incident", Jarman said action would be taken against staff deemed to have mishandled the affair. Only one member of staff had been disciplined so far, he said. Outside court, Temporary Superintendent Ian Bint, of South Yorkshire police, was asked whether the brothers' parents should face a criminal investigation. He said: "It's something we will be looking at … in the light of what has come out in court."

In the most notorious crime committed by British children since James Bulger was murdered in 1993, the brothers targeted their victims apparently at random as they rode their BMX bikes in Edlington on a Saturday morning. They led the victims, then nine and 11, to waste ground and subjected them to a 90-minute ordeal during which they were robbed, beaten, stamped on, struck with bricks and other objects, choked and burned. They also endured a series of humiliations, many of them sexual. The older boy almost died from his injuries. Sheffield crown court heard how the brothers had been placed with foster parents in Edlington less than three weeks before the attacks. They had grown up in nearby Doncaster with a violent, chaotic family life described by one defence barrister as "toxic".

The judge acknowledged the impact of such an upbringing but told the boys they appeared obsessed with controlling others "by domination, degradation and inflicting pain for the purpose of [your] own emotional pleasure". They also showed a "chilling detachment" and lack of remorse, he said. "You will only be released when the authorities are satisfied that the risks which you pose are such that you can safely be released."

A serious case review found that various agencies missed 31 opportunities to intervene with the boys' family. Jarman agreed that children's services staff should have made quicker and more effective use of statutory powers. He said: "Things were not working effectively in Doncaster, multi-service agency work was not effective and neither were children's services." While he defended the decision to place the boys with foster parents in their 60s, he admitted that children's services had not known that the boys' violent and drunken father lived nearby in Edlington.

Jarman was appointed to lead the already much-criticised department three days before the attack, after it was taken over by central government as an emergency measure. "Frankly, valuable though it is, we did not need a serious case review to tell us what was broken, and more importantly what needed to be done," he said, adding that much had been rectified in the following nine months.

The children's secretary, Ed Balls, said that while the brothers had been "deeply damaged by years of abuse" he found the nature of their crime hard to comprehend. He said: "What we've now got to do is make sure that in custody they get the support to try and turn things round for them and we also learn lessons in Doncaster so that in future we don't have a repeat of such a terrible, unusual and horrific case."

The Tory leader, David Cameron, has called on Doncaster council to make public the full case review, not just a summary.
