PARIS - A court in Versailles, near Paris, has charged an 11-year-old boy and his 12-year-old friend with raping the older boy's 10-year-old sister, filming the scene on a cell phone and showing it to friends, the website of the weekly Le Point reported on Friday.

According to a judicial source cited in the report, on 9 May the 11-year-old invited his friend and his sister to his home where they watched a pornographic film. They then decided to re-enact the movie's scenes with the girl.

The boys filmed their sexual activities and then replayed the scenes for a week to about 100 students at their school via their cell phone. The filmed scenes were discovered by police officers who were on a pedagogic visit to the boys' school.

"It is clear that we are not dealing with perverts," the judicial source told Le Point. "It is more a case of ... a lack of education in a more or less well-to-do environment."

Because the boys are under 13 years of age, they can not be sentenced like adults, but can at most be given educational sanctions.

    What does well-to-do have to do with it? Is this type of behaviour less shocking because the parents have money? Do they have less of a responsibility to educate their children properly because their well-to-do? And finally,where did the porn film come from? It just goes to show the hypocrisy in today's society...Parents must discuss sexuality with their children and not expect them to just "be good"!
