Customer Question

What kind of sentence can a 15 year old get for oral rapeif he has had a proven turbulent upbringing

What are the circumstances?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
There is no evidence of this happening apart from her statement and she is also his half sister so they have the same father and he only lived with them for a short period of time she initially states this happened over three years but in court this went down to 5months. He has been found guilty of all counts. However we were not allowed to give any evidence of the kind of person his father is during the trial nor were his mother and sister who raised him for the majority of his life allowed to be involved and this led to him having no defence. Now we the mother and sister are being given the right to apply for mitigating circumstances before he is sentenced as they will take in to account his turbulent upbringing and the fact that he was only 15 at the time of the allegation he is now 20.
