The boy, whose name has not been released, told police he and his friend were watching porn and he "decided to try it out"

He told police he selected his sister because she was younger and “couldn’t remember stuff.” He is free on bail and living with family while he awaits sentencing.

A detective told the court that "this is one of those tragic sexual experimentation cases"

"This is going to completely destabilise this little girl's life," Fiona Elvines, of the Rape Crisis Charity, told the Telegraph. She said her organization saw a similar case in November.

“When children see porn, they have no context for what it is used for," she says.

The case highlights how easy it is to access porn from just about anywhere. According to the The Lancashire Telegraph:

"Blackburn MP Jack Straw said it was the responsibility of Internet service providers to make sure children could not access sexually-explicit content."

"This case is breathtakingly horrible. It is a horrifying crime which underlines how porn is too readily available to juveniles. I hope that the Internet service providers recognise that they have greater responsibilities for controlling access to porn.”

It is not known whether or not parental settings were in place on either the console itself or the family's IP address

While the 360 doesn't have any dedicated apps devoted solely to porn access, there's a browser that can easily take users to the infinite amount of porn that exists on the Internet. There's also a DVD drive that is perfectly capable of playing porn films straight from the disc drive.
