So, what about this kid's home background?
A boy of 13 who overpowered a woman then raped her in front of his two friends will spend just three years locked away for his crimes.And any mention of his home life?
Balal Khan - thought to be one of the youngest convicted rapists in Britain - targeted the 20-year-old as she walked home.
He subjected her to a severe beating then screamed at her 'Do what I say or I'll kill you', before putting her through the ordeal of a terrifying sex attack.
Then he stole her bag and phone and even took a call from his victim's boyfriend to whom he bragged about what he had done.
Zip. Nada. Nothing. In fact, for all the mention they get, this kid might have no parents...
Why the discrepancy?
