A SCHOOLBOY found guilty of sexually touching a two-year-old girl has been spared prison, but was warned by a judge to stay out of trouble.

The 12-year-old boy, who was living in Sunderland at the time, denied the offence, but was found guilty after a trial at Sunderland Youth Court last month.

During the trial, court heard that the youngster, who was 11 at the time and cannot be named for legal reasons, put his hand between the toddler’s legs when she was not wearing any underwear, last Christmas Eve.
