Brisbane Student Charged With Rape Of Two Sisters

Brisbane, AU -- A Year 12 student from an exclusive Brisbane private school has been charged with sex offences against a girl, 16, and the rape of her 10-year-old sister. The student, 18, allegedly committed the offences in the girls' home between 2004 and this year.

A police investigation was triggered when school staff allegedly found he had sent the older sister pornographic emails. The emails, which contained images of nude women, where allegedly sent from his school computer to the 16-year-old school computer. The sisters attend state schools.

It is understood the young man had been in a relationship with the older girl for some time. The pair apparently met at school functions. However, the alleged offences against the 10-year-old occurred during the past year. Police arrested the student in a park in Brisbane's west suburbs.

He appeared in the Brisbane Magistrate's Court on three charges of unlawful carnal knowledge and two counts of sodomy in relation to the 16-year-old girl. As the young man has been charged with an indictable offence, police are also able to take a DNA sample. The victims and the student cannot be identified under Queensland laws relating to sex offences.
