To those on this thread making excuses for him, such as exposure to porn or having been abused himself, I can't help but chime in. No matter how old he was, there is NO excuse for rape. Ever. Especially the rape of someone so young.
In the movie Hounddog [link to www.imdb.com] a girl is raped by a boy not much older than her, maybe 15 at the most. It's pretty disturbing. The movie in its entirety is beautiful and inspiring, but this scene is just pure hell. I can't even watch it. However, if you wish to see it, you can find the entire movie on the tube. But I warn you, it is disturbing.
My point is, Dakota Fanning's character in Hounddog was 12 years old. 4 years old is MUCH younger and rape is even MORE traumatizing for a child of this age, in so many ways. The damage this boy has done will echo throughout this poor girl's whole life, and even if he didn't understand the magnitude of what he was doing, he deserves to be punished. It's like when a child tries to kill his pet cat, you spank him, because life and death are serious lines you don't want your child to cross, and he needs to learn that it's not okay to kill. Well, this is the same. Except that in this case, killing the girl would have actually been merciful compared to raping her. Now she'll live her whole life running from the past, and looking over her shoulder for him everywhere she goes.
I realize that not all the information has been released, and we don't know if he raped her or not, but if he did, he deserves life in prison. Not only for punishment, but most importantly so that the girl can have some small chance of feeling safe again. That is all.
