51 year old, John Mason, has avoided jail for the 2nd time for assaulting a 2 year old boy.
Mason was 14 at the time when he attacked the 2 year old boy.
Mason was traumatised by what he did and said it was a momentary and impulsive offence.
The offence was said to be the “modern equivalent” of oral rape.
The impact on the victim has been long-standing, and has been haunted by the memory.
