A 16-year-old schoolboy has appeared at the youth court in Londonderry charged with raping a girl aged 12 last year.
The youth, who cannot be identified because of his age, is alleged to have committed the offence last October 28.
A police officer told the district judge he believed he could connect the youth to the charge.
The case was adjourned until June 20 and the youth was released on continuing bail until that date. As part of his bail conditions, the youth was ordered not to have any contact whatsoever with the schoolgirl.
