The assault happened last September on the playing field of Clarence Sansom Junior High in the 5800 block of 24th Avenue N.E. while friends stood nearby.

The two met on the social networking site Nexopia — where the girl said she was 14 — a week before the attack. They agreed to meet in the school field.

The boy told the court he "felt bad" about what he did.

In an agreed statement of facts signed by the Crown and defence lawyers, the girl was described as "falling down drunk", having consumed nearly an entire 26-ounce bottle of vodka.

She said she has no recollection of the attack, but that she never intended to have sex with the boy because "she didn't really know him and he wasn't very attractive."

An employee inside the school videotaped the aftermath of the attack.

The boy was also charged with breaching his bail conditions for contacting one of his friends who witnessed the attack, drinking alcohol and smoking pot during a party at his house last November.
