A teen has been ordered to take sex offender counselling after making his young brother perform oral sex on him.

"Having his older bother treat him in that fashion is a serious breach of your duty to be a good brother to him and not to abuse him in that fashion," Judge John Combs told the young offender.

The teen was sentenced on Monday on a count of sexual assault. By law, the youth can’t be identified.

Crown prosecutor Kaley Tschetter said that, in September 2013, the offender’s father contacted Child and Family Services for help dealing with his children who were fighting all the time.

The father also told CFS that his young son had told him that his older half-brother had made him perform oral sex on him.

The boy told police that his brother was babysitting him when he invited him to shower with him.

The 13-year-old boy then asked the six-year-old boy to perform oral sex on him.

When the younger boy refused, the elder brother told him to do it or he wouldn’t stop bothering him.

Tschetter said the offender told authorities that he’d learned about oral sex at school and wanted to know what it felt like.

Defence lawyer Philip Sieklicki said that an adult was supposed to be babysitting the boys at the time of the offence, but they didn’t receive the supervision they should have.

The offender has no prior criminal record, and Combs imposed a one-year conditional discharge with an order that the boy take counselling, including sex offender counselling.

The teen also isn’t allowed to babysit, or be in a position of trust over anyone under 16 years old without permission from CFS.

Court heard that the offender and victim do not live together as the victim no longer lives in Brandon.
