A teenager has pleaded guilty in a retrial to raping a 10-year-old girl in Exmouth.
The attack happened in the Marley Road area on Thursday 4 October 2018.
Following an initial police investigation, the boy who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to a number of lesser charges in March 2018.
Today (July 22) on the first day of a retrial in relation to the more serious rape charge, the suspect changed his plea to guilty.
The 17-year-old will remain in custody until sentencing in November.
