So at 14yrs old you don't think that one knows that raping an 8yr old is illegal and is criminal? Come on, this day and age kids that age know more then most adults half the time. I would say he knew the severity of his actions. IMO rape, murder (knowingly planning, not accidental of course) are crimes that any teenager should get tried as an adult. Depending on the cicumstances.

Example: a 14-15yr old kid goes to school, brings a gun and guns down a fellow student. He knowingly did it, planned it and don't even try and tell he didn't know the severity of those actions.
