He was only 14 years old at the time of the abuse.
Bedfordshire Police had previously investigated the case at the time but were kicked out of court at the first hearing due to lack of evidence.
Carson Grimes was acquitted in one case in 2008.
Forensic evidence pointed to the attack, but he claimed it was consensual.
Carson Grimes was arrested again in February 2018 thanks to the new testimony.
Detective Sergeant Rachael Foy later discovered that Carson Grimes prepared up to 30 potential victims and invited them to his home.

In addition, 11 cases of indecent assault and 6 cases of indecency with a child were recorded.
