A man who digitally raped a 14-year-old schoolgirl on a bus while a fellow student filmed the attack has walked free from court with a suspended sentence.

In April 2013, the teenage girl was sitting at the rear of the bus in Brisbane, Queensland, with other students when a 13-year-old male touched her breast, The Courier Mail reported.

Erick Osguedo, now 21, then put his hand under her skirt and digitally raped the girl from the seat in front while another student allegedly filmed 30 seconds of the assault on a mobile phone.

The footage no longer exists.  

The Brisbane District Court heard Osguedo, now 21, believed the teenager consented to the assault, even though she tried to fight him off when he placed his hand up her skirt.

He was handed a 12-month suspended sentence and Judge Brad Farr described the attack as 'brazen'.

The student, now 16, who placed his hand on the teenager's breast also pleaded guilty to indecent treatment of a child and received a six-month supervision order.

Crown prosecutor Matthew Hynes said the girl was laughing nervously as she tried to slap the boy's hand away.

Her victim impact statement said the teenager, now 17, has become a recluse and self-harmed twice, according to the newspaper.
