A teenager accused of dousing another boy with petrol then setting him alight has been found guilty causing grievous bodily harm with intent.
The 16-year-old victim, who is now 17, was doused with petrol at the accused’s 17th birthday party in August last year.
The accused had told the court the victim was held down for five seconds after the fuel was lit in a birthday party prank gone wrong.
