According to the New York Post, the minor was charged with third degree rape on March 23 and is due to be tried in family court.
A Queens attorney handling youth defense cases has blown the case, claiming it is “physically impossible”.
He said, “Instinctively, it shouldn’t happen to a seven-year-old because I don’t think you can really tell what you’re doing when you’re seven.
“You would have to prove that he actually committed this act physically, which seems almost impossible to me.”
The boy is also reported to be charged as a juvenile offender.
The 43-year-old man was arrested for raping the 12-year-old boy and shooting him in the face.
