Ummm.....Take him to the doctor! Several doctors actually. I would have him checked out by a general pediatrician to get referrals to 2 pediatric neurologists, 2 psychologists, and 2 urologists.
First off, the punishment you are administering now is abusive.
Second, if he is 12 years old and still having accidents, something is wrong beyond just being lazy or defiant. He could have a physical, neurological, or mental/emotional condition that is causing the accidents. Emotionally torturing him by putting him in degrading, embarrassing situations isn't going to teach him anything or magically cure any condition he has, and could further emotionally damage him, making the problem far worse than a few shit stained pants.
