A 50-year-old mum has pleaded guilty to having sexual activity with her own son, 16.

The woman now faces a prison sentence, judge Ian Lawrie QC warned yesterday at Gloucester Crown Court.

She pleaded guilty to three allegations of sexual activity with a boy under 18 between September 1 2017 and January 9 this year.

Two of the offences relate to ‘spanking’ the boy, in a ‘sexual’ way, while the third consisted of ‘being in a situation where he was able to commit a sexual act’.

No further details of the circumstances were given and the mother cannot be named due to legal restrictions.

She will be sentenced on December 10.

Judge Lawrie adjourned the sentence so that an updated psychiatric report could be prepared on the woman.

She has been granted bail until the sentencing hearing.


‘Your offending crosses the custody threshold,’ Judge Lawrie said.
