In the UK, a predatory woman who groomed and performed a sex act on a boy said that he cannot wait until her victim turns 18.
Nicola Holton, 36, performed sexual acts on a 15-year-old boy on two separate occasions after talking to him online, court documents read.
Holton the boy and telling him that she needed help with a game her son was playing. She then lured him to her house by inviting him to watch a movie and made him kiss her and put her hand down in his trousers.
Holton performed oral sex on the boy and also used her hands to perform another sexual act on another incident, the court said.
On Friday, Worcester Crown Court charged Holton with four years of prison time.
Holton admitted to two counts of sexual activity with a child and one of sexual communication with a child.
According to Prosecutor Caroline Harris, the victim had said he “wanted it to stop and then he would just be a normal child”.
Harris said Holton “put her hand inside his trousers” and performed two sex acts on him with her hand and her mouth. The accused also sent him messages “suggesting she was pleasuring herself”.
The boy said he deleted those messages because he did not want to see them.
On another occasion, the boy said that Holton kissed him again and used her hands to perform a sexual act.
“He felt he could not say anything about what happened because he was afraid he would get into trouble,” the prosecutor said. “He was asking the officer what his punishment might be for what had happened.”
“It was noted by the officer that he was in tears at various stages, showing the distress that has been caused.”
To make matters worse, Holton even told the victim that “she could not wait until 2023 when he would be 18” and that she had to keep on reminding herself that “he was only 15”.
“He does recall feeling pressured to do as he did,” Harris said.
According to the boy’s mother, her son had struggled to sleep and had become reluctant to be seen out of the house and felt he would be looked at, when she asked him what happened the boy only said that “he will be judged.”
“I noticed a real change in him, he was coming in from school and becoming immediately angry,” the mother of the victim said. “He had turned into someone I did not recognize at all.”
Meanwhile, defense attorney Fiona Elder said Holton had “an inability to cope on her own” after a controlling relationship with her ex-husband.
But the court judge did not believe the defendant’s reason.
“You seduced him, kissing him, taking him into your bedroom in your flat then performing oral sex upon him,” Judge Nicolas Cartwright said. “You should have known a good deal better in any event given that you were working in childcare and have obtained a diploma.”
“You were very well aware of how serious this offending was,” he added.
Judge Cartwright also noted, “you have two boys of your own and you could have been under no illusions just how serious your actions were.”
Holton is expected to serve half of the custodial sentence in custody and half on license in the community.
A restraining order and a sexual harm prevention order were also issued.
