Loren Morris, a mother of one, was found guilty of repeatedly having sex with an 8-year-old boy, The Daily Mail reports.
21-year-old Loren was sentenced with two-year prison time for admitting that she had regular sexual intercourse with an 8-year-old boy which lasted until the boy was ten.
Loren Morris was found guilty of sleeping with the boy more than fifty times.
Morris, who is not biologically related to the boy, started having sexual relationship with him when he was 8 and she was 16.
The events were revealed when the boy, now 14, was overheard bragging to his friends in school about having sex with Morris.
Lawyer for Loren, Antonie Mullers stated that his client was not happy with the terms of the sentence, adding that she’s to “immature” to accept the facts of the case.
Mullers added that Morris wishes for the judge to suspend the sentence.
Aside from two years in prison, Loren would also have to register with the Sex Offenders Registry, where her name will be listed for ten years.
The sentence also bans her from seeing and contacting children under 16, which may include her own child.
Many people believe the court’s decision was already lenient enough for Loren, who was convicted of three counts of sexual intercourse with a child under 16. Judge Robert Juckes QC said:
“I make no secret of the fact your case has given me cause for much consideration”
He also considered the fact that Morris willingly stopped having sex with the boy after the former realized that it was “wrong”, expressing his appreciation that the mother pedophile was not “caught and forced to stop”.
The effect on Loren’s baby was also included in the judge’s decision, saying that he is aware of the possible adverse effects the case may have on her child.
However, despite these considerations, judge Juckes emphasized on the gravity of Morris’ behavior.
While waiting for her sentence, Morris was seen outside the courtroom smiling, texting and smoking.
The case of Morris came to light almost immediately after a similar but separate case was reported by the Inquisitr Monday. An 11th grade teacher, Emily Nesbit, resigned from her post after it was revealed that the 31-year-old teacher slept with an 18-year-old student right insider her classroom. Feeling remorse for her actions, Nesbit told the press that what she did was a “bad decision”.
According to the local Ledbury Reporter, Loren Morris will serve her first 12 months and will be released on license after.
