A 36-year-old mother-of-three has admitted in court to having sexual relations with a 14-year-old friend of her daughter, who spent the evening drinking vodka mixed with soda.
Tammy Gregory, who appeared at Reading Crown Court today, is accused of having underage sex with the boy at her home in Reading, U.K., in the summer of 2013.
The prosecution, headed by Christopher Hewertson, addressed the jury, telling them that the boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, arrived back at the house at around 2 a.m.
He reportedly went to Gregory’s bedroom and began to fall asleep in the bed there.
According to the court records, Gregory and the boy began kissing and then had sexual relations, as the boy admitted in a videotaped police interview.
“It was like 3am in the morning and she [Gregory’s daughter] went to her room. So then I just went into her [Gregory’s] bed. She was not there. I woke up, I don’t know what time, it was light and she [Gregory] was there. We just started kissing and it happened. I pulled down her pyjama bottoms. We wasn’t (sic) speaking.
I stopped kissing her and pulled my shorts down and we had sex. I didn’t say anything.”
The prosecution continued that there was no denying that sex took place on that night, as Hewertson added.
“The sexual activity takes place at the defendant’s home address. There is no dispute that the victim was 14-years-old at the time. He had had his 14th birthday exactly a week before. Clearly alcohol was consumed. He wakes up close to dawn at which stage he is aware the defendant has got into bed with him. They roll over and face one another. There is a period of kissing. He, in effect, rolled on top of her. [It] led to full sex.”
The defendant denies one count of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity as the trial continues.
