Woman, 32, who had sex with boy, 14, claims 'he definitely didn't tell me he was in Year 9'

A WOMAN accused of having sex with a 14-year-old boy today claimed "he definitely didn't tell me he was in Year 9".

Mum-of-three, Teah Vincent told Gloucester Crown Court the pair had sex but she didn't know how old he was.


The 32-year-old allegedly lured the boy and his pal to her home in Woolaston after seeing them playing football nearby.

She told the jury: "I’m sure he told me he was 16 and I felt he looked much older. It didn’t occur to me that he might be under age.

“He definitely didn’t tell me he was in Year Nine, or that he was only 14, before we had sex."

The prosecution allege she invited the boy to her bedroom then stripped off and initiated sex with him.

Ms Vincent told the jury today “I don’t deny we had sex. I didn’t force him, he happily responded on his own accord."

She said that she had not seen the alleged victim before that afternoon, but she did know a 21 year old man who was a friend of the boy's.

The mum said that she believed the boy and a pal were playing football near her house because they were "interested" in being with her. She didn’t think there was a sexual motive, more of a friendship, she said.

'HE DIDN'T TELL ME'

She said that when the boys came round she didn’t offer them alcohol, just water.

Yesterday the jury was told she enticed them in by offering a glass of water.

Prosecutor Christopher Smyth said: "The boy had a strong feeling that the situation was not right.

“He knew he was under age and that there was a big age gap between them – she was more than twice his age.

After she had sex with the boy, she told the court, "there was a discussion about school and I realised he was not in the sixth form and it was only then I realised his actual age. I think he panicked when he revealed his age being 14.

“I’m angry with myself and I am angry with them for lying about their ages. If I had known the truth at the time I wouldn’t be here in court now."

A mutual friend of the boys', a girl, said the victim had been an 'absolute idiot' and she advised him to tell his parents, the jury heard.

Three days later the girl, with two others, went round to see the victim and his mother.

The trial continues.
