A 36-year-old single mother who seduced a 12-year-old boy and had sex with him repeatedly has been stopped before hitting a double century. Yes, she was taken into custody for child sex and is now facing an indefinite jail sentence.
Angela Sullivan, 36, of Middlesbrough, UK kept track of her sessions meticulously, marking each encounter with a star in her diary. The first time she got him drunk to coax him into action, but subsequently the boy didn't need much of a persuasion, it seems. She was arrested in October last.
She had a ten-month fling with the boy last year, often having sex at her home when she sent her son to stay with his grandparents at weekends.
Sullivan even bought the youngster a pair of trainers as a reward when the pair slept together for the 100th time, the Teesside Crown Court heard.
Her case was adjourned so psychiatric and probation reports can be drawn up, and she will return to court next month to be sentenced.
Details of the illicit affair emerged when rumours circulated at the boy's school about Sullivan being pregnant, Neil Hunter reported for Northern Echo.
Investigators later discovered that he had been boasting to friends in chat rooms.
Sullivan, who has no previous convictions, could be jailed indefinitely for the protection of the public.
Several windows at the unemployed mother's home have been smashed since she was arrested and held in prison.
