A woman is starting a 15 month jail sentence for having sex with a 14-year-old boy. Linda Jane Jones, 34, a mother-of-two from Mold, became pregnant by the teenager, who the judge said had been left "considerably traumatised." Mold Crown Court heard that shortly after she was interviewed by the police, she lost the baby. She admitted three counts of sexual touching involving intercourse and must register as a sex offender. Another charge was allowed to lie on file. She must now register as a sex offender for 10 years and is banned from working with children for life. The court heard that Jones and the boy had sex three times. Judge Merfyn Hughes QC said that while it was unusual for a woman to abuse a young boy, there as no distinction between such an offence being committed by a man or a woman. One must also recognise the tragedy brought upon her by her own actions Duncan Bould, defending He said the least sentence he could impose was one of 15 months imprisonment. "You gained the trust of his family and you abused that trust when you engaged in sexual contact with him," said Judge Hughes. "He was only 14 years of age, a young boy who had no previous sexual experience of any kind at all. "I cannot ignore the difference in your ages - you were 34 and twice his age." The judge told the court: "The fact that you became pregnant, and that the child was lost, is another aspect of the human tragedy which results in cases of this kind." 'Feeling vulnerable' He said the victim had been "considerably traumatised" by what she had done. "You are not being sentenced on the basis that you forced him or assaulted him against his will. "But the consent that he gave was the consent of a young boy, not that of a man of adult age," he said. The judge told the defendant he took into account her guilty plea, that she had no previous convictions, and was the mother of young children. Duncan Bould, defending, said Jones had accepted full responsibility at a time when she herself was feeling vulnerable after her husband left her. He said there was no predatory element or grooming involved. "One must also recognise the tragedy brought upon her by her own actions," he said. "It is right to say that she is someone who has not come to terms with the loss of the baby." BBC News Even at 14 surely no-ones that desperate!
