Natalie Williams also took her vulnerable victim to a hotel room for sex, which the 14-year-old paid for on a credit card stolen from his family
An angry mother told how her family was torn apart by a female paedophile who seduced her teenage son on a trampoline.
Natalie Williams, 22, also took her vulnerable victim to a hotel room for sex, which the 14-year-old paid for on a credit card stolen from his family.
It is thought the infatuated schoolboy was just 13 when he and Williams, who has bluebirds tattooed across her chest, began a torrid sexual relationship.
Yesterday, Williams was jailed for two years.
But the boy’s mum slammed the sentence as “disgusting” before explaining how her son has been put into foster care as a result of the case.
She said: “My son had no chance once she got her claws into him. He thought she was his girlfriend and that their relationship was normal.
“She groomed him. She took him into her confidence and took away his virginity. It changed a decent lad into someone we hardly knew. People think of sexual predators as men who prey on vulnerable women or children – it’s hard to imagine a young woman being a paedophile but that’s what she is.”
Teesside crown court heard Williams – who got pregnant with a new boyfriend in a bid to avoid prison – had “preyed upon” the naive schoolboy.
Judge Simon Bourne-Arton rejected claims from the tattooed temptress that the lad had “pestered” her for sex.
He said Williams was the driving force and failed to “appreciate” the impact of her action. He added her pregnancy did not prevent her from being imprisoned because a man who preyed on a girl in the same way would be jailed.
The judge said: “The law sets out to protect those that are under the age of consent, whether they are boys or girls, from those who would take advantage of their youth. They are not to be preyed upon by those who are older than them, and certainly over the age of consent, and that is why these are very serious offences.”
Williams, of Darlington, Co Durham, admitted three charges of sexual activity with a child, attempted sexual touching, fraud and handling stolen goods. She was put on the sex offenders’ register for 10 years and banned for life from working with children.
After the hearing, the boy’s mother, stepfather and grandparents told how he had struggled at school and lost all of his friends since the offences first emerged last September.
The victim’s mother said: “I think the sentence is disgusting. It’s not long enough. His life has completely fallen apart and she will be out in a year or so. That sort of sentence amounts to nothing for what she has taken from him. His life has been ruined by what she did.
“Her pregnancy looked like an deliberate plan to avoid being sent to prison. I’m so glad the judge saw through it.”
The pair’s first sexual encounter was on a garden trampoline. They then spent the night at Bannatyne Hotel Darlington and ran up a bill of more than £1,000 on the stolen debit card.
His parents went to the police when they realised there had been a series of unauthorised payments from their bank account and the card was missing.
The National Association for People Abused in Childhood praised the judge for jailing Williams when other female paedophiles often dodge prison.
Chief executive Peter Saunders said: “It’s refreshing to see a judge acknowledge the seriousness of the crime whether they be women or men perpetrators. The consequences and the damage done to the victim can be the same or even worse.”
