A mum allegedly lured a 14-year-old boy back to her house to have sex after watching him play football with a friend. It was heard by the court how the victim informed the woman how he was still attending school.
At Glouchester Crown Court, it was heard how Teah Vincent, 32, lured two 14-year-old boys back to her home in Woolaston, where she offered them a glass of water after watching them play football.
The jury was told how the woman then proceeded to take one of the boys up to her bedroom, where she then initiated sex with him.
The mum of three, who has children of primary school age, admitted having sex with the boy on October 21, 2018, yet denies knowing that he was underage.
Prosecutor Christopher Smyth told the jury how Vincent offered the boys a glass of water at around 5 pm after they’d been playing football at Woolaston Memorial Hall.
He said: “The boys took up Ms Vincent’s offer and went back to her home. One of the boys knew Vincent but the alleged victim didn’t.
“They sat down at the kitchen table. Ms Vincent said she thought she knew one of them and said to him that she understood he had a child on the way.
“He told her he was only 14 and was still at school.”
The court heard how the three talked about school for a short time, yet Vincent then changed the subject to her body and sex.
Mr Smyth added: “She said that she covered up quickly and put on clothes as quickly as she could.
“She then moved the conversation to talk about sex. The slightly older boy felt that Ms Vincent was coming onto the younger one but he felt the situation was lost on him.
“She then invited the younger boy upstairs. He went up thinking there would be a television or some other gaming device while his friend remained downstairs in the kitchen.
“Ms Vincent then took the boy into her bedroom and told him to sit down on the bed. She left the room and reappeared a few moments later having removed her clothes.
“She pulled him back onto the bed so he was lying down.”
Apparently, Vincent then mounted the teenager and initiated sex. The court heard how she didn’t discuss doing having sex with him beforehand.
According to the victim, she was “bouncing up and down” on him for around five minutes.
The prosecutor said: “He says there was no discussion at all. The boy had a strong feeling that the situation was not right.
“He knew he was underage and that there was a big age gap between them – she was more than twice his age.
“In the end he pushed her off, got dressed and fled downstairs.
“The victim’s friend said that he’d heard sexual sounds coming down the stairs. He felt awkward and he left the house for a short while before returning. He said that he felt his friend had been an idiot.”
The boys then told a friend of theirs what had happened. This person then advised the victim to report the incident to his family.
Mr Smyth told the court how a girl, “another mutual friend of the boys”, said that the victim had been an “absolute idiot” and encouraged him to inform his parents about what had happened.
He continued: “Three days later the girl, with two others, went round to see the victim and his mother. They told her what had gone on. The mother then went to see Vincent at her home address.
“When Ms Vincent opened the door the mother said ‘What the hell is this I hear about you having sex with a 14-year-old? That’s my son.’
“Ms Vincent said ‘Not now, I have my daughter with me,’ and shut the door in the mother’s face.
“The victim said that Vincent was swearing at his mother.”
It was at that point that the father of the victim’s friend also went around to visit Vincent and warn her off seeing the young boys in the village again.
Yet the following day, he claims he was threatened by another man in his own home.
The prosecutor told the court: “The next day the victim’s friend was alone at his home when Mr Richard Remnant approached the front door.
“The boy opened the window and was warned that if his father or elder brother ever went to the defendant’s house again ‘I will stab them in the jaw’. He then left without saying any more.”
On October 26, Vincent was arrested. She told a police officer that she thought the boy had been older.
She said: “Both youths told me they were 16-years-old.”
However, she refused to add any further information.
The jury panel was made up of eight men and four women. The prosecutor explained to them that there was no doubt that sexual intercourse had taken place, the matter being questioned was whether or not Vincent was aware of the boy’s real age at the time of the incident.
Vincent’s defender, Catherine Flint, said: “Ms Vincent had previously spoken to the older boy when he told her he was 18.
“Once the pair were inside the house, she says, the alleged victim told her he was 16.”
Yet the jury heard the victim’s police interview, in which he said: “The woman told us she was insecure about her body and that she covers herself up quickly when she gets out of the shower.
“She invited me upstairs and I thought she had a gaming system or television. It was only me she invited. My friend stayed downstairs.
“She asked me to sit on the bed and left the room for a short while. When she returned she was naked.”
The victim described how for “about five minutes”, Vincent was “bouncing up and down” on him.
He then recalled how he ended up “wrestling the woman off him”, adding: “I got dressed and told my friend as I got downstairs we had to go.
“His reaction was that I had been an idiot.
“My mother went to see her a few days later and challenged her. She told her that the police needed to be involved. Her response was: ‘Get the f***ing police then’.”
Vincent has pleaded not guilty to having sexual intercourse with the boy on October 21, 2018, and insists she didn’t know his true age.
The trial is still underway.
