A 21-year-old woman was sentenced to two years in prison on Tuesday for having sex with an 8-year-old boy more than 50 times.
Loren Morris, who was 16 at the time, slept with the unidentified school boy until he reached 10 years old.
Her crime came to light as the boy‘s school reported the case to the police after he was heard bragging about the experience at school.
A judge handed down a two-year prison term for her, following a trial last month where she was found guilty of three counts of sexual intercourse with a child under 16.
The Daily Mail reported that Judge Robert Juckes QC gave Morris a more lenient sentence because she stopped sexually assaulting the boy after she realized it was “wrong.”
However, the judge was quoted as saying, “That does not stop the fact though that you had full sexual intercourse with a child when he was 8 to 10 years old.”
Morris is barred from having any contact with a child without the parents’ permission and forced to register as a sex offender for 10 years.
