In an especially revolting example of bad parenting, a 39-year-old British mom has been jailed for having sex with her 12-year-old son . while her partner watched on webcam, telling the mother what to do over headphones. The mother described the act as a "sex lesson."
The son in question, along with his brother, have been placed in foster care.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The mother abused her son in her bedroom as her lover viewed online from abroad. The boy told police how he could hear his mother being told what to do.
The mother reportedly "blurted out" that she had abused the older of her two sons while speaking to a domestic abuse charity about her partner. Her "highly destructive" partner, as described in court, has escaped justice thus far.
The mother has since been jailed for three years and three months at Bristol Crown Court.
"Your behavior towards your son was contrary to human instincts and basic decency," Judge Michael Longman told her. "It occurred after you met a man who clearly was controlling and over-bearing; a man who, it is also clear, should be prosecuted himself but is outside the jurisdiction and beyond the reach of this investigation.
"Even though he was at a distance from you, he continued to exert that influence, but you continued to behave towards your son in a way which, despite that pressure, your own instincts should have prevented."
It was learned that the boy was just 11 or 12 when the abuse took place. The unsavory incident came to light when his mother made a complaint at Next Link Domestic Abuse Services in Bristol.
Her confession was passed on to Avon and Somerset police and she was taken in for questioning, and the boy was interviewed.
"In a very ordinary voice, he described an incident to the police officers about how his mother had given him a sex lesson in the main bedroom of the family home and this was observed by [the partner] via a webcam and computer link," Prosecutor Mark Hollier said.
The mother, who cried through much of the hearing denied "volunteering" to have sex with her son. She was later charged with engaging in penetrative sexual activity with a boy under 13, which she admitted.
Her two sons were taken into care by social services and are now living with a foster family. The mother's abusive partner is still abroad and police are liaising with authorities in that country, which can't be named for legal reasons to bring him to justice.
