An English woman has been sentenced to prison time for a sexual relationship with a child that lasted two years.
Loren Morris, 21, has been sentenced to up to two years in prison for forcing a child to have sex with her at least 50 times.
According to The Huffington Post, the abuse began five years ago when Morris was 16-years-old and the victim was 8-years-old. The coercive encounters lasted for two years, until the boy was 10-years-old. It was then that Morris reportedly realized what she was doing was "wrong" and stopped of her own volition.
The abuse was kept quiet until the victim was heard bragging about the sexual encounters to his schoolmates.
According to The Daily Mail, Judge Robert Juckes QC said that he would be giving Moore a more lenient sentence because she realized her wrongdoing and stopped of her own freewill.
“I have come to the conclusion that due to the concern and embarrassment caused to both you and your family that you will not be offending again, let alone committing sexual offences,” Judge Juckes said.
However, he quickly added: “That does not stop the fact though that you had full sexual intercourse with a child when he was eight to 10 years old - by his evidence it was upwards of fifty times…You realised it was wrong rather than being caught and forced to stop. Therefore my sentence is one of two years. You will serve 12 months in prison before being released on licence.”
Morris is a mother of one.
She has been banned from having contact with a child without parent permission. She will also have to register as a sex offender for ten years.
