‘Predatory’ school worker offered oral sex to boy, 12, and demanded spanking

A "predatory" former school worker who offered a 12-year-old child oral sex and boasted about her sex life has escaped jail time.

Jayne Helen Sewell sent "graphic" text messages to the schoolboy and told him she would like it if he spanked her.

A recorder described the 52-year-old former nurse as a "predator" and said she would have abused the young boy if she ever met him in real life.

Cardiff Crown Court heard Sewell sent the schoolboy a series of messages on Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook Messenger, Wales Online reports.

Prosecuting, Jeffrey Jones said the messages were "clearly sexually graphic" and sent with the intention of seducing the child, who has legal anonymity.

There was also evidence Sewell – who worked in a school after leaving nursing – had sent the youngster a photograph of her breasts, though the image itself has not been recovered.

The court heard that the defendant offered the boy oral sex, mutual masturbation and told him she wanted to be spanked.

There was also talk of the pair being "horny".

The alarm was raised after the schoolboy’s mother found the messages, the court was told.

Sewell, of Cardiff, previously pleaded guilty to engaging in sexual communication with a child under 16.

Appearing in the dock for sentencing, the court was told by Sewell's defence that she had just lost her husband and job, and she accepted her "abhorrent" actions.

Recorder Paul Lewis QC told Sewell that the messaging with the boy had been "wholly inappropriate", and that she had been entirely to blame for it.

He said the defendant had been motivated by sexual excitement and, had the pair met, it could have resulted in the sexual abuse of the boy.

The recorder said: "Children have to be protected from predatory adults, and that is what I regard you as – a predatory adult."

Giving the defendant a one-third credit for her guilty plea the recorder sentenced her to eight months in prison suspended for two years and ordered her to complete a community sex offenders programme.

The defendant will be a registered sex offender for five years and was made the subject of a sexual harm prevention order for the same length of time to control her access to boys aged under 16.

Recorder Lewis told her she had avoided going straight to prison by a "hair's breadth".
