'He looked much older': UK Mum tells teen sex trial why she had sex with 14-year-old boy

 

A mum-of-three has admitted having sex with a 14-year-old boy she invited to her home after watching him play soccer but says he looked much older and it didn’t “occur” to her he might be under age.

British woman Teah Vincent has pleaded not guilty to having sex with the year 9 student knowing he was under 16.

The Mirror reports that on Wednesday, Vincent told Gloucester Crown Court she was “sure” the boy told her he was 16 and Vincent “felt he looked much older”.

“It didn’t occur to me that he might be underage,” the 32-year-old said.

“He definitely didn’t tell me he was in Year 9, or that he was only 14, before we had sex.”

The court had previously heard that Vincent saw the boys playing soccer in a park near her Gloucestershire home on October 21, 2018.

She then invited them back for a glass of water and then began talking about her body and about sex, The Daily Star reported.

On Tuesday, prosecutor Christopher Smyth told the court she then took one of the boys upstairs while the other remained in the kitchen.

“[She] 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,” Smyth said.

The pair had sex, but the boy ended up pushing her off and returning to his friend downstairs.

“I don’t deny we had sex. I didn’t force him, he happily responded on his own accord,” Vincent told the court on Wednesday.

It was only after the pair had sex that a conversation revealed his true age.

“There was a discussion about school and I realised he was not in the sixth form and it was only then I realised his actual age,” Vincent said.

“I think he panicked when he revealed his age being 14.

“I’m angry with myself and I am angry with them for lying about their ages.

“If I had known the truth at the time I wouldn’t be here in court now.”

Earlier the court heard Vincent had told the police: “Both youths told me they were 16 years old.”

But she declined to answer any other questions.

The Mirror also reported that Vincent was upset when asked about her three children and her dealings with social service workers following her charges.
