British Mum-of-three, 32, CLEARED after having sex with 14-year-old boy

A mum-of-three has been cleared by a jury of having sex with a boy in the knowledge he was only 14.

British woman, Teah Vincent, admitted to having sex with the 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 underage.

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

“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 before she invited them back.

On Tuesday, prosecutor Christopher Smyth told the court she then took one of the boys upstairs, “told him to sit down on the bed, left the room and reappeared a few moments later having removed her clothes”.

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.

The verdict

The verdict came after late evidence emerged that the boy had given a false date of birth on his Facebook profile which listed his date of birth as 2000, The Mirror reported.

The boy told the court he had entered the false date after being given a new phone for his 13th birthday and had wanted to “access games and other things straight away”.

“I chose 2000 because 2001 or 2003 was ‘disorganised’. I forgot to change it when I got older.”

Defence barrister Catherine Flint, in her final speech to the jury, said: “You have heard a lot about Ms Vincent’s behaviour on that Sunday.

“You may have formed a view that her behaviour was morally questionable. However, your role is not to make moral judgements, but to decide if she broke the law.”

On Thursday she was discharged by Judge Ian Lawrie QC after a jury found her not guilty of knowingly having sex with an underage boy.

Vincent took to Facebook to share the news with friends and family, writing “NOT GUILTY”.

“THANKYOU EVERYONE THAT STOOD BEHIND ME AND BELIEVED ME ITS BEEN THE HARDEST TWO YEARS OFF MY LIFE.”
