A paedophile mum asked a boy for help with a video game before having sex with him in her bedroom.
Nicola Holton, 36, lured the 15-year-old round her house to watch a film and said she needed help with a game her son was playing.
After telling him that “she could not wait until 2023 when he would be 18”, Holton performed sex acts on him.
The pervert, who works in childcare, was jailed for four years at Worcester Crown Court on Friday, April 30, after admitting two counts of sexual activity with a child and one of sexual communication with a child between August 31 and October 10 last year.
Prosecutor Caroline Harris told the court the boy had said he “wanted it to stop and then he would just be a normal child”.
Holton later sent the child messages “suggesting she was pleasuring herself”.
The victim said he removed those messages because he did not want to see them.
Mrs Harris said: “He felt he could not say anything about what happened because he was afraid he would get into trouble.

“He was asking the officer what his punishment might be for what had happened.
“It was noted by the officer that he was in tears at various stages, showing the distress that has been caused.”
Holton told the boy that she had to keep on reminding herself “he was only 15”.
The prosecutor said: “He does recall feeling pressured to do as he did.”

In a victim personal statement from the boy’s mum, she described how her son had struggled to sleep and had become reluctant to be seen out of the house and felt he would be looked at, questioned over what happened “and that he will be judged.”
She said: “I noticed a real change in him.
“He was coming in from school and becoming immediately angry.
“He had turned into someone I did not recognise at all.”
Fiona Elder, defending, said Holton had “an inability to cope on her own” after a controlling relationship with her ex-husband.
Holton can expect to serve half of the four-year custodial sentence in custody and half on licence in the community.
An indefinite restraining order and a sexual harm prevention order were also made.
The restraining order prevents her having contact, directly or indirectly, with the boy or from attending his address or any future address at which she knows or believes him to reside.
The SHPO restricts her use of internet enabled devices, including contacting children online, and prohibits unsupervised contact with any male child under 16 other than her own children.
