A British mother was sentenced Monday to three years in prison for having sex with her 12-year-old son while her partner watched on a webcam and told her what to do.
The boy, who was 11 or 12 at the time, told police about how his mother had given him a "sex lesson" in their home, the Bristol Post (external - login to view) reports.
"In a very ordinary voice, he described an incident to the police officers about how his mother had given him a sex lesson in the main bedroom of the family home and this was observed by (the partner) via a webcam and computer link," prosecutor Mark Hollier told the court.
The woman's partner was in another country, court heard.
The mother admitted she had sex with her son following a request from her partner.
The woman's two sons are living in a foster home.
Fiona Elder said her client has a personality disorder and was dependent on her abusive partner.
