A mother was ordered to register as a sex offender for 10 years after she had sex with a boy.

Kelly Richards, a married mother of two children in South Wales, United Kingdom, admitted to having sex with the 15-year-old boy over a three month period.

The 36-year-old woman met the child after he befriended one of her sons at church, and she invited the teenager to her home for sleepovers with her children.

Richards told the boy not to tell anyone because she might get in trouble.

The boy’s mother learned of the illicit relationship and she recorded their conversations before reporting the woman to police.

The boy admitted to officers that Kelly Richards had sex with him after giving him alcohol and asking him for massages.

Prosecutor Roger Griffiths told the Crown Court that the couple had sex after Kelly Richards had an argument with her husband Paul.

Kelly Richards was crying in her bedroom and the victim entered the room to comfort her.

Richards then began kissing the boy, which resulted in a full sexual relationship.

Kelly Richards of Mountain Ash, sobbed in court as she pleaded guilty to one count of sexual activity with a child.

Her husband of 13 years, Paul, stood at her side and was very supportive of her despite the fact that she cheated on him with a child.

Paul, 34, wrote a letter to the court talking about his wife’s
“good character.”

Judge Richard Twomlow said that he had decided “with some hesitation” not to send Kelly Richards to jail.

Richards was sentenced to a two-year suspended jail term and a sexual offences prevention order. She was also ordered to register as a sex offender for 10 years.
