A young woman was arrested on a charge of assault by penetration after posing as a man and having sex with girls as young as 12 years old, police in the United Kingdom said.
Now, 23-year-old Jennifer Staines of Bristol, has been sentenced to serve three years in prison after pleading guilty to numerous counts of assault by penetration.
According to the police investigation, Staines set up social media profiles using the name Jason Spiller, so she could contact teenage girls.
Her victims believed they were talking with a man, and after conversations on social media sites, they met and started a relationship.
In one case, the relationship lasted more than a year.
She pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual assault, two counts of assault by penetration and two counts of possession of an indecent photo.
The charges relate to three victims, two from Bristol, who were aged between 12 and 17 at the time of the offenses.
An investigation began after the mother of one of the victims contacted the police, as she believed Staines was a woman impersonating a man.
Prosecutors told the court that her actions were driven by her own selfish desires, and although her victims consented to sexual activity with her, they were deceived about the true nature of what they were engaging in.
The manipulation was so extreme that one of her victims still struggles to believe she was actually in a relationship with a woman, not a man.
To deceive her victims, Staines wore bandages around her chest, and told the girls that she is covering stab wounds. She also used fake male private parts to engage in sexual activity with the girls.
