Woman, 33, who lured 13-yr-old boy to her home and forced him to have sex with her jailed

A woman who lured a 13-year-old boy into her home and forced him to have sex with her has been jailed.

Nicola Fox, 33, pinned down the crying boy, who was a virgin at the time.

Fox lured the youngster into her home by saying she wanted a “chat”.

But, when he tried to leave, she closed the curtains and pulled him onto her bed in the room that also served as her living room,

The boy stood to leave again, but she sexually assaulted him, “slammed” the door then put a table up against it, Hull Crown Court heard.

Claire Holmes, prosecuting said: “She pinned him down to the bed using her weight. She was touching his chest and she removed her trousers and lower clothing.”

Fox then held the boy’s hands over his head and forced him to have sex.

Miss Holmes said: “He was clear that he didn’t want her to do this. He was telling her to stop, to get off.

“He was crying at one point. Her response was to tell him to stop crying, and she said that in an annoyed and aggressive tone. He felt annoyed, upset and embarrassed.”

The boy estimated the incident, which happened earlier this summer, lasted five to ten minutes. He went home, showered, and did not report the incident immediately.

Fox told him if he did tell anyone she would say he consented. She also sent him a message on social media saying if he told anyone “she would say that he wanted it”.

Despite his anguish, the victim had treated Fox with “dignity” during the incident because of her gender, the court heard.

Miss Holmes said: “[He] said although he tried to fight her off, he was conscious of the fact he was being assaulted by a female and he didn’t want to cause her any harm.”

Fox sat in the dock shaking her head at this and other points.

In a victim the statement, the boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, said he was grateful for the support of his family, but had not been able to confide in all his relatives. He had lost confidence and become socially isolated.

Miss Holmes said: “He can’t think about future relationships because the thought scares him. He feels angry because this defendant has taken all of his first experiences away from him, which is something he won’t get back.”

Fox, of Boulevard, west Hull, declined to answer questions in police interview. She later admitted sexual activity with a child.

Jailing Fox for four years, the judge told her: “You proceeded to force yourself on him by way of sexual intercourse. He was crying, and you told him to stop crying in an annoyed and aggressive tone.

“Even while this was happening, he still treated you with dignity because he didn’t want want to use force upon you, because in his words, you were a woman and he didn’t want to cause you any harm, so you took advantage of him in that way, and it’s clear you took his virginity.”

Fox must register as a sex offender and was made subject to a sexual harm prevention order indefinitely.
