Woman appears in court for sex with minor

A 26-year-old woman has appeared before a Siparia magistrate on charges of having sex with a minor.

The accused appeared before Magistrate Margaret Alert for having sex with a 15-year-old boy.

Due to the relation to the victim, the accused will not be named.

She faced four charges from encounters which were said to have taken place at the minor’s Siparia home on multiple days in July.

The charges were laid indictably and the woman was not called upon to enter a plea.

The woman, police said, began to act in a strange manner after the charges were read and as a result, she was ordered to the St Ann’s Psychiatric Hospital for an evaluation.

The matter was then adjourned to January 24.
