A mother sexually abused a 15-year-old boy for months as part of her dirty plan to make him her “sexual plaything” and eventually gave birth to his child.
Sarah Campbell, now 40, had sex with her victim on a golf course and under a blanket while others slept in the same room.
She would also douse the boy with cocaine and cannabis so they would “get off their barnets” together as part of her dirty plan to make him her “sexual play thing” between 2016 and 2017.
A judge told her she robbed him of part of his childhood and used it for her own amusement. This is reported by the Liverpool Echo.
As Campbell stood distraught in the dock and was jailed by a judge at Liverpool Crown Court, a family member in the public gallery told her to “keep your head high”.
Martine Snowdon, prosecutor, said Campbell began grooming the boy in 2016 and abused him for the first time.
She said they had sex several times and she would offer him drugs.
Ms Snowdon said: “They would regularly ‘take their barnets off’, eh [the victim] Let’s say smoking cannabis and taking cocaine that was provided to her.”
She said Campbell would try to avoid social services and others from finding the boy by tricking him into sneaking into her home and hiding at odd times of the day.
She then became pregnant with a child who was later determined to be his and was charged with multiple sex offenses against him.
She was sent to the Liverpool Crown Court trial but fled after it began and was convicted in her absence. She was later arrested and taken into custody.
Simon Christie, who is defending herself, said Campbell was a victim of abuse herself and sought counseling in prison while also using her time there positively.
Mr Christie said: “The defendant has already made good use of her time in her first experience of detention. She was given the responsibility as wing cleaner.”
Judge Ian Harris told Campbell her actions robbed the boy of part of his childhood.
He said she treated the boy as her own “sex toy” and used him for her own pleasure.
Campbell of Bootle was sentenced to nine and a half years in prison. Distraught, she stood motionless with her head bowed and her hands on the dock for several minutes before sitting down and resting her head in her hands for the remainder of the hearing.
A family member then shouted, “I’ll do what I can” and said, “I know the truth.” As they left, they added: “I’ll go now, chin up. I mean it that way.”
After her sentencing, Merseyside Police Detective Sergeant Peter Sloan said: “The horrific abuse committed by Campbell not only traumatizes victims when it happens, but has a tremendous impact on their mental well-being that can last a lifetime.
“It can also irreparably damage a victim’s faith and trust in adults, which can affect their ability to form trusting relationships. The courage of the victim and her family to come forward and report Campbell to the police so that she can be brought to justice means she cannot do any further harm.”
