Mum who had sex with schoolboy took advantage as his grandma died in hospital

A woman coerced a grieving 15-year-old boy into a sexual relationship while his gran was dying in hospital.

Suda Epuna met her victim on social media as she sent him pornographic videos and text messages of what she wanted him to do to her.

The then 29-year-old invited him to her house to have sex and on one occasion her daughter was present when they had intercourse, Hull Live reports.

She claimed the victim initially told her he was 17 when she invited him over to her house and asked him if he was a virgin, according to prosecutor Stephen Robinson.

A court heard how she asked him to smoke weed with her after he confessed to it being his first time, before hugging and kissing him and asking him to touch her.

She then took him upstairs into the bedroom and they had sex.

Robinson said: "The second time they met, he admitted to her that he was 15, but that did not deter her."

The court heard they had sex seven times in total.

The victim’s grandmother was in the hospital when the offence occurred. He had told her about his contact with Epuna and she said she would sort it out and speak with her after she was discharged.

Unfortunately, she died while in hospital.

Text message conversations between the two showed the victim telling Epuna he loved her.

She replied: “If we love each other we must hide until you are 16 or 17.

“If people know I am with you, prison.”

The victim had asked Epuna to get her copper coil contraception removed, she told him she had made a doctor’s appointment, but later told him ‘she did not want him to be a father at 15’, the court heard.

In further text conversations, the two discussed sex positions and she sent him pornographic images detailing what they were.

The two ended communication in September, 2019 when the victim said he ‘could not take it anymore and did not want to get her into s**t’. The defendant replied that she was heartbroken.

In a statement read in court, the victim said: “I feel embarrassed by what happened. She was a lot older than me and I feel she tricked me.

“I was only 15 and inexperienced, I was also curious and naive as many boys are my age.

“My grandmother was unwell and she was aware of that. I feel she took advantage of me. I just went along with it.”

David Godfrey, mitigating, said Epuna feels great shame because of what has happened and her daughter has been removed from her care as a result.

He said that Epuna was a socially removed woman who was lonely when this happened and felt flattered, but knows what she was doing was wrong.

Jugde David Tremberg said: “It became clear the victim was only 15. You said if people found out you could go to prison, you went into it with your eyes wide open.

“You used him for your own sexual gratification. You left him feeling embarrassed.”

The defendant admitted to engaging in sexual activity with a child, attempting to engage in sexual activity with a child, attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child in Hull Crown Court.

He sentenced her to 32 months in prison.
