The woman, who was 24 years older than the 12-year-old boy with whom she began a sexual relationship, was jailed in 2015 for at least three years and six months after pleading guilty to persistent sexual abuse of a child under 16.

She appealed her jail sentence and the Court of Appeal today ruled the sentencing judge had made an error, but found the mother did not deserve a shorter sentence for her crime.
