British woman started relationship with underage boy after marriage breakdown
A 35-year-old woman from a rural Nottinghamshire village has been jailed for having a sexual relationship with an underage boy.
Lauren Swindin, of Grovewood Road in Misterton, began the relationship with the teenager in 2013, following the breakdown of her marriage.
Police became involved after an anonymous tip-off in early 2014 and Swindin was arrested. At a previous hearing Swindin pleaded guilty to two counts of engaging in sexual activity with a boy.
She was sentenced at Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday to two years and six months in jail.
She is also subject to an indefinite Sexual Harm Prevention Order and is required to sign the Sex Offenders' Register for life.
Sergeant Nathan Thomas from Nottinghamshire Police said: "Swindin manipulated this boy into a sexual relationship, knowing full-well the legal implications of her actions. "She now has two-and-a-half years in prison to reflect on this.
