A SYDNEY woman has pleaded guilty to having sex with her nine-year-old son.
The 48-year-old woman and her 56-year-old husband were charged in November 2009 with multiple offences relating to the repeated sexual assault of their son, who is now aged 10.
The offences allegedly occurred during 2009 at the family home at Peakhurst in Sydney’s south. Video recordings were allegedly made, and the footage later posted online.
The mother faced Sydney’s Central Local Court today, when a solicitor entered pleas of guilty to one charge of sexual intercourse with a person under 10 and two charges of committing an act of indecency.
Five other charges against the woman, including concealing a serious offence, aggravated indecency and inciting aggravated indecency, were withdrawn by prosecutors.
The woman was granted bail by Magistrate Alan Moore and is due to face the District Court for sentencing on June 4.
An order before the court prevents the woman from seeing or contacting her son until he is 18 years old.
Details of that order are likely to be discussed when an apprehended violence order is discussed in court on June 11.
For legal reasons, none of the parties involved in the matter can be identified.
The father, who is also charged with multiple offences including sexual intercourse with the boy, is due to have his case mentioned at Central Local Court this afternoon.
