The Toronto Star

GUELPH - A Guelph woman who had sex with her son's 13-year-old friend while he was sleeping over at her house was sentenced yesterday to three months of house arrest.

Mr. Justice Gary Hearn said he is satisfied the 32-year-old does not represent a risk to the community. The woman pleaded guilty in January to sexual interference. She cannot be identified because that could lead to the the victim's identity.

Last July 7, the accused's 14-year-old son and some friends returned home about 12:30 a.m. to play video games.

When the accused arrived later all the youths were asleep except the 13-year-old. Court heard the woman performed a sex act on the boy and the two then went to the accused's bedroom and had intercourse.
