A mum of five has been jailed after she had sex in her Jeep with a schoolboy she met on Facebook.

Married Susan Millman, 47, sobbed as she admitted twice having intercourse with the 15 year-old boy.

She had also used a webcam to entice other teenage boys by exposing her chest on the internet and pledging to have sex with one of them.

Millman first chatted to the 15-year-old on Facebook and he 'unburdened' after rows with his mum.

But she then commented on his 'good looks' and began bombarding him with sexual texts, Grimsby Crown Court heard.

Police became aware when an adult was informed and the victim was interviewed by police. Millman was sentenced to 18 months in prison.

She was banned from working with children for life and ordered to sign on the sex offenders' register for 10 years.

Following the hearing, investigating officer Detective Sergeant Stewart Watson told the local newspaper: "Female sex offenders should not be treated any differently. I am satisfied the court has recognised that."

Millman's husband, who owns a coach company, attended court and was said to be 'standing by his wife', according to her barrister.

Prosecuting barrister James Byatt said Millman's initial contact with the youth was on Facebook and was of a friendly nature prior to the two offences between September and November 2010 and January and March 2011.

He said: "She took a caring attitude and he confided in her. He felt he could unburden himself and they had hugs. After rows with his mother he felt he could go to confide in her.

"The nature of the communication changed and it became more sexual. She would comment on his good looks.

"There was a message for him on Facebook every day and texts of a sexual nature were sent. There were so many he asked her to stop it when he was at school."

Mr Byatt gave details of the first sexual encounter when she picked him up in her Jeep.

On another occasion the boy climbed out of his bedroom window and again she picked him up in the Jeep in which they had intercourse.

Detectives later discovered evidence on a webcam of her revealing herself and making provocative statements to one of the boys.

Judge David Tremberg told Millman: "You were in a position of trust. You could not have failed to know that any form of amorous relationship, let alone full sexual relations with a boy 30 years your junior would have been wholly inappropriate and illegal.

"You were prepared to engage him on Facebook, by telephone and texts. "At the time you were involved he should have been concentrating at school. He did not need to be distracted."
