A New Zealand woman is to appear in court after she gave birth to a child with a primary school aged boy.
A Child, Youth and Family Services spokesperson confirmed CYFS was involved with the case and the 36-year-old woman was facing criminal charges.
However, because of the sensitivities around the case CYFS would not confirm details or even the charges the woman faces.
The boy, from Auckland, is understood to have been 11 when the woman had sex with him and is now 12. It is understood the boy was friends with the woman's son.
The woman coerced the boy into repeated sexual encounters over a period of time before becoming pregnant.
The boy is understood to have told the principal of his school, who alerted police and CYFS. CYFS would not confirm if the baby had been removed from the mother and taken into care.
If the age of the boy is confirmed, it would make him the youngest known father in New Zealand.
However, according to Statistics New Zealand in 2008 there were 11 fathers aged under 15. In 2007 there were 15 fathers under 15. In 2006 there was one mother aged 11, the youngest age on record. In 2007 there was one 12 year old mother.
Last year a 45-year-old Hamilton woman was jailed for 22 months for having sex with a 15-year-old boy. The woman, who has permanent name suppression to protect the identity of her victim, seduced the boy when he had run away from home and was looking for somewhere to spend the night. The boy went to her home because he knew the woman's daughter.
Despite the boy's protestations, the woman removed his shirt, jeans and underwear, then had sex with him, the court heard. He got dressed and left straight after the attack.
Despite it being a one-off, clinical psychologist Luanda Young said it would have a definite impact on the boy.
At his young age it could skew his sexual and emotional development, as well as his personal identity. 【已有很多网友发表了看法，点击参与讨论】【对英语不懂，点击提问】【英语论坛】【返回首页】
