According to Daily Record, when the boy’s relative walked in and found him on top of her, he fled the room. Gatt asked the relative: “What’s your problem?” and was reminded of his age.
Gatt, of Dalrymple, Ayrshire, was set to face trial in September but admitted one count of sexual activity with a child. Her lawyer said she was “brave” for pleading guilty to her crime.
Prosecutor, Virginia Hayton told Carlisle Crown Court that after being caught n*ked with the boy on top of her, Gatt fell and injured herself, so paramedics and police were called to the scene.
Hayton said: “She was described as being fairly aggressive to them. She asked if she could just go home as she had made a fool of herself. She was then arrested.”
Brian Williams, defending, said: “She has pleaded guilty and it is a brave plea because no one can remember what happened.”
Judge Barbara Forrester said that the relative had caught her in the act.
Williams added: “The consequences of this conviction have been substantial, upsetting and distressing for her.
“She faces hostility within her local community and she’s lost some of her work.”
Williams said the worst was that the single mother was no longer allowed to be alone with her two young daughters.
He said: “One usually finds people facing these offences to be men with a predilection for young boys or girls.
“That is not the case here. This offence was committed when she was drunk and she has no interest in young men. She is not a paedophile. She was very, very drunk and did something very, very silly.”
Judge Forrester told Gatt: “There is a disparity of age, a serious breach of trust and you had both drunk alcohol but I accept you did not provide it to him. What happened after that, we will never know.”
She handed Gatt a 20-month prison sentence suspended for two years.
The judge made Gatt subject to a sexual harm prevention order, put her on the s*x offenders’ register for 10 years and ordered her to pay £1000 costs. PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
