He was asking the officer what his punishment might be for what had happened. It was noted by the officer that he was in tears at various stages, showing the distress that has been caused.”
Fiona Elder, defending, said Holton had “an inability to cope on her own”. After a controlling relationship with her ex-husband. In a statement the boy’s mother said he was reluctant to leave the house and was not sleeping well.
Judge Nicolas Cartwright said during sentencing. “You seduced him, kissing him, taking him into your bedroom in your flat then performing oral sex upon him.
You should have known a good deal better in any event. Given that you were working in childcare and have obtained a diploma.
You were very well aware of how serious this offending was.”
He also noted that she had children of her own and knew the distress she was causing the boy. Holton was also issued with an indefinite restraining order and sexual harm prevention order.
