A West Coast woman is in jail for three years for having sex with a 12-year-old boy.

Caroline Anne McClenaghan, 33, was charged and found guilty on 8 counts of unlawful sex with a minor in a judge-alone trial .

At sentencing in the Greymouth District Court last week, her lawyer said he was not shifting any blame onto the victim. However, he asked the judge to consider home detention because the accused was a woman. The judge wasn’t going for it.

He started with a four years jail sentence, but reduced it by one year because McClenaghan did not have any previous convictions.
