A MOTHER will spend the rest of her life listed on a child sex offenders register after she was jailed for raping a schoolboy she met at an underage football match in Victoria.
The 39-year-old woman fronted a Victorian court on Friday where she pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual penetration of a child under the age of 16.
The court heard how the victim, who went to the same school as the woman’s daughter, was just 14-years-old at the time of the offence. The woman was 36.

It’s alleged the woman engaged in sexual acts with the schoolboy on two separate occasions at her home. The woman told police the sex acts were consensual.
According to the AAP, the prosecution claimed the woman instigated the sexual contact by flirting with the boy and asking him if she could touch his genitals.
The boy has since been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, according to his mother who delivered a victim impact statement in court.
Before handing down his sentence, the judge acknowledged the fact that the woman had been sexually abused by her stepfather between the ages of 10 and 18.
The judge described the crime as “opportunistic” that than predatory before sentencing the woman to two years prison.
She will spend a minimum 10 months behind bars before she will be eligible for parole.
The woman was also placed on a sex offenders register where she will remain listed for life.
