A woman today appeared before a Siparia magistrate charged with having sex with a 15-year-old boy in July 2018.
The 26-year-old woman was taken before magistrate Margaret Alert in the Siparia Magistrates’ Court. Four charges read to her alleged that on dates unknown in July 2018 she had sexual intercourse with the boy in his bedroom at his Siparia home. The charges were laid indictably and the woman was not called upon to enter a plea.
The woman was arrested earlier this week after investigations ended.
After the charges were read the woman began to chant incoherently and behave strangely. The magistrate ordered her to be sent for an evaluation at St Ann’s Psychiatric Hospital. The case was adjourned to January 24.
