Mother Jailed For Underage Sex

A mother of five from Dorset who had sex with two teenage boys has been jailed for two-and-a-half years, prosecutors have said.

Davina Travi, 42, slept with the 13-year-old and 14-year-old as a ''reward'' after they smashed up a love rival's car.

Travi was convicted of two charges of sexual activity with a child under the age of 16 following a trial.

Jurors were told that Travi would regularly hold parties for children at her former home and let them smoke and drink.

Bournemouth Crown Court heard how Travi had sex with the boys for damaging her ex-lover's partner's car.

The court was told the offences came to light when one of the boys told a social worker at his school.

Travi claimed the boys were lying and said it was impossible for her to have sex with them due to a medical condition.

Maria Sciberras, CPS Wessex senior crown prosecutor, said: ''Davina Travi, a 42-year-old mother of five children, was today sentenced for having sexual intercourse with two boys whilst they were only 13 and 14 years of age.

''It is a criminal offence for any adult to have a sexual relationship with youths under the age of 16. We hope that this prosecution will enable other teenagers or parents to recognise a similar situation and come forward to the police.''

Travi, of Kinson, Bournemouth, was also placed on the sex offenders' register for life.
