A WOMAN who had sex with a 14-year-old boy wept yesterday as she was sentenced to at least one year in jail.

Bianca Aleida Smulders, 35, had sex with the boy at least 17 times last year. She continued to have sex with him after police interviewed her and an intervention order was taken out preventing her from contacting him.

“You committed the offence while on bail and after having acknowledged the seriousness of your conduct to police,” County Court Judge Geoffrey Chettle said.

“You need to be deterred from further offending.”

Smulders wrote letters to the teenager despite the intervention order and sent him more than 2000 text messages over two weeks.

The boy sent her about the same number of messages.

Smulders, from outer-eastern Melbourne, was yesterday jailed for three years with a minimum of one year.

She pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual penetration of a child under 16 and breaching an intervention order.

Smulders is one of only a handful of women serving time for sexually assaulting boys in Victoria.

Judge Chettle said he imposed a longer than usual parole period so Smulders could be treated for emotional and sexual dysfunction.

Treatment for female sex offenders is not available in custody, he said.

“I accept that in order to maximise your prospects for rehabilitation you will require treatment and assistance and unfortunately that treatment and assistance will not be available to you in prison,” he told her.

Smulders admitted supplying the boy, who turned 15 during their relationship, with alcohol and cigarettes.

His parents became suspicious when Smulders bought him cigarettes, a mobile phone and an iPod.

Judge Chettle said adults of either gender who sexually assaulted children had to be aware jail was awaiting them.

“It is clear from the authorities that you are to be treated no different because you are a woman,” Judge Chettle said.
