Woman faces sex charges

Have your say

A 40-YEAR-OLD Doncaster woman will go on trial next year accused of sexual offences against a schoolboy.

Rachel Peters, of Kennington Grove, Edlington, made her first appearance before Doncaster Crown Court on a total of 11 charges relating to a boy of 13.

Peters will face eight allegations of inciting a boy to engage in sexual activity and three of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child.

They are alleged to have taken place last year.

Peters did not make a plea to the charges but her defence counsel asked the court to fix a three-day trial date in April 2012.

The defendant was granted bail with a condition that she makes no contact with prosecution witnesses.

The judge made an order preventing identification of the child, who will be giving his evidence via video link to the courtroom.
