A Manchester schoolboy says he has been left ‘scarred for life’ after a teaching assistant he had sex with ‘over 50 times’ told him she was pregnant.
The 15-year-old who cannot be named had regular unprotected sex with teaching assistant Caroline Berriman, who was spared jail recently after admitting two counts of sexual activity with a child.
It is alleged that Caroline – who had been tutoring him in maths and English at Abraham Moss Community School – approached the boy on Facebook and asked for his number, and according to the Sun, first had sex with him five months into their relationship.
It has also been alleged that the pair got so close her daughter started calling him dad.
Speaking to Paul Keaveny of The Sun, the boy said: “We would call and text each other all the time and it got more and more into a sort of relationship. Then she started ringing me on weekends, asking if I was going round to hers.”
“It slowly got more serious. It got to a point where her daughter was calling me “dad”. I used to say to her ‘I’m not, I’m your mum’s friend’.”
The couple’s affair was recently exposed when the boy told his brother, who later told their mother.
Berriman was barred from ever contacting the boy again, handed a two year suspended sentence and was given 250 hours worth of community service. She also quit her job after being suspended.
