An English court has ruled that a serial female pedophile, who coerced at least one of her teenage victims with Nike sneakers after she had sex with him, will be spending two years behind bars.

The New York Post reported that 44-year-old Gail Wright met her five victims last year on Facebook and formed a relationship with each of them. Reports indicate that Wright would send naked photos of herself to lure in the five teen boys, who were all between the ages of 14 and 15 years old.

After forming a relationship with the first teenager, she began making sexually explicit comments to the victim and sending naked photographs of herself.

The first victim said that their relationship quickly escalated because he felt he could “talk to her about things.”

Soon after, Wright initiated a sexual relationship with another teenage boy, buying him clothes and Nike Air sneakers for his 16th birthday.

Another victim became interested in the woman after borrowing a friend’s phone and saw her Facebook account. Police say that the victim initiated the messages between the two of them.

The inappropriate conduct came to fruition when one of the victim’s fathers noticed the pictures on his son’s phone and called the cops.

All of the other parents eventually found out about the relationships and also contacted law enforcement. Investigators soon discovered about 42 inappropriate pictures on Wright’s iPad.

The woman has pleaded guilty to two counts of possessing indecent images of a child, one count of sexual activity with a child, and four of forcing a child to look at images of sexual activity.

Police announced that this is an unusual case, as the pedophile in question is a woman.

Detective Inspector Pete Quinn, of the Nottinghamshire police, said in a statement: “This goes to show that although the overwhelming majority of sexual exploitation cases brought to the attention of police are perpetrated by men against girls, we cannot be complacent about the fact that it can happen to anyone, anywhere.”

Quinn continued, “The teenagers in this case have shown courage and maturity in disclosing what happened, and I hope that the sentence handed down today will help them and their families move on from a very distressing time.”

Wright will be forced to register as a sex offender for the next 10 years.
