A 46-year-old woman from Mamelodi pleaded guilty in open court to raping her daughter’s 13-year-old boyfriend. And the judge sentenced her to NO TIME in jail, but two years of probation.
Elaine Mthembu who was 45 at the time of the attack, was arrested and charged with fourth-degree rape after her daughter’s boyfriend told authorities.
The boy, who was also 13, snuck out of his home early morning on December 15, 2016, to meet with Elaine around 1 a.m. until 4:30 a.m. where they engaged in intimate acts inside her car.
The boy at one point told the Children’s Advocacy Center that Mthembu kissed him and undressed before they had sex, court documents state.
Police recovered DNA evidence from Mthembu’s vehicle, clothing and the cell phone she used to communicate with the boy.
Mthembu also exchanged text messages with a friend, saying the boy “is so cute” and had a “nice a– body,” according to court documents.
