21-year-old babysitter had sexual intercourse with an 11-year-old boy, receives a suspended sentence

With monotonous regularity we see cases of female sex offenders not being held properly accountable for their crimes, even when their victims are children.

Our thanks to a number of people for sending us links to this, a particularly outrageous example of leniency shown towards a female sex offender. The start of the article:

A babysitter who had sex with an 11-year-old boy she was supposed to be looking after has been spared jail after the child’s father defended her.

A court heard that the boy was ‘sex mad’ and ‘sees it as a notch on his belt’ to have sex with Jade Hatt, 21, who seduced him while babysitting him when he was off school for a day.

The judge gave Hatt a suspended sentence on the grounds that she was ‘immature’ while her victim was unusually mature, which ‘narrows the arithmetic age gap’.

Let’s see how a gender switch would read, to see the double standard:

A male babysitter who had sex with an 11-year-old girl he was supposed to be looking after has been spared jail after the child’s mother defended him.

A court heard that the girl was ‘sex mad’ and ‘sees it as a notch on her belt’ to have sex with Jim Hatt, 21, who seduced her while babysitting her when she was off school for a day.

The judge gave Hatt a suspended sentence on the grounds that he was ‘immature’ while his victim was unusually mature, which ‘narrows the arithmetic age gap’.

80,000 of the 84,000 people in prisons in the UK today are men. William Collins showed in an important article that if men were treated as leniently as women in prison sentencing terms, five out of six men in British prisons wouldn’t be there.

  1. The prejudice becomes evident if you use a picture “male parent says it’s OK to have sex with his 11 year old son.” and don’t forget… this “father” also had a sexual relationship with the baby sitter.

  2. Reblogged this on Because "Vagina"! and commented:
    The prejudice becomes evident if you use a picture “male parent says it’s OK to have sex with his 11 year old son.” Keep on mind that “father was also having sex with the “baby sitter”…

  3. In what possible dimension is this not kiddie-fiddling, plain and simple? Her defence, in effect, was that the child was ‘asking for it’ – and some dribbling judge accepted that? Incredible! In fifty years feminism has removed men from inclusion in the human species, we are now wholly outside the protection of the law.

  4. And, correct me if I’m wrong, isn’t sex with an 11-year-old GIRL, Statutory Rape, whether the girl is ‘sex mad’ or not?
    So, do we assume no crime was committed by anybody here, just a ‘narrowing of an age gap’?
    I’m sure feminists will be up in arms and taking to Twitter in their droves, interviews on Newsnight, articles in the Guardian – because they care so much about the equal treatment of males and females . . . How long shall I hold my breath?
