Bournemouth woman jailed for rewarding boys with sex

A mother-of-five who had sex with underage boys to "reward" them for smashing a love rival's car has been jailed for two-and-a-half-years.

Davina Travi, 42, of Rochester Road, Bournemouth, held regular parties where she would allow children to smoke and drink, Bournemouth Crown Court heard.

The sex offences were revealed to a social worker by one of the boys.

Travi was found guilty of two offences of having sex with a child under the age of 16.

'Used immature boys'

The court was told Travi had sex with the boys in return for them damaging her ex-lover's partner's car.

But the woman claimed the boys were lying and said it was impossible for her to have sex with them due to a medical condition.

Maria Sciberras, for the prosecution, said: "It was the prosecution case that Davina Travi incited the two youths to commit criminal damage upon her ex-lover's partner's car with the promise of rewarding them with sex.

"There is no doubt that she used the age and immaturity of these youths for her own advantage."

In addition to her jail sentence, Travi was banned from having unsupervised contact with young boys, except for family members, and placed on the sex offenders register for life.
