Female paedophile jailed

A 35-year-old woman has been jailed for 22 years after being found guilty of the ‘horrific’ sexual abuse of two young boys.

Tanya Grundy, of Chesterfield Road North, Pleasley, in Mansfield, started to abuse one of the boys from the age of four, Nottingham Crown Court heard.

She denied a total of 26 offences, including 12 charges of gross indecency with a child, eight charges of causing a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity, four charges of indecent assault and two offences of sexual assault of a child under 13.

Following a seven-day trial, she was found guilty of all of the offences, which took place between the late 1990s and mid-2000s.

As well as the jail sentence, Grundy was placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register for life and was handed a Sexual Harm Prevention Order.
