Jail for Portsmouth area son who groped and kissed pensioner mother
A SON has been jailed for sexually assaulting his own pensioner mother in a drunken
Portsmouth Crown Court heard the man, 27, was drunk when he put the woman, in her 60s, in a headlock and groped her right breast before making ‘unpleasant remarks’.
The court heard the man, from the wider Portsmouth area, had been on a five-day bender when he launched the assault.
He also kissed his mother on the face – a completely unwanted move with her still in a headlock during the incident earlier this year.
‘He was clearly drunk,’ prosecutor Richard Cherrill said.
Mr Cherrill also revealed the man had earlier been handed a suspended for an earlier sexual assault on a woman he did not know.
Recorder Michael Bromley-Martin QC jailed him for 17 months.
He must sign the sex offenders’ register and be subjected to a sexual harm prevention order for 10 years.
The court heard he had a number of mental health problems.
He admitted two charges of sexual assault on his mother, who cannot be named for legal reasons.
