A Welsh mother was sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to making videos of her and her 14-year-old son having sex.

The 36-year-old woman, whose name has been withheld for legal reasons, sent the videos, along with naked images of her three-year-old daughter, to her cousin in Pakistan, The Sun reported.

Prosecutor Ian Kolvin called the videos “truly shocking.”

Kolvin told Merthyr Tydfil Crown Court, “Under instructions she gave him they are seen having sexual intercourse.”

Kolvin said the mother of four asked by her cousin to record the videos. The images were discovered when the woman’s 13-year-old daughter borrowed her brother’s phone then forwarded the images to her father, who turned them over to police, according to the report.

Lawyers for the woman maintained that cultural differences as well as a life of abuse were at the heart of her actions.

“She lives in a male-dominated society, she did what she was told,” defense attorney Ruth Smith told the court. She did not want to cause conflict and did not want to bring shame on her family for fear she would be cut off and ostracized by them. She felt she could not see a way out of the dilemma.”

In a statement to the court, the son who appeared in the videos said he regrets the decision.

“I feel upset and ashamed of what she did,” he said. “She should not have done it but I miss her very much.”
