Amanda Tomp­kins will now stand trial ac­cused of 13 counts of sex­ual and phys­i­cal abuse on seven vic­tims, all aged un­der 16.

The 38-year-old was ca­su­ally dressed in a black jacket, black trousers and white top when she ap­peared be­fore Judge Fran­cis Sheri­dan sit­ting at Ayles­bury Crown Court.

The mother, who told the court she does not work, will stand be­fore a judge and jury charged with one count of at­tempted sex­ual as­sault, one of sex­ual as­sault by touch­ing and five of sex­ual ac­tiv­ity with a child, which al­legedly in­volved re­peated oral and vagi­nal sex with four boys be­tween Fe­bru­ary 1 and 29 this year.

She was also ac­cused of two counts of sex­ual ac­tiv­ity with a child, sex­ual as­sault by touch­ing and at­tempt­ing to en­gage in sex­ual ac­tiv­ity with a child by touch­ing, in­volv­ing three other boys.

Tomp­kins, from Bletch­ley in Mil­ton Keynes, Bucks, was also charged with an at­tempt to sex­u­ally as­sault and one of com­mon as­sault, against one other boy.

She was re­leased on bail sub­ject to bans on con­tact­ing wit­nesses in the case and meet­ing any chil­dren aged un­der 18 years with­out parental or guardians’ con­sent.

A pre-trial re­view hear­ing at the court will be held on Jan­uary 23. IN COURT: Amanda Tomp­kins
