Nursery worker Leah Cordice had been out drinking for an evening before she had gone into the boy victim’s room where he was playing on his Xbox.

There she seduced him by pulling his trousers down and begging for sex, the judge was told.

According to the Sun, Cordice was convicted by a jury of having sex with the child on at least five occasions and appeared in Reading Crown Court for sentencing this afternoon.

Judge Peter Clarke QC, said: “Cordice asserted that the truth was that she had been raped by the victim on multiple occasions.

“It has understandably been urged on the court that psychiatric examination has found Cordice to be of borderline intellectual ability with an IQ of 70 to 85. I had and have difficulty with that assessment.

“Cordice gave evidence. She was clear in chief and she was combative and agile in cross-examination. At one stage I had no alternative but to warn her that she was doing herself a disservice in her interaction with prosecution counsel. Suffice it to say she showed no remorse for the events.

“Indeed I heard no indication from either Cordice or the victim that she held him in any particular affection, the evidence from at least one witness was of physical obsession and self-indulgence as opposed to emotional attachment.”

In a victim impact statement, the boy said he had been diagnosed with separation anxiety by a psychologist, which was a result of him having his child taken away by social services.

The boy told the court: “I cannot see my child and have not had any involvement with her recently. Seeing my daughter and then having her taken out of my life was very hard to cope with.

During a trial, the court heard how Cordice first had sex with the boy in 2017 after pulling down his trousers while he was playing video games.

They then met up twice a month for sex as Cordice would babysit the boy while his mum worked late.

She sent him a barrage of messages complaining he didn’t speak to her enough and praised his “cute” social media pictures.

Cordice would also give him £10 to buy fish and chips and accused him of ignoring her as she vied for his attention.

One message read: “I want to talk to you. I want a conversation.

“You do not talk to me. You are always acting blunt with me. I just want our friendship back.

“Your profile picture is cute by the way. It is cute.”

Even after Cordice’s husband, Daniel Robbins, discovered what was happening and confronted the boy, the sex continued.

The abuse was rumbled when the boy’s mum was told she could be a grandma and she contacted social services.

Cordice refused a DNA test but it was eventually carried out after an order was granted by the Family Court.

The test found it was 14 million times more likely than not the 13-year-old boy was the father.

Cordice’s husband Daniel had at first believed Cordice’s baby was his.

On finding out, he told the Sun: “It hurts like hell. I had an amazing life.

“Everything was going so well. I had a secure job, a nice place, a good relationship and a beautiful daughter. All of a sudden, everything I cherished was taken away — my child, my wife, my home, my job.

“What do I have left? It’s heartbreaking.”
