Nicola Fox, who was jailed for luring a 13-year-old boy into her home and forcing him to have sex with her, came “face to face” with the concerned mum of a seven-year-old boy on Monday.
The 35-year-old was jailed for four years after she pinned the boy down and forced him to have sex with her – but is now back on Hull’s streets.
She lured the youngster into her west Hull home in September 2017 by saying she wanted a “chat”.
Then when he tried to leave, she closed the curtains and pulled him onto her bed in the room that also served as her living room.
The boy stood to leave again, but she “slammed” the door shut, then put a table up against it and forced him to have sex.
Now out on licence and living in east Hull, just minutes from a primary school, a mum also living there has spoken out on her fright and anger.
“I saw Nicola Fox yesterday on my street face to face and couldn’t believe that it was her,” she said.
“I read all about what she did to that poor boy and I can’t believe that they’ve let her out of prison and put her down a street with kids.
“She is living directly opposite a woman with teenage son that she could prey on – she shouldn’t be living down here.
“I won’t dare let him out on his own now that she’s here – I’m not letting him out of my sight.”
She added: “I’m angry and scared for the safety of my seven-year-old son with her around and I know once the other neighbours find out that she’s living here, there’s going to be absolute uproar.
“Fifty per cent of the street have got kids. I want her off the street. She’s attacked a child once and trapped him in a room and she’ll do it again.
“There’s a primary school at the top of the school and so many vulnerable kids there too that she’s living near.
“I want her out immediately as she’s a danger to all the children that live around here and needs moving on.”
A lack of remorse
A sentencing hearing Hull Crown Court was told that the 13-year-old was so traumatised as Fox “pinned him down to the bed using her weight”, that he cried.
She became “annoyed” and “aggressive” and told him to stop.
But Fox didn’t stop, carrying on for five or ten minutes until she had got what she wanted.
Far from any feelings of regret, remorse or concern for her victim, she then repeatedly taunted him that if he told anyone she “would say he wanted it” and consented.
The Ministry of Justice declined to comment.
Watch: The criminals locked up in September
Nicola Fox liked to portray herself as a carefree party animal, but beneath the brash exterior was a sexual predator who stole a young boy’s innocence.
The victim described his fear of future relationships and become socially isolated.
He was left “angry” she took his first sexual experiences away from him in such an awful and demeaning way.
He even showed Fox the “dignity” she denied him, by refusing to use violence to get her off because he did not want to hurt a woman.
Fox, 33, admitted sexual activity with a child and was jailed for four years at Hull Crown Court in October 2017.
But she seemed entirely unrepentant as she sat in the dock, often shaking her head as her shocking crime was described.
She was said to be suffering “profound” mental health problems at the time and had been hearing “voices”, but offered no explanation for what she had done.
Appeal to keep young people safe
After the hearing, a leading children’s charity issued an appeal for increased vigilance to keep young people safe.
A spokesman for the NSPCC said: “Fox took advantage of a 13 year old boy who cannot give consent at such a young age.
“Child sex offenders can be anyone. And it’s important we have conversations with young people about healthy relationships and helping them protect themselves against the dangers of the online world as we would those in the real one.
“Children who need advice and support can contact Childline 24 hours a day in confidence on 0800 1111.
“Adults with concerns about children’s wellbeing can contact the NSPCC Helpline on 0808 800 5000.”
