Woman found guilty of sexually abusing young girls

A woman has been found guilty of sexually assaulting two young girls.
Emma Kent, 29, was convicted of three counts of sexual assault and two counts of engaging in sexual activity in the presence of a child at Liverpool Crown Court today.
But Kent’s partner, 47-year-old Jacqueline Horton, was cleared by a jury after a day and a half of deliberations.
During the trial Martine Snowdon, prosecuting, told the jury the alleged offences came to light when the children confided in an adult, who contacted the police.
The offences took place at an address in New Brighton .
Kent, of no fixed-address, will now be sentenced on October 24 after the case was adjourned for a pre-sentence report.
The pair had also been accused of using sex toys in the presence of the girls but the jury acquitted both women of that allegation.
During the trial, the older victim said Kent would put both her and the younger girl’s hands on her own breasts.

When arrested by police, Kent and Horton denied that anything sexual as described by the girls took place.
In her evidence Kent claimed she gave the girls cuddles but never referred to these as a “special cuddle” and that neither her nor Horton were never naked with them.
She denied ever putting the girls’ hands on her breasts, but said they would sometimes touch them, and once pulled down her top, causing Horton to shout at them.
