A WOMAN who admitted indecently assaulting a teenage boy could face prison, a court heard.

Shirley Anne Allen, 53, of Stuart Avenue, Richmond, North Yorkshire, admitted two charges of indecent assault between 1995 and 1997 at Teesside Crown Court yesterday.

Judge David Bryant ordered that a charge of indecent assault faced by her husband, James Leslie Allen, 58, of the same address, should lie on the file.

The judge also ordered that a pre-sentence report should be made on Mrs Allen, who has no previous convictions.

He warned Mrs Allen that although he was adjourning the case for a report to be made, all sentencing options would remain open.

Mrs Allen was released on conditional bail to return to be sentenced
