A 60-year-old Burton woman has admitted sexual offences involving a schoolboy which happened 40 years ago.
Margaret Howard pleaded guilty to two charges relating to a boy under 14 when she appeared at Stafford Crown Court.
A basis of plea was submitted to the crown court in connection with the offences which are said to have been committed between August, 1977 and August, 1978.
The basis was not accepted by the prosecution and a trial of issue will be heard on September 22 when a judge will determine the facts of the case before passing sentence.
Howard, of Oak Street, Burton, was allowed bail and is due to return to the crown court on September 22.
