A mum who was cleared after standing trial for having sex with a 14-year-old boy has posted a furious rant blaming the teen and claiming he lied about his age.
Teah Vincent, 32, slammed "stupid" people judging her over the incident after she was found not guilty of knowingly having sex with an underage boy.
Mum-of-three Teah wept as jurors cleared her after evidence emerged in the trial around the boy giving a false date of birth on his Facebook profile.
She told the court she had initiated sex with the boy at her home in Gloucestershire, but thought he was over 16.
The jury was told the teen and a friend of his were playing football nearby when Ms Vincent saw them and invited them in for a soft drink on October 21, 2018.
Ms Vincent claimed the boy flirted with her before she took one of them to her upstairs bedroom and pulled him onto her bed, Gloucester Crown Court heard.
A jury of eight men and four women took just one hour to find her not guilty of knowingly having sex with an underage boy.
Ms Vincent has since spoken to reporters about the incident and said the last two years have been the "hardest" of her life.
She also said she is not a bad mum and has since been unfairly targeted by online trolls.
In an explosive rant on her social media, Ms Vincent wrote: "Are you people actually that sad. People getting paid to spread c*** about me and I'm so bored now of hearing it.
"If it was the other way around it would be different. I wasn't the one lying for a bloody start.
"For one I'm not denying what I did was my best choice but if the guy didn't lie to me I wouldn't be in this situation with silly gullible people around the world having their two pence peace put in."
She added: "I'm not guilty of what I've got accused of and I'm really tired and bored of you stupid people judging me on my life and actually trying to roll me about it.
"If only you knew the HALF of it about what happened that night and the information on the liar that accused me you wouldn't be so judgemental.
"Would love to put a few points out there that would change a lot of your thoughts but I'm gunna keep letting you sad, sad people keep making money out of story which isn't even true and a story which half of it is bulls***."
Ms Vincent was cleared after the boy was recalled to the witness box where he told the court he entered the wrong birthday on Facebook.

He had entered the year 2000 on Facebook after he was given a new phone a week before his 13th birthday.
The teen told the court he had chosen a false date of birth due to Facebook's minimum age requirement of 13.
He denied telling Ms Vincent that he was 16 and told the court: "I definitely did not tell her I was 16 going on 17."
Ms Vincent told jurors: "I'm sure he told me he was 16 and I felt he looked much older.
"It didn't occur to me that he might be underage
"He definitely didn't tell me he was in Year 9, or that he was only 14, before we had sex."
Defending, Caroline Flit, asked: "Can you be sure he told her she was 14 before they had sex or had he lied about his age?"
