A mum has been ordered to pay nearly £1,000 after neighbors complained about sex noises.
Kristin Morgan, 41, of Llay, Wrexham, pleaded guilty to four offenses but accused her son and his girlfriend of being behind the violence.
Care workers have angered neighbors after failing to comply with a council abatement order.
During the lockdown, those living around the family-of-four heard the loud noise and complained.
Morgan failed to comply with notices that the sounds coming from the bedroom of the house were clearly ‘love and talking’ in the early hours of the morning and late at night, the court heard.
Morgan’s retired father, son and teenage daughter lived at home.
Neighbors said they had repeatedly complained to the council because the noise was happening during the lockdown and some people were upset, Wrexham Magistrates’ Court heard.
They added that the family was given multiple warnings ‘but nothing happened’ as they continued to have loud sex between December 26, 2021, and April 4.
Her son Aled, 23, said the situation was a ‘nightmare’ and the family did not mean to upset anyone, the court heard.
Prosecutor Louise Edwards, of Wrexham Borough Council, said after an event at the home in July 2020, the authority first became aware of the issues.
Miss Edwards said neighbors had many tapes of noise issues at the house and despite warning letters, there were other complaints.
A law enforcement officer suggested that Morgan switch rooms with her son and his girlfriend but when he did so the noise continued so the neighbors installed security devices.
Miss Edwards said the noise monitor confirmed that loud ‘sexual activity’ sounds continued.
She added: ‘The residents were subjected to an unacceptable amount of noise for a period of time which they described as a traumatic experience which affected their health.
“They’re no longer happy in their home and they feel like they’re on the brink.”
Morgan, who represented herself in court, told the judge she was trying to save money to insulate her rundown home.
She was fined £300 and must also pay £534 in costs.
Morgan’s son also faces four offenses under the Environment Protection Act but his case has been adjourned in his absence until October.
