The court heard that the abuse started when she kissed and hugged the boy, but quickly escalated when she told him to put his hands in her pants.
Later, a teacher found Yates lying in some bushes with the victim, reports Derbyshire Live.
Yates was convicted of three cases of sexual assault on a child under the age of 13, two cases of incitement to s*xual activity under the age of 13 and one case of kidnapping a child.
She was raised by a series of sexual assaults on a child and a series of incentives for a child to have s*xual activity.
Judge Robert Egbuna postponed his sentencing until April 19 in order to read an updated statement on the victim’s implications.
Yates, of Woodville, Derbyshire, was arrested.
Prosecutor Andrew Vout told the court that the crimes occurred in 2017 while Yates and the boy were living in Derby.
Mr. Vout said: “Let’s say she treated him and had sexual contact with him. He says there has been no sexual contact. She is lying.
She asked him not to go to school and encouraged him to meet her and rewarded him with sweets and drinks.
“She met him in a field near her school and encouraged him to kiss and touch her.
“She put her hands on her pants and touched him (sexually).
She “asked her to do the same, she would give him money, candy and chips.
The Derby Safe and Sound charity supported the boy after Yates was arrested.
Executive Director Tracy Harrison said: “I want to especially congratulate this guy for his bravery in revealing what happened.
“It was clear from the beginning that he was willing to believe that this was a healthy and normal relationship, and our expert advisor had to deal with it with care and sensitivity.
“His confusion of him about what happened shows the complex manipulation with which children and young people are threatened in our local communities.”
Ms. Harrison added: “This case highlights that child exploitation can affect any girl or boy, regardless of her position, marital status, cultural or social origin.
Likewise, the perpetrators can be men or women, act individually or in groups and come from all walks of life.
