What kind of mother would do this?

August 4, 2007 9:18pm CST
I really think that I've read about the lowest of the low. A local woman in my town was arrested yesterday for selling her teenage daughter's 'services' to pay her bills! The man to whom she was pimping the young girl pleaded guilty to 3rd degree rape. The mother was allowing the man access to the girl after he paid her bills. What kind of mother would do this? What do you think the punishment should be for the mother? The man?

I think the Mother should do some hard time!! She is not much of a mother and the man should also. He knew what was going on and went along with it. I hope they get the daughter the help she is going to need. It will haunt her the rest of her life.

Personally I think the mother and the man should be line up in the street and shot. Some may say that is a horrible thought, but I am really sick of this crap that is happening to kid's this friggin day and time. Just disgusting!

In my personal opinion, mothers like that should be made to service a large group of very drunk men. But, that's just my opinion.

I think they should throw the book at her, so to speak. You don't have a child so that they can do for you. A child is the parents' responsibility not the other way around. I hope they put the child into a good foster home and she has a chance to overcome the damage her mother has done. This woman isn't a mother. She may have given birth but she is obviously not a real mother and cares nothing really about her daughter. Of course, we don't know what the mother has gone through prior to this. It's possible that she learned that behavior from her parents. This could be somewhat of a generational thing. You never know.

No "real mother" would do this. A "real mother" would protect her child with her life not sell her like she was a posession! She should be sent to prison for the rest of her life as she has ruined her young daughter's life. As for the man, he is just as quilty as the mother is. He knew what he was doing and the cost should be life in prison as well. Sad story indeed. That poor girl will never forget what has happened to her. Being a virg*n is a prize possession and that has been taken away from her. She can never get it back.

A selfish ignorant woman, hardly a mother, just an incubator, I would guess. I think the man and woman should serve time handcuffed together, but that would be cruel and unusual punishment, I would suppose. Send them both to that sheriff in Arizona, that makes his prisoners live in tents.

Wow, how can someone call herself a mother and do something like that?! It just boggles the brain, I can't think of a punishment that fits this crime, but she should never see that child again. Which could only benefit the daughter. How old was she btw?

I think they should put the mother---if you call her that and the pimp, put them in the same sack and throw them over a bridge someplace. That is absolutely sickning. They both need to be punished severly.

First of all, that's horrible. Second of all, a mother like that, needs to have the kids removed from her custody, and she needs to spend some time in jail. She obviously doesn't have enough sense to care for them.

That poor girl will be scarred for life now. This is definitely low. I think the mother and the man should be locked up for life and have the key thrown away. Unfortunately this will probably not be the case.

Yes I think the world has become a very sad place, all decency seems to have been lost to the power of money, I think when it comes to this sort of thing it is sinking to the lowest form low, I think the world has hit rock bottom in ethics and I am so scared that it may never be able to recover, what is our future generations being left by us...very sad.

Very stiff penalty! But I fear they will get probation or little time in jail! Crimes against children often get pooh poohed in some courts in this country. It's very, very shocking.. and I believe society's price for this will be steep.

I had a friend in high school that was a product of something like this. Her mother was pimped out by her grandmother for a long time to all kinds of various men in a big vacation spot. The grandmother would hold her down if she needed to! She was 14 when she got pregnant with my friend and she never knew who the father was. Luckily she marrie da man who adopted my friend and raised ehr as his own. It's very sad that things like this happen. I don't know what kind of mother you would have to be to do something like that...not a very good or caring one that's for sure! I'm afraid what I would liek to see done to these people would not happen. They will get a slap on the wrist and be put on a list that doesn't do anything to protect innocent children from being harmed by them in the future.

This is absolutely sickening! The kind of mother who would do this is one with no conscious, and obviously no knowledge of an honest day's work. I understand being financially unstable, but to do such a thing to your own daughter, your own flesh and blood (or anyone, for that matter) is just absolutely vile. Both the man and the mother should be jailed for a very long time, and I hope that the daughter will go to a good home and receive the appropriate therapy etc. Just imagine the sort of moral code that poor girl will live by if she is not helped as soon as possible. It makes me sick just thinking of this case, please inform us when you know more about the prosecution etc. Thank you, Malyck.

Well, they both deserve to go to hell in my opinion, I think that would be justifying punishment than anything. I wouldn't hurt my baby girl like that at all. That woman could have done it herself than selling her daughter like that. That is so wrong and I hope her and that guy will pay for what they did to that poor little girl.
