An Indiana woman on Tuesday admitted to charges that she allowed her boyfriend to molest her daughter, to the then 10-year-old pregnancy.
The 33-year-old woman, of Marion, pled guilty to charges of neglect, aiding and abetting child murder and assisting a criminal. They avoid a trial by accepting a sentence of 20 years in prison and five years of probation.
“We are definitely ready to go to trial in a few weeks, but the emotional and psychological toll would be significantly more (for this research) than the Thrash test,” Deputy Grant County prosecutor Lisa Glancy said.
The woman’s boyfriend, 34-year-old Nicholas Deon Thrash, was convicted of 10 counts of child molesting and sentenced last week to 160 years in prison. The victim, who was not named, testified Thrash had abused her at least 15 times.
The mother admitted her daughter told her Thrash was killing her, but she continued to live with him, the Chronicle-Tribune of Marion, Ind., reported. They reportedly gave the daughter to say that a classmate impregnated her. Neither the parent nor the pregnancy was reported to the police.
A part of the woman plea required that she have no contact with her 12-year-old daughter to a counselor gives permission. The Associated Press has in the name of the woman to protect the identity of the girl.
Prosecutors told FOX59 in Indianapolis that the girl, after the run of 11, gave birth to a boy in September 2017. The baby was given up for adoption, while the girl now resides in a foster home.
“She’s doing better. That is all we can hope for now. She is in a good place,” Glancy said.
