A South African court has sentenced a 51 year old woman for giving a 65 year old man permission to engage in sexual activities with her then 12-year-old daughter in exchange for money.
According to the South African Police Services, the money which was collected from the sexual activities of her daughter was used for buying alcohol as it is alledged that she is a drunkard.
The solicitation began in 2012, the time her daughter was only 10 years old and she was arrested in 2014.
“Preying on, coercing, and forcing an innocent child into a world of sex is simply despicable and will not be tolerated,” said Liutenant General Mthandazo Ntlemeza, the National head for the Directorate for Priority Crime.
The man has been given a life sentence behind bars with hard labour, while the woman has received five years for the prostitution of her underage daughter.
