A couple was arrested and charged with child rape after they allegedly engaged in raping a 3-year-old girl, according to court proceedings in Michigan.

A Jackson man, 28, pleaded guilty on Tuesday, to two counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree for repeatedly sexually assaulting his 3-year-old daughter.

His crimes are punishable by up to life imprison.

Jackson County Circuit Judge John McBain will sentence the man in two months.

The man admitted to participating in sexual conduct with the girl while living with her and her mother at the Avalon Hotel in Blackman Township. His wife helped him with the abuse, he told the judge.

As part of the plea agreement, the man will testify against his wife.

The woman, 36, is charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct in the first degree.
Police arrested her in August.

The woman admitted to police to helping her husband rape the girl.

She said she held her daughter’s hand so that it would not hurt that much. The state is seeking to terminate her parental rights to her daughter and the rights to her two other children, ages 6 and 8.

She is in the county jail and the children are no longer under her care.

Her husband admitted to having sex with the girl at least six times.

He showered with the girl, touched her inappropriately, took pictures with her for sexual satisfaction and watched child pornography with her.

In exchange for the man’s guilty plea, the prosecutor’s office agreed to drop 10 other charges.
