A mother is in trouble for sending nude photos of her daughters to their male teacher.
The 42-year-old woman of Australia, who has not been named to protect the identity of her girls, told the court that she had the girls’ best interest in mind when doing so.
The mother told the court that she sent indecent images of her daughters to their dance instructor to advance their careers.
The girls are both under 14 years old. The mother told the Sydney District Court, that she felt “ashamed and embarrassed” for sharing the illicit snapshots of her daughters with their male teacher.
The mother pleaded guilty to four counts of production and dissemination of child abuse material. “I have profound regret and sorrow for the pain I have caused my family,” the mother said in court.
40-year-old Grant Davies, who was the dance instructor, was also arrested. He is facing a series of allegations of child sexual abuse against his students.
The woman said that her daughters were afraid of Davies, whose students often performed in major productions and traveled abroad.
Davies, who appeared at a separate hearing, was accused of abusing at least 10 students in the last decade.
His dance studio has since been closed.
