(Scroll down for video) A woman found a way to get her drugs without paying for them.

The drug addicted mother of Ohio, is accused of handing over her 11-year-old daughter to a drug dealer for sex in exchange for heroin.

30-year-old April Corcoran was indicted on 27 felony charges, including complicity in rape, complicity in gross sexual imposition, endangering children and human trafficking.

Authorities said that Corcoran also forcibly injected heroin into her daughter.

Prosecutors said that Corcoran of Pleasant Plain, would drop off her 11-year-old daughter at the house of accused drug trafficker Shandell Willingham, 41, and picked her up when he was done with her.

Willingham was charged with 26 felony counts, including rape, trafficking and for allegedly recording the sex crimes against the victim.

Authorities learned about the alleged crimes when the girl finally mustered up the courage and told her father and stepmother about it. The girl is now in her fatherā€™s custody.

Corcoran and Willingham could face life in prison if convicted, according to the Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters.

ā€œInstead of protecting her daughter, the mother saw her as a way to get drugs,ā€ Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said.

Bail for Corcoran was set at $5 million.
