A mother was arrested on a charge of rape after holding down her own daughter so that her boyfriend could rape her, police in Australia said.
Now, the 36-year-old mother of Queensland, who was not identified, has been sentenced to serve seven years in prison after being convicted of two counts of rape.
The boyfriend, who was not identified, was also sentenced to serve seven years in jail after being convicted of two counts of rape.
According to the police investigation, as the 14-year-old girl was sleeping in her mother’s bed, she whispered into her ear, saying that her boyfriend wanted to have sex with her.
After the girl refused, the mother held her down as the boyfriend pulled off her clothes and raped her. After having sex with the girl twice, the couple threatened her with violence if she told anybody about the abuse.
