A mother was banned from having contact with her daughter after helping men rape her daughter.
The mother of Queensland, Australia, was charged with 17 offenses, including rape, torture and indecent treatment of a child.
The 37-year-old mother is accused of dressing her 9-year-old daughter in a Playboy Bunny dress and ears. She then tied the child up and allowed several of her male friends to rape the girl.
On some occasions, the child was forced to perform sex acts on the men and at other times, she was given a drink “to make her sleep” while the men had sex with her, according to court records.
The mother is also accused of having sex with two men in front of her daughter while allowing another man to rape the girl.
The mother who spent nearly three months at the Brisbane Women’s Correctional Centre, was granted bail this week, at the Southport Magistrates Court.
However, she was ordered to have no contact with her daughter or the witnesses, and she must report to a parole officer twice a week.
The mother’s attorney, Deanne Nicoloso, said that her client “is entitled to the presumption of innocence.”
