Morgan Summerlin, 25, would take her girls – aged five and six- to the homes of men where they’d be sexually abused in exchange for cash
A mum who allowed men to rape and molest her two young daughters blew kisses to family members as she was jailed for 20 years.
Morgan Summerlin, 25, would take her girls – aged five and six- to the homes of men where they’d be sexually abused in exchange for cash.
Summerlin admitted first degree cruelty to children, trafficking a person for sexual servitude, and enticing a child for indecent purposes in May.
She has now been sentenced to 20 years behind bars with another 10 on probation. Prosecutors said the mum will not be eligible for parole, USA Today reports.
As she was led out of the courtroom on Monday, Summerlin waved and blew kisses to relatives watching the sentencing.
The children are now in the care of a family member.
They had told police their mum would take them to men’s homes where they’d be molested and raped.
They said she took them to 78-year-old Richard Office’s house, who touched them inappropriately and raped one of them, Fulton County District Attorney’s Office in Georgia, US, told.
The sisters called Office ‘Pop,’ and he paid them $100 (£73.72) which they gave to their mother.
They knew him as a man who would give their mum drugs, Fulton County District Attorney’s Office said.
The girls said that in 2017 Office took them to his bedroom where he sexually abused them while their mum waited in the living room.
Office was convicted of rape, child molestation, sexual battery, enticing a child for indecent purposes, and trafficking a person for sexual servitude.
He is serving a life sentence in prison with no possibility of parole, and 146 years to run concurrently.
On another occasion, Summerlin took the kids to Alfredo Trejo’s house, who raped and molested them.
He also have them cash – which they passed on to their mum, WSVN reports.
Trejo was also convicted of rape, child molestation, sexual battery, enticing a child for indecent purposes, and trafficking a person for sexual servitude.
He is serving 25 years in prison, followed by life on probation.
The victims’ grandmother, Teresa Davidson, also previously pleaded guilty to cruelty to children (second degree) for failing to protect the sisters after they told her they were being sexually abused.
“She was sentenced to five years to serve one commuted to the time that she had already served, with the balance on probation,” the Attorney’s Office said.
After Summerlin pleaded guilty, Chief Senior Assitant District Attorney Irina Khasin said: “It is difficult to imagine facts that are more horrific than those found in this case.
“I am hoping these two little girls can somehow survive this abuse and grow into healthy adults who can lead a productive and fulfilling life.”
