A Dallas woman is accused of forcing her 6-year-old daughter to record her having group sex repeatedly in recent months, according to police documents.
The 24-year-old woman was in the Dallas County Jail on Monday on a third-degree felony charge of indecency with a child, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Her bail was set at $50,000.
The names of the woman and her daughter are being withheld because The Dallas Morning News
typically does not identify victims of sexual crimes. Identifying the mother might inadvertently lead to identification of the daughter.
A tip lead police on Saturday to a northwest Dallas apartment, where the mother lives. Officers arrived at the complex near Harry Hines Boulevard and Walnut Hill Lane about 5:15 p.m. and were told that the woman had forced her daughter to film her having sex with several men at the same time.
In an interview at the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center, the girl “detailed filming and taking photographs” of her mother engaged in sexual acts with men, the documents said.
In an interview at Jack Evans Police Headquarters, the mother admitted to having her daughter record her having sex with men.
The woman “explained that there were three separate incidents involving six men” that her daughter recorded, the documents said. The encounters dated from March to this month, according to police.
The mother added that “it was her idea to have [her daughter] make the recordings with a cellphone
video recorder,” the documents said.
A public defender listed as the attorney of record for the mother did not return a call seeking comment.
It is unclear if the identities of the men involved are known. Dallas police
officials declined to comment Monday because the investigation is ongoing.
Child Protective Services placed the child in foster care and is conducting its own investigation. The girl is physically OK, CPS spokeswoman Marissa Gonzales said.
This is at least the second time the agency has had contact with the mother. She was also investigated around the time her daughter was born because of concerns that the woman may have been using drugs, Gonzales said.
Neither the mother nor the baby tested positive for any drugs and that case was closed in 2004, Gonzales said.
