The preteen was abused for two weeks before she confided in a relative

A mother in USA has been held guilty of abetting her 12-year-old daughter’s rape, says a report by The New Indian Express.

37-year-old Jeanie Mae Carpenter was given life sentence by Belmont County court for allegedly helping boyfriend James John Kirksey sexually abuse her daughter.

The report says the girl was abused for two weeks before she confided in a relative. 

The judge said that the case ‘was a crime against nature’. "If a 12-year-old girl cannot trust her mother to love and protect her, who in this world can she ever trust? She certainly wouldn't expect her mother to be assisting in the rape,” he was quoted as saying.
