BRILLIANT, Ohio — Police have arrested a woman they say let a man have sex with her 14-year-old daughter in exchange for money and crack cocaine.

The 46-year-old woman is charged with compelling prostitution of a minor and complicity to unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

Police Capt. Sean Norman says a 21-year-old man living with the mother and daughter told investigators the woman allowed him to have sex with the girl and demanded cash.

Police believe the woman began allowing men to have sex with her daughter for cocaine and money four years ago, when the girl was 10.

The mother told police she caught her 42-year-old boyfriend about four years ago having sex with her daughter, who was then 10-years old, Norman said.

The mother said she allowed the sex to continue in exchange for crack cocaine, he said.

The mother, who is being held at the county jail, also has been charged with probation violation.
