Monster mom continued to live with boyfriend who repeatedly assaulted and impregnated her 10-year-old daughter
The Indiana woman admitted to charges that she let her 34-year-old boyfriend Nicholas Deon Thrash molest her daughter, leaving the child pregnant at age 10
A 33-year-old mother from Indiana on Tuesday admitted to charges that she let her boyfriend molest her daughter resulting in the then-10-year-old girl's unplanned pregnancy.
The Marion woman has now pleaded guilty to charges of aiding child molesting, neglect, and assisting a criminal. She skipped a trial and accepted a sentence of a prison sentence of 20 years followed by five years of probation, Fox News reports.
The identities of both the mother and child were not revealed for legal reasons. However, the mother's boyfriend was identified as 34-year-old Nicholas Deon Thrash.
Deputy Grant County Prosecutor Lisa Glancy said, "We were certainly ready to go to trial in a few weeks, but the emotional and psychological toll would have been significantly more (for this trial) than the Thrash trial."
Nicholas Deon Thrash was sentenced to 160 years in prison last week after being convicted of 10 counts of child molesting. According to the victim's testimony, Thrash had molested her for a staggering 15 times or more.
According to the Chronicle-Tribune of Marion, Indiana, the mother admitted her daughter complained to her about Thrash repeatedly molesting her but she chose to continue living with him.
Shockingly, she also instructed her daughter to say it was a classmate who got her pregnant when she discovered her growing bump as she tried on dresses for a school dance, per multiple reports. Authorities were not notified of the ongoing molestation nor the pregnancy that followed.
That said, the mother has been disallowed from having any contact with her now 12-year-old daughter until a counselor “deems it appropriate", per the woman's plea deal.
Prosecutors were satisfied with the plea deal as it meant the girl wouldn't have to suffer the emotional and psychological toll of having to testify against her own mother during the trial, which would have started in a few weeks, Daily Mail reports.
However, Thrash lied throughout his trial that he did not impregnate the 10-year-old and claimed her mother "artificially inseminated her own daughter with his sperm."
The victim turned 11 in 2017 and gave birth to a baby boy in September that year, prosecutors told Fox59 Indianapolis. The infant was subsequently given up for adoption, while the girl was sent to a foster home.
"She's doing better. That's all that we can hope for right now. She's at a really good place," Glancy said.
