DALLAS, Aug. 9 (UPI) — A Dallas woman was arrested for allegedly having her 6-year-old daughter repeatedly make video recordings of her having group sex, police say.
The 24-year-old woman was jailed Monday on charges of indecency with a child, which is punishable by as much as 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine, The Dallas Morning News reported.
The identities of the mother and child have not been released.
A tip led Dallas police to the woman’s apartment complex Saturday, where officers were told the woman forced her daughter to record her having sex with multiple men at the same time.
In an interview at the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center, the child “detailed filming and taking photographs” of her mother engaging in the sexual acts, police documents say.
The mother admitted having her daughter record her and “explained that there were three separate incidents involving six men” that her daughter recorded, beginning in March — adding that “it was her idea to have [her daughter] make the recordings with a cellphone video recorder,” the documents said.
Child Protective Services has placed the daughter in foster care and is investigating the matter. This is the second time CPS has been contacted about the mother, the newspaper said.
There had been concerns when the child was born that the woman was using drugs but neither she nor the child tested positive for drugs and the investigation was dropped in 2004.
