Neb. mother gets more time for prostituting girls

Source: AP

FRANKLIN, Neb. (AP) — A mother convicted of prostituting her 7- and 14-year-old daughters using online ads across south-central Nebraska has received up to 60 more years in prison in her last round of sentencing.

The 36-year-old woman was sentenced Thursday for nine charges in Franklin relating to the prostitution of the girls, the Kearney Hub reported (http://bit.ly/WWuOO1).

The woman already had been sentenced to several decades in prison for similar charges in other counties. In January, she was sentenced in Buffalo County to 80 to 90 years in prison. She garnered an additional 20 years from Furnas County District Court earlier this week.

The Associated Press is not using the woman’s name to protect the identity of the girls. The AP does not usually identify victims of sex crimes.

On Thursday, the woman was sentenced to 40 to 50 years on each of five counts of visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct. She also was sentenced to 25 to 30 years for each of two counts of human trafficking and five years for each of two counts of child abuse. Many of the sentences issued Thursday are to be served at the same time.

1. The crime here

should also belong to the men who were "customers". I don't think it is difficult to distinguish a 7 and 14 year old from grown women.

8. It's no different than the Catholic Church hierarchy shielding pedophiles

And relocating them to other states and nations where they abused more children.

And yet they received no punishment at all for those actions that were done over more than 40 years.

And they are allowed to tell women what they can and cannot do related to insurance health coverage.

But it's all good because they're a wealthy institution.

10. Really?

A mother directly offering her children to grown men for sex is no different from the Catholic Church which did not directly offer children it its parish for sex?

I am not defending the Catholic Church, but its actions would be more akin to a parole officer turning a blind eye to a pedophile's activity than to the the mother's role as pimp for her daughters (directly offering her children as prostitutes, and enforcing their activity as prostitutes by asserting economic or physical control over them). Reprehensible, yes, but not the same as the much more direct actions of either the pedophile or the pimp.

11. The Church DIRECTLY put pedophiles into contact with children

by relocating them to other districts.

This happened. Children in those other districts were abused AFTER the church knew someone was a pedophile.

So, yes, it's the same thing.

13. The church did not force the children to serve as prostitutes

It did not even exercise direct control over the sexual activity of the priests. It did turn a blind eye and, in many instances, put priests in a position in other districts rather than removing them from their duties or even warning people in the new church of the history. And, as I said, that is reprehensible.

But it is still not the same as forcing your child to serve as a prostitute.

46. It really isn't.

The church (as opposed to the individual priest) did not, and does not have the ability to, force the child into sexual activity. The mother did. Direct force is very different than deliberate indifference.

48. A lot of these priests passed kids from one to another. Its the same. These priests were passed by..

the chirch to other parishes where the behavior was repeated. Its the same. Force is not just strong arm, its also manipulation and intimidation and lies and deceit. Its the same.

51. You are right about force

But the relationship is different.

The mother had direct control over the children and could assert force in variety of different ways if they did not cooperate with her offer of them for prostitution.

The Catholic Church did not have direct control over the children.

To the extent that priests passed children from one to another, that is a much closer comparison - the nature of an abusive relationship is that there is very similar level of control to that of a parent. So I'll buy that the priests who were passing children around were close enough to the mother's role that it is a distinction without a difference.

But the church, itself, is a step removed, and that is a real difference.

49. it is not the same.

Parents are the one or two people in the world on which babies and children are totally dependent for life, and the absolutely closest to you. When you are betrayed by a parent it is far, far worse than ever being betrayed by another member of the immediate family, never mind being betrayed by an outside to the immediate family.

When you cannot trust your mother to protect and care for you, than you cannot trust *anybody* to do so, including yourself.

What the Church did and continues to do is reprehensible. But to the betrayed child, it is not the same as if their own parent pimped them out.

26. Had to have known

is different from forcing the activity.

It is like saying that the actions of mother who "had to have known" were the same as the actions of father who raped his daughter.

(Not to mention the very different relationship between a parent and child from the church - parishioner relationship.)

Again - not excusing the actions of the Catholic Church one bit. But they are not the same.

The Church's actions were terrible, but I doubt ANYTHING compares

to the betrayal of children by either of their parents.

I am in no way cheering or accepting what happens to men accused of sex crimes even in County, before they every even see Prison. But it happens, even while in PC.

My friend's friend saw a 19 year old that looked 16 get brutally beaten because his charge sheet said "Annoying a minor" or something along those lines.

I'm all in favor of the mother rotting in jail for the rest of her life. But it appears these are the same charges brought up in multiple counties. Are they separate incidents, or the same crime prosecuted in multiple locales? I'd hate to see her get out on a technicality...

34. I believe they are separate incidents, therefore they are separate charges

The article indicated that some of the charges are being served concurrently, but I would think that would be the charges within each jurisdiction. Usually (but not always) that means when the defendant finishes serving the sentence for one country, they begin serving the charges for the next one. She'll be in state prison given how long she has to serve.

Note: I am not sure how different Nebraska is from other states in their criminal system, the information I have given is based on Oregon's system.

What grounds she would use and the strategy are beyond my knowledge. I would guess she's not going to have any luck with those given the nature of the crime she committed.

The GAL and the judge should have had knowledge of these activities, where was their support and protection of these children?/ I have seen cases, such as this, where the children were treated at State facilities for sexual abuse, and placed back in the sexually abusive Mothers home after treatment!! Why are mothers such as tthis protected?? Do they SHARE with the judge and GAL?????
