A Texas mother is accused of allowing a man to sexually assault her 5-year-old daughter for $400.
Shirley Harmon, 36, was charged on Sunday with felony aggravated sexual assault of a child, according to Ector County Sheriff’s Office records.
Authorities arrested 62-year-old Gary Landreth on for aggravated sexual assault of a child.
Records show Landreth, who has a bond of $50,000, posted bail on Jan. 14.
According to the Odessa American, a sheriff’s office affidavit states that the abuse happened between 2017 and 2019.
Harmon was arrested March 4 for failing to report the alleged abuse. She admitted to investigators that, on multiple occasions, she allowed Landreth to inappropriately touch the 5-year-old while ignoring the girl’s cries, according to the paper.
Records show Harmon is being held on a $50,000 bond.
