A Texas mother has been arrested for allegedly having sexual relations with her 8-year-old daughter and also is accused of trying to sell the girl for sex, the Longview News-Journal reports.
Authorities say 44-year-old Carrie Songer (Sue) Kelly told a Nebraska man last year that he could have sex with her daughter in exchange for $100. In December, the man contacted police in Wayne, Nebraska, to report that a woman had offered the girl for sex.
The man had been using the apps MeetMe and KIK to communicate with Kelly, whose username was “CKelly74.”
He subsequently let an undercover police officer talk with Kelly, during which time she continued to discuss offering her daughter for sex in exchange for money. According to an arrest warrant obtained by KETK-TV, Nebraska police later ascertained where Kelly live and notified police in Longview, Texas, about a possible sex trafficking situation there.
Investigators contacted child protective services and confirmed that Kelly had a daughter and also had connections to other children. In late December, Kelly had agreed to meet an undercover police officer in Longview so she and the child could provide sexual favors, but Kelly didn’t show up to the meeting.
But her communications with the undercover officer continued and grew more disturbing. She claimed she had acquired child pornography and had also participated in the sexual abuse of children.
Local police in January swooped in and located Kelly at a school, at which point she admitted to offering her daughter for sex.
Child protective services took custody of Kelly’s kids and police confiscated her phone, on which investigators later discovered explicit videos of Kelly having sex with the 8-year-old girl, according to the News-Journal.
Kelly was booked into jail Thursday on a $200,00 bond.
