A Georgia woman who allowed multiple men to rape her two young daughters in exchange for money was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison and 10 years probation, reports WXIA.
25-year-old Morgan Summerlin faced a total of 140 years in prison on counts of enticing a child for indecent purposes, trafficking a person for sexual servitude, and first-degree cruelty to children. She will not be eligible for parole.
The woman, who pleaded guilty in May, was seen blowing kisses to family members as she was escorted out of the courtroom, according to WXIA.
Summerlin’s two daughters, who were 5 and 6 years old at the time of the crimes, told investigators that their mother took them to the home of a 78-year-old Palmetto man, Richard Office, where he subsequently abused them.
The little girls said when Office, whom they referred to as “Pop,” was finished assaulting them, he would give them each cash, which Summerlin then collected.
According to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, “Pop” also provided their mom with drugs.
In May, Office was found guilty of rape, trafficking a person for sexual servitude, enticing a child for indecent purposes, sexual battery, and child molestation. He received a life sentence in prison for the despicable acts, no possibility of parole, and an additional 146 years.
A second abuser, Alfredo Trejo, was previously convicted in February for “raping and molesting the girls in the same manner,” the DA’s office reports. He was found guilty on charges of rape, child molestation, sexual battery, and aggravated child molestation. Trejo was sentenced to 25 years in prison along with lifetime probation.
Also charged in the case is the children’s grandmother. Teresa Davidson. She was sentenced to five years in prison, with one already served, on charges of cruelty to children after failing to protect the children after they told her of the abuse.
“It is difficult to imagine facts that are more horrific than those found in this case. I am hoping these two little girls can somehow survive this abuse and grow into healthy adults who can lead a productive and fulfilling life,” Fulton County District Attorney Paul L. Howard, Jr. said in a statement, according to Oxygen.
