Girlfriend of convicted pedophile admits she allowed him to sexually assault her 10-year-old little girl repeatedly, who ended up pregnant

On Tuesday, an Indiana woman confessed to allowing her convicted pedophile boyfriend access to her young daughter, even allowing him to live in her home and carry out sick acts on the little girl after she found out he’d been molesting her.

FOX News reports that the unnamed woman, 33, admitted she allowed her boyfriend, 34-year-old Nicholas Deon Thrash, to live with her after her young daughter told her the man sexually assaulted her. The girl, 10 at the time, ended up pregnant, according to court documents. In September 2017, the little girl gave birth to a baby boy.

The mother is accused of telling the girl to say a classmate got her pregnant. No one in the family reported the pregnancy to the police, nor did anyone turn Thrash in for assaulting the girl.

Thrash received a sentence of 160 years in prison last Thursday on convictions of 10 counts of child molestation. A probable cause report stated he started molesting the girl when she was 8, forcing her to have sex with him while he lived with her and the mother in their Georgia home. They eventually moved to Indiana where the abuse continued.

Officers with Indiana’s Marion Police Department told the court that child social workers in Georgia were alerted to possible abuse. Police apparently opened an investigation and found male DNA on the victim’s underwear. Georgia authorities began looking for Thrash but they fled to Indiana before he was apprehended.

Prior to moving to Indiana, the mother signed a “safety plan” which required her to keep her child away from Thrash at all times. Further, she admitted she lied to both Georgia and Indiana police about Thrash’s whereabouts.

While in Indiana, the little girl’s mother took her to an abortion clinic once she learned of the pregnancy. The clinic refused to perform the procedure, according to court documents. A group of protestors reportedly saw the child at the clinic and reported the incident to police.

Thrash denied any kind of sexual involvement with the victim, even claiming the girl’s mother set him up by “artificially inseminating” the girl after she took his sperm. The jury disagreed. Thrash must serve at least 85% of his sentence before release.

“Obviously, I am extremely pleased with the sentence,” Grant County Chief Deputy Prosecutor Lisa Glancy told The Washington Post. “One-hundred-and-sixty years is what I asked for. Based on the facts and the egregious nature of the crime, I thought it was warranted. I am pleased for the child.”

The child’s mother was sentenced to serve 20 years behind bars as part of a plea deal she agreed to. Her name has been withheld to protect the identity of the child.

“We were certainly ready to go to trial in a few weeks, but the emotional and psychological toll would have been significantly more (for this trial) than the Thrash trial,” Glancy added, referring to the woman’s plea deal.

The victim, now 12,  is currently in foster care. Her mother cannot contact her until the little girl’s counselor “deems it appropriate.” The baby she gave birth was placed for adoption.
