A Brisbane mother who allowed her live-in partner to sexually abuse her two teenage daughters, under the pretext of teaching them all about sex and protecting them from sex offenders, pleaded guilty to her own child sex offences.
The 43-year-old woman was charged with two counts of indecent treatment of a child - namely her own daughter at Forest Lake, west of Brisbane, between May 1 and August 31, 2008.
The woman who cannot be named under Queensland law in order not to identify the victim, has willfully exposed her daughter to an offensive act and filthy film, Judge Michael Rackemann was told.
The woman’s lawyers requested that the hearing be adjourned briefly so as they could have her psychologically assessed.
Guilty pleas of the woman come a month after a District Court jury found her partner guilty of various charges of sexually molesting his two stepdaughters. The 51-year-old stepfather had pleaded not guilty to 23 sex offenses, plus two counts of maintaining a sexual relationship with a child under 16 and 13 of rape, between March 20, 2005 and October 8, 2008.
The de-facto husband of the woman is currently in custody and is awaiting sentence in June. The mother was granted bail ahead of sentencing later this week.
