Mother Of Santa Barbara Teen Who Was Alleged Victim Of Multiple Sexual Abuse Incidents Arrested For Prostitution

Posted on Friday, June 15, 2012 10:19am

There’s been another twist in the investigation involving a Santa Barbara teenager police say was molested by three different men. The 13 year old girl’s mother has now been arrested on a prostitution charge.

Detectives visiting the victim’s home to investigate a possible fourth case of molestation involving the girl observed a man who was not the teen’s father leaving the home.

They questioned the man, who admitted he had gone to the home to take part in a sexual act.

The mother denied the charge, but investigators say she had an ad on a website advertising her services as an escort. The investigation into the molestations of the girl started when one of the parents found suspicious Facebook communications between the girl, and some men, and reported it to police, who started an investigation. To protect the identity of the daughter, the name of the mother isn’t been released.
