This article is especially dedicated to my reader “anonymous” who thinks all women involved in child sex crimes, are victims.

“TAMPA, Fla. — A woman who allegedly held her 13-year-old daughter’s hand while her boyfriend raped the girl has been charged along with the man with sexually assaulting all three of her children.
The three girls had told their mother that Valentin Sanchez, 47, molested them, said Detective John Yaratch with the Tampa police Sex Crimes Unit.
In the most recent case, police say the 13-year-old had gone to her mother, saying she was afraid.
“Her mother told her ‘I’ll comfort you by holding your hand’,” Yaratch said. “She was trying to protect the girl, she said.”
The couple is being held in the Hillsborough County Jail without bond. The 36-year-old woman’s name has not been released to shield her children’s identities.
Sanchez and his girlfriend were arrested last week after the 13-year-old told an aunt, who then reported the allegations to police. Sanchez and the woman are charged with five counts of sexual battery and two counts of lewd and lascivious acts on a child, and the woman faces an additional count of failure to report a crime to police.
They could get life sentences if convicted on all counts, Yaratch said.
The two other girls are 7 and 8. Yaratch said all three have different fathers. They are now living with a relative.
The woman, who met Sanchez at the convenience store where she works, told investigators that he helped her with mortgage payments and other expenses and that she was afraid of losing his assistance if she did not go along with his sexual demands on her daughters.”
I searched the internet for any information on what happened with this case, but no luck.
