DUCHESNE, Utah (CBS Seattle) — A Utah mother is accused of taking sexually explicit photographs of her 13-year-old daughter with the intention of sharing them with a 30-year-old man in Oregon.
The woman, age 35, reportedly faces three charges of exploitation of a minor, the Deseret News reports. The charge is a second-degree felony.
The teen reportedly told the Duchesne County Sheriff’s Office that her mother took three nude photos of her after she was unable to take them herself.
The photos were then sent to the man in Oregon.
The girl’s mother confirmed the details, adding that she knew of her daughter’s intended audience.
Authorities in Utah then connected with the appropriate local Oregon police department, who is now looking to charging the man for allegedly requesting and receiving the photos.
In the interest of protecting the minor, the names of the accused parties were not disclosed.
