Federal prosecutors accuse Kansas City woman of helping husband abduct her 16-year-old daughter so he could have sex with her

June 10, 2010


— Federal prosecutors say a Kansas woman helped her husband flee the state with her daughter so he could have sex with the 16-year-old girl.

The 44-year-old Overland Park woman is charged with aiding and abetting the interstate transportation of a minor with the intent to engage in sexual activities, obstructing justice and harboring a fugitive.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says her 39-year-old husband was charged Monday with possession of child pornography and attempting to coerce a minor to have sex with him.

The woman is accused of leaving her daughter with the man on June 3, in violation of a court order placing the girl in protective custody.

The man and his stepdaughter were taken into custody Thursday in California after investigators traced credit card purchases to a hotel in Huntington Beach.

Kinda makes you wonder if they're in some sort of religious cult or something. Either that, or this man has an amazing "control" over this woman.

Either way, this is so sad.

That's just plain sick. I'm thinking the man had control over the woman.

Not that I condone the behavior at all, but I'm curious...why, if he's going to rape her, does he need to do it in another state?

News reports out of KC stated that he had KU vanity tags on his white truck assuming this is the amber alert case issued yesterday.

No, this dates back to June 3rd. Not the same.

My guess is that he knew he was in trouble already on child porn charges and was basically on the run. What a messed up family situation.

I hope the girl can be removed and placed with decent folks so she can finish her teens with some safety and normalcy.

Geez, it makes you just want to go CUSS.

I'm not surprised by this new allegation. I heard the KC news, yesterday, and was already wondering about the mother and her choice in men. It seems that the daughter's biological father was denied any visitation with her and hadn't seen her in five years. Now, her step-father is charged with trying to coerce into having sex?!? Based on this information, it seems like mom isn't very "motherly."

What the 4-letter-word is WRONG with these people? There should be a special punishment for women who don't protect their children.

I remember my psych professor trying to bang into our heads that human females do not have a maternal instinct. In order for it to be an instinct ALL females would have to exhibit it. If we did have it no human females would kill their young. However I am a firm believer in a maternal bond. If someone tried to harm one of my children I would just have to kill them. This mother is a giant POS.

One might think procreation is an instinct. And survival. Not always exhibited by every member of the species.

pagan_idolator 8 years ago

I agree we have some instincts and not sure if I agree with the psych prof. but I can still remember some of his rants about it. I think some of us are just more messed up than others.

Sex trafficking in the U.S. is not an abberation. What this mother did is not a one of the kind thing. Parents are selling their kids into the sex trade in the U.S. This girl is just one of many. It is easy for people to think these two are just perverts but the reality is that this is common. In November 2009, 5 year old Shaniya Davis was found dead after her mother sold her to a man in exchange for drugs. In another recent case, a father was convicted after he trafficked his boys in exchange for cigaretts. Mothers have been known to sell their daughters to landlords in exchange for rent. This is not just happening in the third world. It is happening here in the U.S. And it isn't just a big city thing. It is happening here in small town America. In places like Lawrence. And at the risk of repeating myself, the average age of a prostitute in the US is 13. There are approximately 600,000 underage minors (both male and females) being sold for sex in the U.S. Most are being trafficked by a ring but many are being trafficked by their own parents. It is a good thing that she was found and yes she is going to need help but let us not forget about the other ones out there who won't be found and if found, will need such extensive help that they might never be whole.

You misquoted. The average age of a prostitute is not 13, rather the average age of entry into prostitution is 12-14, or you could generalize and say 13.

The mother probably has a history similar to her daughter's recent history.

why were they in San Diego? answer: the mexican border is just an hour or so's drive.

lots of criminals from the u.s. hide in mexico because the law there is corrupt, disorganized and weak.

and please avoid the stereotypes. don't automatically assume this "stepfather" had mind control over mommy dearest.

this thing could have been her idea and maybe she was gonna join them in mexico for all we know. she may have given her daughter to him to exert control over him.

sometimes it seems the death penalty punnishment should be expanded, cover more crimes. this girl has had a lot of her life taken from her.
