SUNSHINE COAST, Australia -- A 37-year old woman has been sentenced to 4 years in jail for raping her daughter under the pretense of teaching the 11-year-old about sex.
The mother of four used her cell phone to videotape herself repeatedly raping her young daughter.
And this was just one of many "lessons" the mother gave as part of a "bizarre sexual education," the presiding judge said.
Judge John Robertson said the mother, through her "selfish criminal conduct", had deprived her daughter of the right to "a wholesome and loving relationship with her mother".
Prosecutors say the woman recently began a cyber-sex relationship with a man in Melbourne and became obsessed with sex.
They would send sexual videos to each other.
The woman then began forcing her daughter to watch the sex videos she was making with the man, as part of a twisted effort to teach the young girl about sex.
"Your conduct toward your daughter involved a very serious breach of trust," Judge Robertson said.
The mother's name was not released to protect her daughter's identity.
