FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — A mother in Georgia was sentenced on Monday after pleading guilty to selling her two young children for sex.
Morgan Summerlin, 25, was sentenced to 30 years, 20 of which will be served in prison and the remaining 10 on probation.
According to the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, the 5 and 6-year-old girls told adults that their mother would bring them to men’s homes to be molested and raped for money.
As their mother waiting in the living room, one of the men, 78-year-old Richard Office, who the girls referred to as "Pop," took the girls into the bedroom where he molested both of the girls. Additionally, he raped the 5-year-old girl, causing her to bleed while making the older sister rub his feet, according to the DA's office. Afterward, Office reportedly gave the girls $100, and the girls’ mother immediately took the money from them.
The same thing happened on a separate occasion, where Summerlin took her children to Alfredo Trejo's home and allowed him to molest and rape the girls. Trejo also paid the girls after he sexually abused them, which Summerlin took from them immediately after.
“It is difficult to imagine facts that are more horrific than those found in this case," District Attorney Paul L. Howard, Jr. said. "I am hoping these two little girls can somehow survive this abuse and grow into healthy adults who can lead a productive and fulfilling life.”
Summerland entered a guilty plea in May on the charges of first-degree cruelty to children, trafficking a person for sexual servitude, and enticing a child for indecent purposes.
Office was convicted of rape, child molestation, sexual battery, enticing a child for indecent purposes, and trafficking a person for sexual servitude. He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, plus 146 years to run concurrently.
