Mom gets 2 years in prison for forcing daughter to have sex
SALEM, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts woman who forced her intellectually disabled adult daughter to have sex with the woman’s boyfriend in exchange for money and bill payments has pleaded guilty.
The Eagle-Tribune reports that 58-year-old Nancy Barr was sentenced Tuesday to two years in prison after pleading guilty to rape, indecent assault and other charges.
Barr, formerly of Haverhill and now of Salisbury, was also sentenced to three years’ probation and banned from having contact with her daughter by a judge who called her actions “reprehensible.”
The victim, now in her late 20s, functions at the level of an 8- or 9-year-old child.
Prosecutors say Barr encouraged her daughter to have sex with the now 69-year-old boyfriend, who was paying for Barr’s cable and internet service.
He pleaded guilty to rape in May.
