Mum took nude picture of 13-year-old daughter to send to 30-year-old ‘good family friend’ (PICTURED)

A Utah mother has pleaded guilty to child abuse after taking nude photos of her 13-year-old daughter so that the girl could text them to a 30-year-old “family friend.”

In April, the teen told Duchesne County detectives that Daniel Dean Divine, who lives in Oregon, was her boyfriend and had asked her to take nude pictures for him on an iPhone he had given her, the Deseret News reported.

The girl said she could not figure out how to use the phone’s camera, so her mother, 35, agreed to take three photos of her to be sent to the man, according to the Deseret News.

The names of the mother and the teenager haven’t been released in order to protect the girl’s identity.

The woman told investigators that Divine was a “very good friend of the family,”according to KSL. She also claimed that he and her daughter were planning to wait until the girl was 18 to begin a sexual relationship.

The mother was originally charged with three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, a second-degree felony. As part of a plea bargain, she pleaded guilty on Thursday to one count of third-degree felony child abuse and agreed to testify against Divine.

She faces up to five years in prison.

Divine has been charged with sexual exploitation of a minor and enticing a minor over the Internet.

  1. It is almost obvious that the so called mother is sleeping with the Divine guy and they both agreed to make it a three way i.e 'mother daughter affair'

  2. Really, there should be a universal international law on child abuse especially of the sexual kind and it should be death by different soul-breaking torture! Something the Gestapo would envy! And it should be more painful if the mother’s are involved!

  3. Too bad. Bad Mum.

  4. It is terrifying that woman could be involved in sexual abuse of her begotten daughter
