A mother in Colorado is accused of pimping out her own young daughter for money, gifts and a trip to Hawaii.
ABC 6 says 43-year-old Julie Anne Greiner allegedly allowed her 12-year-old daughter to have sex with a 23-year-old Australian man – for her own benefit.
The inappropriate relationship began back in 2014 when the report says the child met 23-year-old Thomas Keski online. Jefferson County District Attorney spokesperson Pam Russell said that Internet relationship eventually turned sexual.
At some point, the man in Australia began to ship thousands of dollars to Greiner, along with electronics and jewelry, ABC 6 reports — and the girl’s mother did not turn it away. In fact, the report says she used a lot of the money to pay rent and bills, about $10,000 worth.
Fox 31 obtained the arrest affidavit, and 14 pages of the report detail exactly what was given to the mother. The report says some of that money was used to buy an engagement ring for the little girl — a gift from the suspect. There were sex toys discovered as well — items believed to have been shipped to the child for photos and video chats.
At some point, Keski wanted more than just online sexual fun. Reports say he arranged a trip to the United States — accompanied by his own mother — to visit Greiner and the victim at their home. The four of them then left for a vacation to Hawaii, believed to have been paid for by Keski.
ABC 6 reports that, during that trip, Keski slept in the same bed as the 12-year-old while both moms shared a room nearby.
The Jefferson County District Attorney announced the charges against Greiner this week. They have formally charged her with pimping of a child, sexual assault of a child with a pattern of abuse and human trafficking of a minor for sexual servitude. Greiner is being held without bond.
No word on how authorities caught wind of this, but they say Keski is under arrest in Australia and he has been charged there.
