A Georgia mother-of-three has been sentenced to 20 years behind bars for allowing men to rape her two daughters for money.
Morgan Summerlin, 25, admitted last month she would take her children to the home of Richard ‘Pop’ Office, 78, where she would wait in the living room while he raped her five-year-old daughter and had her six-year-old massage his feet.
After the girls’ ordeal, he would give them each $100, which was then given to Summerlin, USA Today reported.
The Fulton District Attorney said the girls were told to call Office ‘Pop’ and the man gave drugs to Summerlin.
After pleading guilty in May, Summerlin was sentenced to 20 years without parole, and a further 10 years on probation following her release.
Her attorney told the Fulton Superior Court Summerlin herself was sexually abused as a child, and appeared to suggest her actions were a consequence of her own trauma.
The Georgia woman’s children are now in the custody of a family member, who was in court on Monday.
Summerlin was charged with raping and trafficking a person for sexual servitude, cruelty to children and enticing a child for indecent purposes.
Office was earlier found guilty of rape, child molestation, trafficking a person for sexual servitude, enticing a child for indecent purposed and sexual battery, and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, plus 146 years.

Another man the girls were taken to visit, Alfredo Trejo, was convicted in February of rape, child molestation, sexual battery, enticing a child for indecent purposes, trafficking a person for sexual servitude and aggravated child molestation.
‘It is difficult to imagine facts that are more horrific than those found in this case,’ Chief Senior Assistant District Attorney Irina Khasin told news station WSVN.
‘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.’
The girls’ grandmother, Teresa Davidson, has also pleaded guilty to cruelty to children after she failed to act when they told her they were being abused.
She was sentenced to five years, but one year was struck off as time served and the rest will be served through probation.
