Mom who pimped young children gets life

2012-03-16 10:02

Johannesburg - A mother who pimped her two pre-school daughters to men for sex and sometimes watched while they were abused, has been sentenced to life in prison by the Pretoria Regional Court, Beeld newspaper reported on Friday.

Magistrate Mariette Louw handed down an additional 31 year jail sentence, and said the sentences would run concurrently.

The children's father received a lesser sentence of five years in jail.

Louw said there was no indication that the mother, 34, had any empathy for her children.

She was earlier found guilty of being an accomplice to rape, being an accomplice to sexual abuse, and of abusing her daughters.

The two sisters were aged 3 and 5 when they were forced to dance indecently in front of men, who also fondled and raped them.

The abuse took place from January 2005 to December 2007, during which time the mother was paid R100 or more per session.

Both children were removed from their parents' custody in December 2007.

Louw found that all the incidents of abuse were carefully planned.

"The children complained of being in severe pain, but the parents took them back to these men time after time. They were robbed of their innocence and youth," she said.

      Pythagoras - 2012-03-16 10:05

      I hope they pimp her in jail... Sick F$%ken woman!

      RSole - 2012-03-16 10:47

      They should strap some drugs on her and send her to China.

      JasonEye - 2012-03-16 10:47

      Good sentence, life in jail! well done courts!

      joeballito - 2012-03-16 10:50

      What about those bastards that did the raping?Surely they must sit as well!Name and shame the missfits!

      Tanie - 2012-03-16 10:55

      You can withhold their names but we know who the peadophiles of this world are.

      John - 2012-03-16 14:01

      She should be sent to a man's jail so she can experience what she put her children through. DISGUSTING EXCUSE FOR A HUMAN BEING!!!

      Antipoaching - 2012-03-16 14:26

      I really, reaaly like the strapping drugs and sending her to China idea........

      yolie.Landa - 2012-03-16 14:56

      THis mother who did this to these little ones should be fed to lions alive. She doesnt deserve China's lethal injection, and I dont think this country needs her ashes even if they are in DHL box

      Shane - 2012-03-16 10:14

      Agree. Way too lenient.

      JasonEye - 2012-03-16 10:48

      The only thing harsher is the death penalty, which im for, but we dont have. so I think a life sentence, as the harshest sentence in SA, is a good outcome and the judge and court should be commended. She could only use what she had.

      Shane - 2012-03-16 10:53

      Jason, sometimes kangaroo court is a better option. (It's funny how few thumbs down I get, considering I'm Dozer.)

      Elize - 2012-03-16 11:20

      Life is much better than the death penalty, death penalty is too quick, they will be dealt with by their fellow inmates.

      Kuberboef - 2012-03-16 12:23

      @ Shane, if you take the law into your own hands, where do you stop? The law is there for a reason.

      Shane - 2012-03-16 12:29

      Kuber, nobody is taking the law into his own hands. I just believe that child molesters/sex offenders don't deserve any better.

      Enhle - 2012-03-16 13:54

      True not harsh at all...two lives destroyed, they could have HIV alredy..poor innocent kids

      Tania - 2012-03-16 20:27

      That is put very mildly. Rot in jail your terrble BITCH. How the F** can a mother do something like that to her own children????????

  • koo.doyle - 2012-03-16 10:08

    Life in prison is much too good for this piece of trash.

      zaatheist - 2012-03-16 11:26

      And what about the clients - the clients must be jailed as well

      edwardsch - 2012-03-16 11:38

      The problem is that the Correctional Services Parole board will let her out in next to no time on good behaviour or some other such rubbish. Life sentence should mean that you get released when you are in the wooden box and not sooner....

      koo.doyle - 2012-03-16 12:06

      Agreed @ edward!!

      Chille - 2012-03-16 13:14

      They must fix her. If she does ever get out as you say she might, she will just produce her own little sex ring again and start all over...

  • Marie - 2012-03-16 10:10

    This is not a mother, just a total selfish bitch, she needs to go to a male jail to be rapped every 5 minutes

      Truthis - 2012-03-16 10:43

      Yeah, because sometimes rape is okay?

      Shane - 2012-03-16 10:54

      In this case it is ok, Thruhis.

      koo.doyle - 2012-03-16 12:07

      It is never ok Shane. Perpetuating the thought that its acceptable to sink to the level of the perpetrators, can only be harmful.

      Shane - 2012-03-16 12:11

      Koo, maybe if I did something else for a living, I would've agreed with you. Unfortuanitely I've reached a point in my life (career) where an eye for an eye sometimes looks the better option.

      Shane - 2012-03-16 12:31

      Kuber, so you are in favour of human rights for sex offenders?

  • James - 2012-03-16 10:10

    I hope the men who abused them are in jail too!

      Mike - 2012-03-16 13:27

      I am a dad too of two young daughters and I get chills down my spine reading this. How could someone do such a thing to her flesh and blood?

      Lacrimose - 2012-03-16 22:07

      The gargantuan hole in this story. We can reasonably infer that this mother's mental health is not good for whatever reason. But what about the participators, the people who paid, the clientelle? They are also culpable

  • Sharon - 2012-03-16 10:11

    Unbelievable! I am a mother, and my heart goes out to these children. What a total monster that woman is - evil personified!

      Desiree - 2012-03-16 10:20

      I'm a mom too....and I agree, it is just so beyond me!! my heart breakfs for these little girls....

      Kuberboef - 2012-03-16 12:21

      I'm a dad and can't even imagine something like that, how can a parent do that?

  • Glenda - 2012-03-16 10:13

    What about those men.They should also be sentenced!!

  • Phumi - 2012-03-16 10:16

    How I long for the day we incoporate Sharia Law into our constitution to strenghten and make our laws bite for such scumbags!

      Waheeda - 2012-03-16 10:45


      Jacqui - 2012-03-16 11:06

      Phumi, you mean like, I get stoned for having a male friend?. Iran would welcome you I am sure.

      Jacqui - 2012-03-16 13:07

      so women who get raped can be forced to marry their rapist - or commit suicide - I don't think so.

  • Natascha - 2012-03-16 10:20

    One of the sickest things I have read. I hope both 'parents' get what they deserve in jail and more. Sick trash. Agree with James, hope the men who abused them are in jail too.

  • pips.hamilton - 2012-03-16 10:20

    Why did the father only get 5 years in jail?

      elspeth.hassall - 2012-03-16 11:39

      Also my question...New24 always leaves something hanging in their reporting.

  • Shaun - 2012-03-16 10:21

    All involved deserve the death sentence. Pray that the poor children will heal in time

      Carolann - 2012-03-16 11:19

      death is too lenient for these people, they must suffer and get what they deserve.

  • Shirley - 2012-03-16 10:21

    Those kids lives are ruined and she gets to live hers? The father should at least have got life. I pray that there are structures in place to help those children to become as normal as is possible! She should burn at the stake!

      JasonEye - 2012-03-16 10:51

      Unfortunately burning at the stake is a little "dark ages" but i hear you!

      Shirley - 2012-03-16 16:05

      Might be dark ages but its a painful way to go and she will have time to remember her crimes!

  • Missyleeh - 2012-03-16 10:21

    Now this is sick, how can a mother be so heartless. The poor kids. I really hope the find some strong loving people because they r gonna need a good support system 4 the next few years

  • Sophia - 2012-03-16 10:21

    PURE EVIL!!!!

  • Esther Badenhorst - 2012-03-16 10:22

    OMF! Name and shame the parents! I'm so upset after reading this! My heart goes out to the girls, hope they getting the correct counselling and care... Wtf is wrong with the world???? Uuuurgh!

  • Michael - 2012-03-16 10:24

    Fortunately there are millions of carring parents for their children

  • Robyn - 2012-03-16 10:24

    And the father got 5 years??? WTF

  • Siann - 2012-03-16 10:25

    Bring back the death penalty!!!!!

      Linda - 2012-03-16 10:48

      I agree! Why should my tax money be used to keep this worthless piece of trash alive - and provide her free medical treatment, education, accommodation and food? I would rather my money was used to provide those benefits to a pensioner who was worked hard all their life and now struggles to survive/

      Cynthia - 2012-03-16 15:36

      Siann I agree with you 100%, but don't hold your breath. Before being elected President, Jacob Zuma promised that he would being back the death penalty. Now he says no. Amazing how quickly they forget their promises before being elected.

  • Moi - 2012-03-16 10:25

    Life doesn't seem a harsh enough sentence for what this disgusting piece of filth has done.

      kgomotso.radise - 2012-03-16 10:27

      Amen to that

      Cynthia - 2012-03-16 15:39

      At least she won't be able to get her claws on her prescious little girls for a good few years and if she doesn't die from the beating that the other female prisoners give her, they will at least be grown up and can tell her get lost.

  • Sophia - 2012-03-16 10:26

    PURE EVIL!!!!

    open the mother up and put a dead cat inside her and then stitch her up...That sounds about right...Sick bitch

      Jacqui - 2012-03-16 11:08

      A dead cat, why involve an animal?.

  • Courtney Nuyten - 2012-03-16 10:33

    how low can any human stoop. and to think these are her own children. what a disgusting waste of a person, she should be the victim and see how she feels. feel so sorry for the tuny little beings, only 3 and 5. its disgusting!!!!

  • Chez - 2012-03-16 10:34

    We can only hope that those in jail learn very quickly of her offence. This is one of the worst cases i have heard in a long time.

  • lsmkhwanaz - 2012-03-16 10:34

    Why did the father get a lesser sentence?

  • leslie.rabie - 2012-03-16 10:35

    I hope they ripped you apart in Jail. Over and Over and Over again. You are a disgrace of a human mother

  • Shaun.groenewald - 2012-03-16 10:36

    What in ACTUAL F##K is wrong with people!?

  • Lulama - 2012-03-16 10:37

    What a sick woman! I am not even sure if she qualifies to be called a mother. Those poor kids will be scarred for life.

  • Anne - 2012-03-16 10:40

    This woman deserves to be hanged. Gregory you are right may she rot in jail. Throw the keys away and don't feed her!

  • Gaynor - 2012-03-16 10:41

  • Jennie - 2012-03-16 10:42

    OMG Can this be for real. I hope that they rot in jail, and why did the father only get 5 years, and what about the rapists

  • Waheeda - 2012-03-16 10:44

    Life in prison isn't even good enough for these worthless pond scum. Those poor little girls, I hope they're well cared for now and get all the help they need for the future.

  • Dieter - 2012-03-16 11:00

    why isn't the mother's name given? And also why aren't the "clients" traced? they also took part and it is rape after all! life is getting sicker by the day... Sad that if this happened say 20 years ago, i'd be very shocked .. but you hear this stuff happen every day! - and you kinda get use to it ...

      Mark - 2012-03-17 08:00

      I am reading these comments from a foreign country-in my country (Bermuda) in cases like this, the parents/relatives are not named because to do so would clearly lead to the identity of the children. If this was a random act involving strangers then 'yes', you could name the culprits. In this case if the parents are named, all of society will quickly know the identity of these poor chldren-they would then forever be known as the kids whose parents allowed them to be raped. Their privacy would forever be destroyed-this could affect future schooling (teasing, ostracizing, etc.), marriage, careers-all sorts of problems could arise if they are identified. They would be punished all over again for the rest of their lives for something that wasn't their fault. As I said, this is the reason why in my country when crimes are committed against kids by family members by law here NO details are given that could identify the children which is best for them in preserving their privacy. So don't look at it as protecting the parents but protecting the poor, innocent girls. As for this so-called 'mother' don't worry-this evil, inhuman witch will get what she deserves when she is tormented in prison as I'm sure she will be. Then one day she'll die (hopefully sooner rather than later) and she will burn in hell forever. SICK!!!

    I'm gob smacked by this story... it is so difficult to try an comprehend how a mother does this to her own children.... There are just no words to express the horror this women created for two tiny little beings. Hope she gets what she deserves....

  • rob.munro3 - 2012-03-16 11:05

    This is what i dont understand about people that govern ie governments,all over the world for that matter,where are the harsher sentences like death penalty,thats the only deterent as far as im concerned.Going to jail and wasting our tax money is not the solution,kill the bitch and all involved,jail should be for petty offences,harsh criminals are not welcome on my planet kill them all.then you will see how we are supposed to live our lives!

  • Khathu - 2012-03-16 11:06

    This is really shocking, and to think there are men who pay to fondle and rape babies? what???, im appalled!!! If they didnt want the babies anymore, why didnt they rather give them up for adoption?? How can she be so heartless to your own flesh and blood?? what a sick and twisted couple This is so heart breaking and i dont think jail is good enough for them.
