Rape Victim's Mom Sent Nude Pics to Suspect

A mother is accused of sending nude photos of her 13-year-old daughter to a man who is charged with raping the girl.

The pair were arrested after the mother called police Saturday and held Erik Hull, 35, at knifepoint until officers arrived.

Hull, of the Houston suburb of Pasadena, was charged with aggravated sexual assault on a child. He was being held on $500,000 bail.

The 28-year-old mother, whose name was not released to shield her daughter's identity, was charged with promoting child pornography. Her bail was also set at $500,000.

The mother told police she sent Hull the nude photos so he could sell them. Hull was visiting Saturday when the girl called her grandmother saying Hull had raped her, a police report said.

Hull said he did not remember what happened, that he woke up with the girl on top of him, the report said.

Child Protective Services (search) is investigating, and the girl is in the care of relatives, spokeswoman Mary Walker said.
