DAYTON, Ohio – A judge has sentenced a southwest Ohio woman to 18 months in prison for trying to work her 17-year-old daughter as a prostitute.
A Montgomery County judge told Rachel White on Monday that her actions were "disgusting," and she verbally agreed.
Sheriff's deputies say they found the 39-year-old woman and a man prostituting the girl at a Dayton-area hotel in April.
Judge A.J. Wagner gave White the maximum penalty on her guilty plea to a felony charge of attempting to compel prostitution by a minor. He listed her as a sex offender and gave her a simultaneous sentence of 3 months for child endangering.
Her daughter attended the sentencing but didn't speak.
The man, Michael Melvin, was sentenced in July to a year in prison.
