A woman has been charged with sex trafficking and child sex abuse offences after police suspected her of trying to prostitute her own baby for crystal meth.
Facebook messages between the mother and another man, both form Oklahoma, were used to discuss the supply of the drugs in exchange for “giving up” the baby.
The woman allegedly sent at least three pictures of her six-month-old child’s genitals when the man offered to get her drugs.
Due to the severity of the alleged crime, secret service agents have taken over proceedings.
The pair have been on-off partners for a number of years but both have now been charged with numerous charges including conspiracy to manufacture child pornography, possession of child pornography and sex trafficking children.
According to court documents, the man messaged the child's mother and asked if “she remembered what he had wanted before".
She then responded with the graphic pictures, the documents said.
He then reportedly replied: “So you wanna give that up?”
During an interview with investigators, the mother said she had sexually assaulted an 18-month-old child with the man on a previous occasion.
