Australia: Mother jailed for prostituting teenage daughter

Link to article here. Excerpt:

'A mother-of-two has been jailed for prostituting her teenage daughter in a case a judge says involved "an extreme breach of trust".

The girl says she was subjected to physical and mental abuse and forced to take illicit drugs when known by the name 'Layla' and working at Sydney's Liaisons escort agency between November 2008 and December 2009.

She was aged 16 and 17 at the time. The girl's mother has admitted changing a birth certificate so the child could work for the agency as an 18-year-old.

At Wollongong District Court on Tuesday, the 43-year-old woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was sentenced to serve at least 18 months' jail after pleading guilty to charges of obtaining a benefit from child prostitution and causing a child to participate in prostitution.'
