A mother has been jailed for six years for asking her partner to rape her daughter because she couldn’t have another child of her own.
The mother and step-father used the terrified 12-year-old as a surrogate mother, forcing her to have sex with him until she conceived because her mother was sterlised.
Warwick Crown Court heard the girl became pregnant and the baby has now been taken into care.
The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty to two charges of rape and was jailed for 18 years.
Her mother admitted conspiracy to rape and child cruelty and was jailed for six years.
The couple, in their 30s, from south Warwickshire, cannot be named to protect the girl’s identity.
Judge Andrew Lockhart QC said: ‘It is the responsibility of those with the gift of children to look after them and prepare them for life with love and kindness.
