A Wisconsin woman is accused of allowing men to sexually assault her two children in exchange for methamphetamine, cocaine and money, reports said Thursday.
The children were made to perform sex acts and pose naked for photos, an informant told police.
The suspect, Michelle Mayer, 39, was reportedly present during the assaults and was paid in money, meth and cocaine. She reportedly beat the children with a baseball bat if they tried to fight back.
Mayer was charged with two counts of repeated sexual assault of a child, and being a party to a crime, WTMJ-TV reported.
The woman from Eau Claire, Wis., trafficked the children for at least 6 and a half years using her mother’s house, the report said, citing a criminal complaint.
The criminal complaint also said the owner of the home told officers that they “had no idea” the assaults were occurring until 2017, WEAU-TV reported. The children were between ages 6 and 9, the complaint said.
