A Melbourne mom who was sexually involved with her adult nephew allowed him to rape and “break the virginity” of her daughter.

The victim told police that she cried and tried to stop her cousin but her mother held her legs down. The court heard the case and discovered that the girl had been enduring the assaults since she was 12 and which started in 2011. It continued until 2014 when the victim opened up about the matter in front of her older siblings. The names of the people involved have been kept hidden because of some legal reasons. Both the 42-year-old man and 55-year-old mom have been found guilty of their involvement in the sexual assault done to the teen.

According to News.com.au, the man faced the County Court of Victoria on Wednesday on charges of continuous sexual abuse of a child under the age of 16. “This is gross offending. The breaking of the virginity,” prosecutor Michael Hennessy told the court on Wednesday. According to reports, the mother started having sexual relations with her nephew when he allowed her to stay in one of his houses following her separation from her estranged husband in 2011.

The nephew touched the daughter in one occasion and raped her shortly after that. “The girl is crying and it’s hurting while the virginity is broken, and (the mother) holds the leg so she can see what’s happening,” Hennessy said. The involvement of the mother was reported only during the first time the rape took place. After that, the nephew used to abuse her daughter in her absence.

“(It was) a gross violation of the relationship between a mother and her daughter,” Stephen Lindner, the mother’s lawyer, addressed the court.

Tenplay.com.au reported that the nephew was granted bail following his arrest in December 2014 while the mother has remained on remained since March.
