Mother accused of offering daughter to be raped in exchange for cash
INA, Nagano — A mother and a male acquaintance, already facing charges over forcing her eldest daughter into prostitution, have been issued new arrest warrants accusing them of attempting to rape the woman’s second daughter.
The new arrest warrants accuse the 45-year-old mother and 72-year-old Shoichi Koshio of attempting to rape the primary school-aged girl twice at a hotel in mid-May this year. According to police, the mother brought the girl to the hotel room, where she accepted a large sum of cash from Koshio and remained in the room while he tried to rape her daughter.
The pair was first arrested in connection with prostituting the woman’s eldest daughter, who is in her early teens.
