Dalina Nicholas, 36, from Jacksonville Beach, Fla. pleaded guilty in court Wednesday to allowing her 6-year-old daughter to be repeatedly molested and sexually abused in exchange for drugs and money.
The charges against the Fla. mom amounted to four guilty counts of child neglect.
She hasn't been sentenced yet, but is facing a minimum of 15 years to a maximum of 30 years behind bars according to The Florida Times-Union, even with the plea deal she received in court on Jan. 30 when a charge of sexual battery against her was dropped.
As part of that plea deal, the bad mom will be testifying against the men that she allowed molest her daughter.
Police found out about the abuse in March 2012 after a homeless man signaled a passing police officer and told him the girl was being molested in a Sixth Street South home.
The man said he’d been to the home to use drugs in the past and seen several different men having sex with the girl.
Nicholas will be testifying against Quinn Brooks, 57, Ryan Harrover, 34, John Hagans, 48, and Norman Thompson, 52. The charges against the four men include sexual battery, and lewd or lascivious molestation.
Dalina Nicholas won’t be sentenced until the court cases against the four men have concluded.
The young victim and her younger brother are now staying with other family members.
