A mom from Laurel, Mont., Pamela Fink Coleman, 50, is scheduled to appear in Yellowstone County District Court on May 12 where she’ll be looking at two felony charges of child sexual abuse. Coleman is accused of having photos in her possession of one of two minor girls allegedly raped by her 19-year-old son, Jordan Todd Coleman.
The Great Falls Tribune reported on May 10 that mother Coleman was arrested on those child sex abuse charges on May 2. She’s currently free on a $40,000 bond. According to prosecutors in the case, 11 “sexually explicit photos” of a 13-year-old girl allegedly raped and photographed by her son were found on her cell phone. The son was charged last year in the rape of that 13-year-old girl. Jordan was also charged with raping a second minor, a 14-year-old girl. The son is currently free on bond on both of his rape charges.
Court documents shared by The Billings Gazette state that the investigation into the Montana mom began after police were contacted regarding a report that Coleman showed one of those nude pictures of one of the minor children to a co-worker. The co-worker recognized the girl in the picture as one of the girls Jordan Coleman was accused of raping, and contacted authorities
Charging documents in the case of Jordan Coleman state that the son invited a 13-year-old girl to his home in July 2013 where he raped her “after she refused his advances.” Documents also claim the son was in possession of marijuana inside his home and texted the girl “threatening to kill her.”
Armed with a search warrant, Laurel police went to Pamela Coleman’s home on April 7 and seized her cellphone, “which contained 11 sexually explicit photos of the underage girl,” according to prosecutors. The images on the elder Coleman’s phone depicting the sexually explicit images of the child were taken from another cellphone.
In addition to his two child rape charges, Jordan Coleman was charged with “criminal possession of dangerous drugs, or an alternate count of criminal possession of dangerous drugs, and a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.”
