A McCook, Nebraska man is the fourth man accused of paying a Nebraska mother to let him have sex with her 14-year old daughter. Prosecutors say 22-year-old Logan Roepke had sex with the teen twice last year and has been charged with sexual assault. Roepke posted bond on Tuesday and his attorney, Aaron Bishop, says his client plans to plead not guilty.
The three other men arrested in this case are Shad Chandler, Donald Grafe and Alexander Rahe.
The mother in this case is also accused of pimping out her 7 year-old daughter. The 35-year-old mother, according to the Nebraska State Patrol, has allowed at least seven men to have sex with her teenage daughter at least 20 times and investigators say at least three men had sex with the 7 year-old daughter.
The 35-year old woman was arrested on April 26, after she agreed to sell the sexual services of her oldest daughter for $150 to $200. The buyer was an undercover investigator with the Nebraska State Patrol, who had been tipped off by an informant. The informant said that he had met a woman on Craigslist who sent him sexually graphic photos of obviously underage girls.
After arresting the mother, investigators went to the family’s home and discovered the the mother’s 7 and 9 year old daughters home alone, curled up on a mattress. The three sisters have been placed in foster care.
The mother is charged with soliciting the sexual assault of her 14-year-old daughter and two counts of possession of child pornography. She is being held in the Buffalo County Jail on $250,000 bail. Prosecutors also said that child neglect and abuse charges are pending.
