A Georgia mother has pleaded guilty to selling her two daughters for sex. The man who police said raped them has been convicted.

The mother, a 25-year-old woman from Union City, pleaded guilty to multiple charges including two counts of first degree cruelty to children, two counts of enticing a child for indecent purposes and two counts of trafficking a person for sexual servitude, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. The paper did not name the woman to protect the identity of the girls, aged 5 and 6.

Richard Office, 78, was convicted of multiple charges including rape, trafficking a person for sexual servitude, child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes. He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, plus an additional 146 years.

The mother will be sentenced next month.

The AJC reported that while the mother was in a Florida jail on unrelated charges, the girls told their temporary guardians that their mother took them to men's homes where they were sexually assaulted for money. They identified one of the men as Office, and had called him Pop.

The girls told the Fulton County District Attorney that their mother took them to Office's home, and he took them in the bedroom where he touched and kissed them inappropriately. The mother waited in the living room. After he was finished, the girls said Office gave them $100, which their mother took from them. The district attorney said the 5-year-old was injured in the assault, the AJC reported.

Another man, Alfredo Trejo, was convicted in February for raping the girls. He was sentenced to 25 years in prison, with life on probation.
