Utah couple defend themselves with absurd claim

The couple claimed that they discovered approximately a year ago that their daughter was conversing with strangers online and wanted to meet them for sexual purposes.

The parents, according to affidavit, also learned that the teenager had texted and shared images of herself "in sexual situations" with strangers on Snapchat, according to the affidavit.

The pair allegedly "decided that teaching the victim about sex, and engaging in sexual acts with the victim would be safer for her than having sex with strangers."

According to ABC 4, the mother of five also claimed to authorities that the girl even witnessed them having sex.

The girl reportedly asked her mother about a broken condom, and when the mother reached out to her husband, he rejected having "full intercourse with the victim," the affidavit stated.

However, the father allegedly admitted to the authorities that he had sex with the daughter.

When medical teams reached at their home, the victim told the authorities that her mother was aware about the abuse.

They both have been shifted to the Utah County Jail and a bail has been denied to them as they pose a "substantial risk" to their kids, according to ABC 4.
