The Washington State Patrol said on Saturday that a 38-year-old truck driver was arrested in Oklahoma on Friday night as part of an investigation into a Seattle-area woman’s attempt to sell her 14-year-old daughter’s virginity to make rent money.
According to Seattle’s Fox Channel 13, 46-year-old Mary Miles of Carnation, Washington was arrested on Jan. 27 and charged on Jan. 30 for setting up a plan for her daughter to have sex with a 36-year-old Miami, Oklahoma truck-driver who KOMO news identified as Bryan T. Murphy.
A court document filed by the Washington State Patrol said that Miles “made arrangements to allow her boyfriend, a trucker she had met online, to have sex with her 14-year-old daughter…in exchange for the boyfriend assisting the defendant with rent money.”
On Jan. 26, Miles took her daughter to Murphy’s truck, which was parked at Ken’s Truck Town in North Bend. Miles and Murphy began to have sex in front of the girl. During intercourse, Murphy reportedly reached over and grabbed the girl by the leg.
The frightened teen fled the truck cab and hiked several miles to a middle school, where her sister came to pick her up. The two girls called police.
“In the subsequent investigation,” said the Highway Patrol report, “the defendant admitted to agreeing to allow her boyfriend to have sex with…(her 14-year-old daughter) or her other minor daughter, and text messages between the defendant and the boyfriend graphically described what the boyfriend intended to do with the girls.”
KOMO reported that Murphy had agreed to marry Miles once he had taken her younger daughter’s virginity. Text messages between the two contained lurid details.
“Ok you can have (the 14-year old),” wrote Miles.
Murphy responded that he had purchased a ring for Miles and that he would marry her “the day after I pop (the 14-year-old girl’s) cherry.”
Miles reportedly admitted under questioning that the agreed-upon price for sex with the younger girl was $400.
Both girls have been removed from their mother’s custody.
