Mom's Permission Slip For Sex With Daughter Lands Her In Jail
Woman Pleads Guilty To Complicity After Daughter Becomes Pregnant
LEBANON, Ohio -- A woman who allegedly wrote a note giving a man permission to have sex with her 15-year-old daughter was sentenced to 30 days in jail Wednesday, the Warren County prosecutor said.
Donna Rose, 39, of Lebanon, pleaded guilty to complicity to unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.
Curtis Lee Barnes, 19, moved in with Rose and her daughter and shared a bedroom with the girl for approximately one year, prosecutors said. Barnes paid $20 rent to Rose every two weeks.
After the girl became pregnant, Barnes became concerned about the legality of their sexual relationship and asked Rose to provide a "permission slip" for the relationship, prosecutors said.
The note read:
"This letter proves that Curtis Lee Barnes had and has permission to have intercourse with Donna Rose's daughter (name omitted), that he always had and will have until she is eighteen or until they break up."
Barnes was convicted of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and will be required to complete an inpatient drug treatment program at a locked facility.
Barnes and Rose were designated sexually oriented offenders and will be required to register with local authorities for 10 years.
