    MO - Todd Barkau & Debra Palmer for child sex trafficking, Blue Springs, 2006

    I am sickened...these two deserve nothing but life in hell.

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. Federal prosecutors on Monday unsealed an indictment against a man and woman accused of training the woman's child to be a dominatrix, selling her services and photographing some of the acts.
    U.S. Attorney John Wood said the case is the first in which a parent of the victim has been charged with the commercial sex trafficking of his or her own minor child.
    Todd B. Barkau, 35, of New York, and the 44-year-old mother were charged in the seven-count indictment. Both used to live in Blue Springs, Mo. in the same household.
    From Jan. 1, 2002, until Feb. 20, 2005, Barkau created a venture to entice the minor to engage in commercial sex acts, according to the indictment.
    "The court filings allege that Barkau obtained control of a 12-year-old girl and he groomed, trained and forced her to become a sexual dominatrix," Wood said at a news conference in Kansas City on Monday.

    From White Rain's link:

    Federal prosecutors, who had investigated the case for nearly two years, have filed a detention motion to detain both in federal custody without bond.

    The indictment accused Barkau of training the girl, starting in 2000, and forcing her to engage in sex acts with him and with other men while he watched. According to the indictment, Barkau also had the girl watch pornography on the Internet to teach technique and skills.

    Barkau is also accused of later creating a business out of a Blue Springs home when the girl was 14 and marketing her as a 19-to-20-year-old BDSM dominatrix on the Internet for about two years. The domain name has since been sold, Wood said.

    Prosecutors will also seek $80,000 the couple is accused of making through the illegal acts.

    I guess we now know $80K was the value of her childhood.

    This makes me literally want to throw up. I wish they would put these two under the jail.

    Am I reading that correctly that the girl would be about twenty years old now? Hopefully she's cooperating and these swine will pay dearly for what they did to her.

    another "mother" allowing her boyfriend to rape her child.
    Heck, not only rape but "Train" then sell her to other pervs.

    This mother needs to be shot along with the man, but she will probably say she is the victim of abuse and get away with it...UGH.

    Let's tell what the mom did too! This is from the link in the first post:

    "Wood said the mother, who lived in Barkau's residence, assisted and encouraged the child to participate. She is charged with participating in a venture to entice a minor to engage in commercial sex acts and with inducing a child who was in her custody to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the production of visual depictions."

    Disgusting! Absolutely Disgusting. I guess I understand why they are not saying the mom's name (to protect the identity of the girl) but I wish the girl would change her name so the mom could be publicly identified.

    Why are the glorifying his pimp status. That is all he is, a horrible pimp. Nevermind this mother, I can't even begin to speak about her. Too horrible.

    I don't need to read the linked articles to voice my opinion on this - sick, sick, sick. Prayers for the young woman who grew up with these horrendous crimes happening to her.

    I hope the men who raped the girl while he watched were also prosecuted. The men who paid for this online stuff could probably tell that the girl was not 18-20 and liked it because she did look so young. I wish the internet was not allowed to have any porn at all.

    There is always HOPE!!!

    She's 20 years old and the police have been investigating this case for two years. I imagine that she went to the police when she reached 18 years old. Perhaps, they wired her or tapped the phones until the dirtbags said something incriminating. I also hope and pray that this girl has a chance at a normal life. How absolutely disgusting that this mother would ever encourage much less allow her little girl to be used in such a fashion. Pathetic.
