Bad news in Utah. Felicia Rae McClure is going to have to withdraw her “mother of the year” application. Yeah, the 32-year-old Utah “mother” has been caught reinventing herself at the expense of her 13 -year-old daughter. Desperate times create desperate people, but some actions really push the envelope. In this case, however, I’m sure that the bad economy would just be a bad excuse.
Whatever. It turns out that Felicia has a boyfriend. Readers of this blog know that this usually means a mother’s penis-lust causes her to trade in her maternal instincts for the satisfaction of her more “basic” instincts. Thankfully Felicia didn’t have any maternal instincts to trade in, but I digress. Typically the boyfriend then proceeds to abuse her children in whatever fashion he chooses while ‘mom’ looks the other way. Not so in this case. In fact, this time the boyfriend is actually the HERO and not the villain.
Richard Glazer, Felicia’s boyfriend, came across some rather interesting photographs of Felicia’s 13-year-old daughter on Felicia’s cell phone. Puzzled, he checked out the text messages “mom” had stored there. What he found probably scarred him for life. We know it disgusted him enough that he made a call to the local police with said evidence from the phone. There, in all its literary glory, was a raft of text messages between Felicia and a man referred to in the arrest affidavit as “Don.” Subject? The sale of Felicia’s 13-year-old daughter’s virginity. Winning bid? $10,000. Don asked Felicia if her 13-year-old daughter would perform oral sex on him. Felicia told Don that the girl would not only provide oral sex, but any other sexual act, but since the girl was a virgin, Don would have to pay $10,000. You have to ask yourself how this man thought it was okay to even broach this subject with a mother of any child.
But wait – it gets worse.
Don and Felicia took the girl to the local Victoria’s Secret store. Since they never bought the girl anything, the purpose of the trip was for a little peep show, just to warm the girl up to Don and to whet Don’s appetite. At first the mother tried to make it sound like they both modeled for “Don” but when Felicia confessed to the police, she admitted that she opened the door for Don to watch her child dress and undress. There, with her mother holding the door open, Don watched as the 13-year-old tried on various bras and thong underwear combinations for his viewing pleasure.
Doesn’t that sweet image of mommie dearest showing off her little girl to a pedophile just tug at your heart strings? Not Felicia Rae McClure. This was the direction she had been heading for some time in regards to her little girl. It has been one thing sliding into another and pimping her daughter has been a natural progression for Felicia. This latest episode with Don is just a logical extension of Felicia pushing the envelope and seeing what the market will offer for her pimping endeavors.
Felicia claimed she asked her daughter if she would mind losing her virginity to Don and Felicia swears her daughter agreed to it and was good with the whole deal. Actually, the girl told police she originally agreed to her mother’s request (doesn’t sound like it was posed as a question she could refuse), but that she had since told her mother that she didn’t want to go through with it. The 13-year-old said she was uncomfortable with having sex with Don and had changed her mind. We don’t really know what would have happened if the boyfriend hadn’t told the cops. The girl wanted to back out, but does anyone honestly believe that Felicia would have let that $10,000 slip away?
This business transaction is not the first time Felicia has used her little girl to make money. Turns out that Felicia took a bunch of semi-nude shots of her girl and sold them to another man (referred to as “Will” in the court documents) for cash. Apparently he requested them and she’s been providing the pervert with the photographs. It doesn’t mention if the girl knew about the photos being sold, but the child posed for photos with her mother at the camera – just a mom and daughter having a good time taking cheesecake shots right? Wrong! These sexually explicit shots (several with the girl’s entire buttocks exposed) were with mother-provided lingerie: push-up bras and anal-floss thongs.
Felicia is transforming herself from parent to pimp and it’s a sure bet that, little by little, she has been working on her daughter to accept the transition from expensive dependent to profitable prostitute. Like pedophiles the world over, grooming the victim takes time and small steps lead to big sacrifices on the part of the child. Talk about an unfair position of power. A girl’s mother is without doubt the most important person in her life. And a mother knows which buttons to push to get what they want from her child.
Most mothers are trying to protect their children from predators that would use and abuse them; Felicia McClure doesn’t see a daughter – she sees a money-making opportunity. Fresh flesh that is hers to peddle and eager men with money – KA-CHING!! Furthermore, who’s to say what disease the girl could get from Don? There was no “safe sex” clause mentioned in the pussy-for-pay deal.
Felicia’s daughter isn’t a legally consenting adult. At 13-years-old, she can’t drive, can’t vote, can’t consume alcohol, but hey, in Felicia McClure’s warped sense of reality, she can decide whether or not to engage in sexual activity with an adult? Get this: if the girl had been 14-years-old, then the prosecutor could not have charged Felicia with these serious felony counts and Felicia would not be facing life in prison as a result of her actions. That’s right. If the greedy c*** had waited a year, then she would have likely walked away with probation and the proverbial slap on the wrist. Let’s hear it for the stupidity of greed, shall we?
The prosecutor’s office is investigating Don and Will to see if there are charges that can be laid against them. True, I don’t know about Utah’s laws, but wouldn’t requesting, receiving and paying for sexually explicit photographs of a 13-year-old child constitute some type of child pornography violations?
Thanks to her boyfriend, Felicia Rae McClure has been arrested and has been charged with two first-degree felony counts of aggravated sex abuse of a child, which carry life in prison as a maximum sentence, and two second-degree felony counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, which can carry a penalty of zero to fifteen years. As of May 24, 2011, Felicia Rae McClure was still in jail on a $250,000 bond. She didn’t have a lawyer yet, but I’m sure some weasel will come crawling out of the woodwork to take on her case and try to make a name for him/herself.
Felicia McClure has a criminal record (I know, shocking) for forgery and other business related felonies. She had serious charges dropped in 2007 when she completed a court-mandated drug program. Obviously the whole “lesson learned” thing hasn’t taken.
There was no mention as to who is currently in charge of the girl’s care at this time, but I sincerely hope that Felicia, regardless of the outcome of her charges, no longer has custody of the child. No child should be made to sell their flesh and peddle their souls for the greed of their parents. Life sucks enough as it is without having “mom” as your pimp.
