Shizuoka woman held for prostituting 15-yr-old daughter to 71-yr-old ex-husband

A 55-year-old woman was arrested under child prostitution and child pornography laws on Wednesday, accused of forcing her 15-year-old daughter to engage in indecent behavior with her ex-husband – a 71-year-old man she was married to after she got divorced from her original husband with whom she had the girl.

Police accuse the woman, a part-time employee, of taking her daughter to her second ex-husband’s house in Shizuoka City in June last year, forcing her to engage in indecent behavior. Police said the woman received about 20,000 yen from him and gave her daughter about 10,000 yen from that.

Police said the case came to light when the man went to the Shizuoka Central police station and confessed last month. They said they intend to a pursue charge against him also under child prostitution and child pornography laws. The girl told police her mother forced her to do it, and the woman has admitted to the allegation, telling police she needed money.

Wow I can't imagine pimping out my own daughter. As if life is not hard enough being a teenager.

womanforwomen: Basis for thinking- read JT news, watch NHK news, read Seicho Matsumoto and talk to Japanese freinds.

Dear God! Its worse than I thought. This is a nice list of ways to completely NOT get a proper handle on the big picture. A pile of individual incidents in a country of 127,000,000 people is not enough to declare anything "rampant". And neither JT nor NHK feels it has any responsibility to clue you in as to the big picture. All they care about is getting you to read or watch, and all news is hand picked to do just that.

Prove it. Not to us, because the mod will not allow it, but I think you have no good basis for thinking this "rampant" in Japan and Japan alone.

Basis for thinking- read JT news, watch NHK news, read Seicho Matsumoto and talk to Japanese freinds. Someone has instilled in their minds that when you have problems, one can do anything like killing, stealing or lying but never beg.Asking for help is losing your pride, self-respect or dignity.

So rather than ask friends, immediate family or neighbours for help, the woman sought to find money using her daughters body.I love it when people dress up, look nice, etc but just imagine the amount of money and time people here give towards vanity. Most certainly, that is going to take its toll at some point in their lives. This is the result. So people should be made aware of this. Read After school notes by ...Yamada: tells very clearly the thinking of the young ones about beauty, love, prostitution, values..

If the J majority does not approve this then why such incidents are rampant?

Do something about it.

What would you like to see done? I do not think instilling the desire in people to TURN THEMSELVES IN can fairly be termed "doing nothing". You?

First of all, the majority population can encourage everyone to seek help in matters like this.

There are posters at schools that do just that. In a general sense mind you, and not clearly after being forced to prostitute by mom. That would be...excessive.

If the J majority does not approve this then why such incidents are rampant? No point just saying that you do not approve the acts of these criminals who are only a minority of the J population. Do something about it. Take this as a case in point and make people aware the consequences of such an act. First of all, the majority population can encourage everyone to seek help in matters like this.

I predict a suspended sentence and a comment by the judge on how such a "genki" 71 year old is hope for the future of Japan!

Japanese criminal law has only 2 provisions: (1) Do whatever you want. (2) Don't get caught. She broke No. 2. Caution: Be Careful!

not really hate them, but feel sorry for them. Look what they are doing unto themselves, their children and families. Read Crime section of JT for the past two days. What is happening to their moral standards. i think someone should start some fashion thing with some holy writings for name sake atleast.And all Js would follow that.

The Japanese majority does not approve of this. The people you read about in these articles are criminals, not an appropriate representation for an entire nation.

Ok lets start by saying it's a sick case but why in hell would the ex-husband just go in and freely confess? I don't quite buy that the mother was able to force the girl into this, my guess is the correct translation would be coerce.

This is warped on both ends of the age range. Guess there are two who should be going to jail. I wonder what happens to the girl? Who will take care of her?

This is 1 sick and twisted woman! I wonder if her mother or grandmother etc..did the same to her too?? Poor 15 year old with a 71 year old scum bug?? Just disgusting!!! PUKE!!!

I don't think that there is a word to describe this type of act. Disgusting is a good description though.

Yes, and I like the way how they put on a loving parent facade and go around doing senseless things.

Because a criminal has never tried to justify their crimes, right? Drop the generalizations about an entire country of people because if you ever went on a world tour yourself, you'd see the same sad situations happening in countless nations.

Yes, and I like the way how they put on a loving parent facade and go around doing senseless things. J people go on a world tour and see how the other nations are tackling the same financial and other problems which are NO DIFFERENT to yours are managing.

They have their own silly notions about life and how they want to live a fancy life. To live a fancy life you need to be prudent and save money. Spendthrifts, looking down on others and having such a bad influence on other nations such as Philipines, Indonesia. I find it funny when those ladies start acting like Jwomen, carrying brand items. hahaha!

You sound like you do not like Japanese people at all. Reading this comment and others you have made, you either have some issues yourself or just hate Japanese people.

Seems like another bad case of "no self worth," on the adults behalf, which seems to be very common here. When adults degrade a childs esteem by acts like this, it clearly shows that the adults themselves have been "pimped" and have self value issues that they have not addressed yet.

I think it goes deep to the root of J-women mentality that they think their only tool for making money is their body.

The worst thing is, there's probably many more parents like this that haven't been caught yet.

It's good he had a conscience, but it's bad that he couldn't control himself to hold off. I wouldn't doubt the mom really tried to coerce him into this by the sound of it and by him turning himself in later. I know, it could have been other reasons, but that's what it intially sounds like to me. Anyway... onward!

This is why I'm happy for another story in JT that television may be on the bring of obsolescence. Not that Japanese TV programming is totally responsible for these kinds of things, but it definitely has an influence. Women on JTV are always bikini clad doing nonsensical things to make money. Girls grow up watching this and think that the only way to make a quick buck is by showing some skin and/or having no self worth. How many J-women have a dream to be Doctors, Lawyers, Business owners? It's a sad situation, but I think it goes deeper than just a mother prostituting her daughter. I think it goes deep to the root of J-women mentality that they think their only tool for making money is their body.

Sounds like they only got caught in this act becuase the ex had a guilty conscience. I am taking it like the mother daughter have worked like this before and the daughter is ok with it. Why split it half way if the mom needs money? What is a 15 year old going to do with 10,000 yen? Buy clothes, shoes and make up? Got to remember, these young ones are influenced by the TV and being all so cute. Some of them are still working the streets to get that money from men anyway they can.

Too bad for the kid... who's gonna bring her up now? What was this mother thinking? Divorced twice? Working part-time only? No child-support? (or not enough?) Not that I'm a perfect parent, but this woman doesn't deserve to be a mother and yet she is. The worst thing is, there's probably many more parents like this that haven't been caught yet.

Did I read that right - the ex-husband was a father figure to the girl during his intermediate marriage to the mother? He should be charged with incest as well. This is really sick.

Fortunately the guy came to confess. Who knows if the mother wouldn't have decided to continue with other men, seeing how much easy it was to make some money this way.

What mother in the World would do this to her own daughter? Just like in WWII.

All three should be charged and locked up for a while.

Arresting the victim of the crime, how does that help? That's like getting robbed then thrown in jail for carrying a wallet.

Interesting that a porno rap was added to the charges. Presumably they filmed it? When are the charges coming from all those who bought/downloaded/etc the footage?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Bloody sick. All that for just a handful of money, and once it's spent they have to live with it for the rest of their lives. I'm sure the mother has no problems with it, but the psychological scars for the daughter could be extreme, and life-altering (in a bad way). I hope she gets a hefty sentence, and the girl gets some help. The old guy should probably face some sort of punishment as well.

BBLeo, I dont know many 15 year olds who can get their own job, own apartment and start a new life with no assistance whatsoever. If you do, please let me know.

We all need money! Should we all get engaged into prostitution? What is the other hope for people that are strugling for their daily bread and butter. Girl was stupid enough listening to her mother, she should left her home, find herself a job and have good life ahead of her. All three should be charged and locked up for a while.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Agreed, this is just so vile. No other way to say it. Happy the guy came forward, but damn... The only positive on this I guess would be, at least the mom didn't force her to hook up with some stranger. Not that this is any better on any level.

Usually, Saitama is the provider of bizarre stories like this, but here comes Shizuoka with a Hail Mary. This is all so wrong on so many different levels, I won´t even start thinking about it.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

This is wrong on about seventeen different levels and in about fourteen different dimensions.

I just hope the poor kid doesn't grow up to be psychotic after being mistreated so much by nutter adults.
