In a bizarre and depraved case of alleged child abuse, police in Carnation, Washington accuse Mary Miles of bringing her fourteen year old daughter to a truck stop in North Bend for the purpose of selling her daughter’s virginity to Miles’ boyfriend Bryan Murphy.
The two agreed on a child exploitation scheme where Miles is alleged to have entered Murphy’s truck with her daughter. Miles and he then engaged in a sex. When Murphy then grabbed the daughter’s leg she became extremely distressed and escaped the truck. She walked several miles to a middle school where she met with her seventeen year old sister who then called police.
Police the next day interviewed Murphy who consented to a search of her cell phone. She admitted to police that Murphy wanted to have sex with both the daughters but preferred the fourteen year old because she was a virgin.
During the cell phone search police describe a depraved exchange was found between Miles and Murphy where Miles offered to arrange for a sexual encounter with the fourteen year old girl in exchange for half a month’s rent. Murphy agreed with a rather stunning response.
Miles sent a message back saying, “Ok you can have (the 14-year old).” Murphy also sent Miles a message saying he bought a wedding ring and would marry her “the day after I pop (the 14-year-old girl’s) cherry,” according to prosecutors.
Miles claimed that the girl agreed to have sex with Murphy in exchange for four hundred dollars but admitted that she arranged the sexual encounter. Consent of the minor is irrelevant per Washington State Law. She also is alleged to have originally tried to protect Murphy by refusing to fully cooperate with police as to his identity.
Law Enforcement Officers arrested Murphy in Oklahoma. Miles is charged with Commercial Sex Abuse of a Minor.
