A Denver man has been charged by the District Attorney for sexual assault on a child. Mark Mathias, 48, allegedly arranged the assault through the girl's mother, who charged Mathias over nine months to have sex with her daughter.
A report from the District Attorney's Office states:
Mark Mathias has been charged with soliciting for child prostitution, sexual assault on a child, and sexual assault on a child pattern of abuse. The charges further allege that the defendant paid the victim's mother, who allowed the sexual assaults to occur. The mother was charged earlier with pimping of a child and pandering of a child and remains in custody in the Denver County Jail; her bond is set at $200,000.
According to Westword:
[Mathias] arranged to have sex over nine months with the fourteen-year-old daughter of a woman he paid for the privilege... The mother in question hasn't been named yet, but she's reportedly behind bars, as is Mathias.
Mathias is currently being held on $100,000 bond. He is to appear for formal advisement of the charges in Denver County court on November 11th.
