Sometimes you read something in the news that is so horrible, you have to read it three times to convince yourself it could be true. Such is the case of a 36-year-old mother from Michigan accused of holding her 3-year-old daughter's hand while the child's father sexually assaulted the child. Essentially, cops say the mom helped the dad assault their daughter!

The story is horrific. It's heinous. But it gets worse.

According to police, the mother -- whose name is being withheld because it could identify her child, a rape victim -- was herself a victim of sexual assault as a child. The mom's abuse started at the tender age of 5. She was abused by a number of men as a child, and then further abused by her own husband as an adult.

Does it excuse her alleged behavior? Certainly not.

There is no excuse for standing by when a child is raped.

And yet, it does explain it, at least a little.

Psychologists have identified what's known as the cycle of sexual abuse, whereby someone abused as a child is at a markedly increased risk of being a perpetrator when they grow up. Although it's more common in male victims, it happens to women too.

Sexual abuse is what they know.

It's easy to look at this woman and think, what kind of mother would allow this to happen to her child? What kind of mother would stand idly by as her child was violated?

But she didn't stand idly by, at least not according to the police reports. She reportedly held the girl's hand during the assaults so "it wouldn’t hurt that much." There was, it sounds, at least a seed of compassion, a sense that the child needed her. If she was a complete monster, would she have bothered to comfort her child?

Was it enough to excuse her actions? Enough to make her sympathetic?

I don't know. My stomach is still turning by the horror of what this little 3-year-old went through, seemingly at the hands of the two people who were supposed to care for her most. SHE is the one I feel for here.

Mom's background and holding her daughter's hand are certainly not enough to keep her out of the courts. The mother is being charged with two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct (her husband is facing stiffer penalties -- 12 counts of first degree criminal conduct).

How do you feel about this mother? Do you have any compassion for what she's been through or only contempt for what police say she has done?

No! My father and his sisters were molested their entire childhood by their father. In fact, so much, that they beleived it was normal. My father NEVER laid a hand on me. As a matter of fact, rarely showed any kind of affection towards my brother and I due to not wanting anyone to think he was the same as his father. In my opinion, this mother should share the same penalties as the father! I hope this poor child recovers completely with no memory of this horrible event.

Lock these two sickos up for ever in fact bury them in hell and never let them mingle in the real world again!! How tragic for this little one, I pray that some day with help she overcomes this and turns out to be fine!!!! Leave the children alone you sick perverts!!!!!!!

There is no excuse or explanation for this! That poor baby, what she went through. The father should be castrated, and the mother should be locked up for life! I can't even imagine what that poor baby was feeling..........

I agree all the way Floundering. Everything I want to say I can't, because it's pretty bad.

Its events like these that make me wish we could bring back the days of public hangings in the town square. Barbaric? Yes. Is it deserved? Yes again. Some crimes are so heinous that it would be appropriate punishment.

Vengeance is mine.. Saith the Lord.

And this monster will receive his judgment at the white throne judgment. Those of you that know what the White throne is, you know what follows.

eternal damnation to hell.
