GAITHERSBURG, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County prosecutors say a mother and a Gaithersburg man are facing charges for trading sex with the woman’s daughter to pay off a debt.

Prosecutors say the mother is facing 11 charges and Bejarni Rivas, 44, is facing 13 charges. Ramon Korionoff, a spokesman for the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office, says the charges range from second-degree rape to human trafficking.

Attorney Walter Neighbors, who is listed in online court records as representing Rivas, said Sunday that he did not have any comment on the case.

Court documents show the mother owed $5,000. The documents say the alleged arrangement ended when the 15-year-old daughter told a relative and the two went to police.
