UNIONTOWN, Pa. (CBS/AP) A 34-year-old western Pennsylvania woman who police say couldn't have another child took a disturbing approach to the problem: she conspired to drug her 13-year-old daughter, so her boyfriend could try to impregnate her.
The Uniontown mother was slated for trial Monday, but instead took a plea deal, reports The Tribune-Review. She admitted to criminal conspiracy, endangering the welfare of a child, corruption of a minor and unauthorized administration of intoxicants.
According to police, the mother couldn't have more children and was desperate for a child with her boyfriend, 42-year-old Dewayne Calloway. She had reportedly asked her teenage daughter if she would be willing to bear Calloway's child, but the girl refused.
So, the woman spiked the girl's beverages on two separate occasions, using rum the first time and over-the-counter sleeping pills the second, reports The Tribune-Review. Calloway allegedly attempted to impregnate the girl, but luckily the teenager awoke and was able to fight him off on both occasions.
Calloway, is scheduled for trial next month on charges including attempted rape of an unconscious person, indecent assault, and conspiracy. His attorney maintains he is innocent.
