Jacksonville, FL — Police say 35-year-old Dalina Nicholas repeatedly pimped her six-year-old daughter out to homeless men in exchange for cash and crack.
Police found out about her alleged activity after a homeless man doing drugs in her home witnessed Nicholas’ daughter being sexually assaulted and then flagged down police. An investigation was launched and after interviewing the victim, who described being raped by three men and being physical abused, warrants were issued for her mother and three other men.
Two of the three men accused of raping the little girl, 56-year-old Quinn Brooks and 47-year-old John Hagans, who is homeless, were arrested on the sexual assault charges. Police are still looking for 51-year-old Norman Thompson. Police were not able to arrest Dalina Nicholas as she had already fled the state.
She was eventually arrested in Georgia, as a fugitive from justice, and is currently being held on a child-neglect warrant. She is expected to be extradited to Florida as early as this week.
The victim and her younger brother have been placed in the care of their grandmother who says that her daughter is just as much a victim as her granddaughter. She says her daughter is a drug addict who was being held hostage by drug dealers in her own home and was not aware of what these men were doing to her daughter.
City police chief Bruce Thomason told a different story when he informed reporters that Dalina Nicholas had indeed been selling her daughter for various sex acts to support herself and her drug habit.
Witnesses told police that drugs were frequently used in Nicholas’ subsidized home, where she often let the homeless people stay. Neighbors said there was a lot of traffic at the house at all hours of the day and night.
DCF and the Children’s Home Society say they are providing the victim with therapy and counseling. I do hope this helps her to lead a happy, productive life. But if anyone were to ever get a pass for being a fuckup later in life, it’s a 6-year-old girl whose crackhead mother allowed them to be repeatedly raped by several homeless drug addicts.
