The mother of a 2-year-old little girl in Wisconsin is being investigated on suspicion that she allowed her boyfriend and another man to sexually abuse the child while she was present.
25-year-old Azzie C. Watson was taken into custody on June 29 when she failed to appear in court as ordered regarding drug charges, and her kids were placed in a foster home when she was jailed.
While changing the 2-year-old girl’s diaper the foster parent became concerned by her emotional behavior and she, along with her 1-year-old brother, was taken to the Children’s Mercy Hospital for assessment.
Both of the youngsters had metal fragments lodged in the bottom of their feet, and it was reported that the little girl showed medical signs indicating there was a possibility that she had been raped. She also tested positive for an STD and had methamphetamine present in her bloodstream according to her medical records.
Watson’s boyfriend, 43-year-old Charles D. Green, who was arrested that day on unrelated charges reportedly gave law enforcement officers who were at the hospital copies of recordings depicting a woman’s voice, who allegedly sounded like Watson, saying that she gave the two men permission to have sex with her daughter and had seen it taking place.
When the police spoke with Watson on July 10 about the condition of her children she said that their feet were likely the result of them walking around barefoot in her boyfriend’s motorcycle shop where they also reside. She said that she did not know how her daughter could have contracted a sexually transmitted infection, but that she did use methamphetamine at home which may have exposed the child to the substance.
Regarding the recording that Green provided the police Watson stated that she was the voice heard, but that what was on the recording was not the truth. She said that she only made those comments because she was fearful of how Green would react if she did not.
Watson is being held at the Wyandotte County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bond, and she is facing charges of abuse or neglect, and endangering the welfare of a child for possessing methamphetamine in the presence of children.
Green has also been charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child for possessing methamphetamine in the presence of both children.
No one has been brought up on charges for the sexual allegations, and the case is still under investigation.
