An Ohio woman accused of trading out sex with her 11-year-old daughter for heroin is now locked up on $5 million bond.
Judge Leslie Ghiz raised the bond of April Corcoran during her arraignment that followed her indictment on 27 charges. The charges include complicity to rape, trafficking in persons, corrupting another with drugs and endangering children.
Prosecutor Joe Deters said Corcoran would drop her daughter off at Shandell Willingham's Colerain Avenue apartment so he could have sex with her. Sometimes, Deters said he would videotape the encounter.
Deters said Corcoran would then come back and get heroin and her daughter. Corcoran is also accused of giving her daughter heroin. The sex acts are detailed in the indictment against Corcoran and Willingham. Corcoran's attorney asked for a reduced bond, citing her lack of criminal history.
He also says Corcoran was seeking drug treatment at the time of her arrest. Judge Ghiz increased bond because she said she feared Corcoran was a risk to herself and to the public.
She also ordered Corcoran to not have any contact with her daughter. The girl is now living out of town with her father.
Willingham is also facing charges.
