A Humansdorp mother appeared in court alongside her boyfriend yesterday after she allegedly took pictures of her naked 14-year-old daughter and forwarded them to his cellphone.
The couple, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the teenager, appeared in the Humansdorp Magistrate’s Court yesterday.
The case was postponed to July 17 as lawyer Alwyn Griebenow did not have adequate time to consult his client, the 31-year-old boyfriend.
Police spokesman Sergeant Majola Nkohli said the teenager discovered the naked pictures of herself on her mother’s cellphone and that she had forwarded them to her boyfriend.
Nkohli said it was not yet clear how many pictures had been sent.
The child is staying with her grandmother.
A case was opened by the teenager at the Thornhill police station yesterday and the couple were arrested.
