A woman who charged people money to have sex with her 16-year-old daughter was sent on Tuesday to five years in jail.
The Jerusalem District judge who reviewed the case, also ruled that the mother, 49, needed to pay the daughter NIS 30,000 in damages, after the mother offered to compensate her daughter.
The court convicted the mother of offering sexual services to clients. The daughter had grown up until she was 14 years old with her grandparents and at several boarding schools, before she moved in with her mother.
The court also said that the mother turned her daughter into a prostitute "not out of malice, but out of a twisted desire to fulfill her maternal duties."
