A Jacksonville Beach mother is being held in a Georgia jail after being accused of repeatedly selling sex with her 6-year-old daughter in exchange for drugs and money!
Police have also charged two men in the case with capital sexual battery, while at least one other suspect is being sought. 35 year old Dalina Nicholas, is being held on a child-neglect warrant in the investigation, which began in early January with a tip about the sexual abuse.
Nicholas was arrested in Muscogee County, Ga., as a fugitive from justice and will be extradited back to Jacksonville Beach as early as this week. The circumstances of how Nicholas was arrested are unknown.
The tip about the abuse came from a homeless man who flagged down a passing police officer and told him what had been going on in the home, said Sgt. Mark Evans, the lead detective in the case. The man said he’d been to the home to use drugs in the past and was aware of the abuse.
Police launched an investigation and then sought to arrest Nicholas after an interview with the daughter, who gave them details of sexual and physical abuse. Nicholas, by that time, had fled the area. The child and a sibling were being cared for by Nicholas’ mother and father.
The child, who was 6 at the time of the allegations and just turned 7, remains in the custody of the grandparents. She is receiving therapy and other treatment from state child welfare agencies, said John Harrell, a spokesman with the Department of Children and Families.
“I can’t think of an adjective that’s bad enough to describe [the allegations],” Thomason said. “Anyone who would harm a child is just beneath contempt.”
56 year old Quinn Brooks, seen above, of Jacksonville and 47 year old John Hagans, seen below, who is homeless, were charge last month with sexual battery in the case, police said Monday. They are being held in the Duval County jail.
Court records show that Nicholas has been arrested at least once in the Jacksonville area. She was charged in 2002 with possession of marijuana and was fined after pleading guilty. Records show Hagans has been arrested at least 35 times in Florida since 1983. His convictions include grand larceny, robbery and cocaine possession. Brooks has been arrested 10 times, with convictions for trespassing and dealing in stolen property.
