Newton Mother Accused of Letting Man Have Sex with Her 11-Year-Old Daughter

A Newton Mother is charged with child endangerment after police say she allowed a friend to sleep with her 11-year-old daughter. The charges came to light after it was discovered the now 12-year-old victim is pregnant.

Thirty-seven-year-old Tina Durant didn’t have much to say to us when we showed up at her Newton home. “I’m not saying anything ’til I talk with my lawyer.”

But the police report says plenty. According to Newton police, Durant knew that now 24-year-old Jacob White was sleeping with her 11-year-old daughter in the same bed in their home. According to the police report, “During the investigation several witnesses were identified who had lived in the same residence and observed the 11-year-old victim sleeping in the same bed with the 23-year old. Witnesses indicated that they addressed it with the victim’s mother, Tina Durant, who refused to take action.”

According to the police report, during a doctor’s appointment, the alleged victim was heard telling her mother, “I tried to tell you several times.”

Durant says there’s more to the story but she won’t say what. “I told them everything that I said and what went on and they still won’t believe me,” she said.

Neighbors like Gordon Jones aren’t surprised by the charges. “No. Nothing surprises me anymore,” he said, “Just too much stuff goes on over there. People go in and out. You never know who’s going and coming any time day or night.”

Jones says Durant belongs in jail. “Yeah I mean she has all kinds of people going in and out all the time. Then they had a bunch of pit bulls over there but they disappeared. You never know what’s going on over there.”

Jacob White has been charged with third degree sexual abuse.
