The Mommy Pimp


A mother took her 13-year-old daughter and a 14-year-old friend on an overnight shopping trip. While at a mall in White Plains, New York, they “ran into” Gilberto Gonzalez, who is 19, and Michael Berger, who is 18.

I can’t quite imagine what happened in that interaction at the mall because the next part of the story is inconceivable: the two men met the mother and the two girls at a room in the Crowne Plaza Hotel. For sex. With the girls. With the mother’s collusion. She provided the beer.

The two men had sex with the 13 and 14-year-old girls while the mother was in the room!

That’s an outrage. But it gets worse.

The men are now being prosecuted for rape. That’s good.

The mother is being prosecuted for second-degree rape. Maybe good.

But the judge says he is going to sentence the woman to six months in jail and 10 years probation, if she convinces him “that she understands the seriousness of the crime.”

Six months in jail? Six months in jail? For pimping out your daughter? And a friend?

The judge is the one who doesn’t understand the seriousness of this crime.

His name is Judge Rory Bellantoni, 9th Judicial District, Westchester County, New York.

    I’d start it this way.

    1. Lose custody of the daughter. other kids?

    2. Lock her up for 5 years so she doesn’t have contact till daughter is an adult.

    3. then let’s talk about the punishment for pimping somebody else’s 14 y/o, alcohol, etc

    Exactly! I’m afraid that when they start talking about her “understanding” the severity of her crime, we’ll hear next that she needs “counseling.”

    I mean really. Nobody needs Parenting 101 to explain Rule #1: Don’t Pimp Your Kid. . .

  4. Jane Lathem says:

    If this woman did not “understand” beforehand that pimping her daughter was wrong, what makes the judge think that she does now? I think she should have the book thrown at her.

    I’m sure a good lawyer would claim that since right-wing fundamentalists have taken over the school, then the mother was trying to teach her daughter about sex in a controlled environment.

    What kind of sick mom gets off on watching while her own daughter has sex?

    Huh. On another note, based on some of her work, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would blink uncertainly at this girl’s age and ask, “What’s the big deal?”
