A Sedgwick County jury today convicted a man and a woman in the sexual assault of a 5-year-old girl. Prosecutors said the woman allowed the man to pay for sex with her little girl so she could buy alcohol and cigarettes.
The jury found Reginald Stafford, 51, guilty of two counts of rape and one count of aggravated criminal sodomy. The woman was convicted of the same charges. KAKE News is not releasing the woman's name to protect her daughter.
Police say Stafford paid to have sex with the girl two years ago. Stafford and the girl's mother knew each other for years.
Sentencing is set for October 1st.
