(KTVI) – According to The Gaurdian, an American woman living in the U.K. is now serving a five-year prison sentence after admitting to child cruelty charges. The mother forced her adopted 14-year-old daughter to artificially inseminate herself for almost two years.

This came after the mother was denied adoption of a fourth child. The young girl, terrified to refuse her mother’s orders, became pregnant at 16 by donor sperm bought on the internet. When the child was born, midwives were worried by the mother’s over-bearing nature and called child protection services.

The mother’s name has not been released to protect the identity of the daughter and grandchild.
