A woman from Protem is headed to prison for twelve years for using her daughter for prostitution.
A jury found Ann Margaret Williams, 45, guilty in June of promoting prostitution and endangering the welfare of a child for forcing her fifteen year-old daughter to have sex with sixty four year-old Billy Joe Hunter in 2006 - 2007.
In 2008 the teen gave birth to a child that was determined to be Hunter's through DNA testing.
Just before the baby was born, Williams’ daughter told investigators that she received money from Hunter for sex, and that Williams was present during all but one of the numerous sexual encounters.
