Prosecutors and law enforcement officials say a local woman stood by and did nothing while her then 10-year-old relative was raped.
On Wednesday, Neccia K. Wood, 38, 600 block Cleveland Road E., was arrested by Erie County Sheriff’s deputies on a warrant after she was secretly indicted by an Erie County grand jury earlier this month for the alleged incident, believed to have occurred five years ago.
Law enforcement officials are still searching for the co-defendant, who was also secretly indicted, acting Huron police Chief John Majoy said.
Wood faces two counts of complicity to rape, complicity to disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, two counts of illegal use of a minor in a nudity-oriented material or performance, endangering children and complicity to commit kidnapping. If convicted on all counts, she could spend up to 55 years in prison and pay a $107,500 fine.
Huron police began investigating on March 20 after the girl, now 15, told another person, who reported the alleged rape to police.
The girl was also allegedly forced to watch adult-oriented videos, Majoy said.
