The mother of an alleged victim of child molestation is facing some serious charges of her own. Authorities say the woman offered to keep quiet about the incident if the suspect gave her $20,000.

The situation is being investigated in Sidney, Nebraska. The woman’s name is not being released to protect the identity of her child.

The Cheyenne County sheriff’s department says 55-year old Jason Frei of Potter groped a 7-year old girl while he was giving her mother a massage on August 15. The woman reported the incident later. When authorities investigated, Frei said the woman said she would not report the molestation if he paid her the money.

A court document says a bank withdrawal receipt suggesting he paid the woman half of her demands. The 29-year-old mother has been charged with extortion.
