(KMOV.com) – A Metro East mother and her boyfriend are facing possible prison time after prosecutors said the mother's child was sexually abused.

Dondre LeFlore is with five counts of criminal predatory sexual assault of a child. His girlfriend, Leshanah Mosby, is charged with permitting sexual abuse of a child. LeFlore allegedly abused the then 10-year-old child over a span of more than one year. If LeFlore is convicted, he could face 150 years in prison.

“There's still a lot left unknown in this kind of unusual case. It'll take us awhile to really figure out what was happening in this home,” said Madison County State's Attorney Tom Gibbons.

Gibbons said Mosby is facing charges because she was aware of what was going on, but did nothing to stop the abuse. Mosby could serve 15 years in prison if she is convicted.

“The mother of this child had responsibility to protect and failed to do that knowing about the abuse,” Gibbons said.

The child is now in the custody of a relative.
