In September, a 23-year-old British man, who claimed he was married to a woman named Lisa, was arrested and charged with online rape, sexual exploitation of a child and sex trafficking.
Lisa, who was initially charged with four counts of rape and five counts of sexual exploitation, was eventually found not guilty of all charges.
Her husband was charged with eight counts of sex trafficking and a further four charges of possessing child pornography.
It is unclear whether Lisa has retained an attorney.
Lisa’s lawyer, who requested anonymity, said she was looking for a way to get justice for her daughter.
She said the family is still trying to work out how to proceed, and that it would be up to the judge to decide.
“I have asked that the court dismiss the charges against Lisa and that she be released,” said the lawyer.
Lisa told police she met the man online in December 2015 and had sex with him for the first time in August 2016, while they were in his car.
She told police he was in his early twenties, about 5ft 6in tall, had a thick build, had tattoos on his body and he wore black gloves.
Lisa had sex over several months, and in February this year she gave birth to a baby boy.
A Facebook post from Lisa’s brother, Josh, described her as “kind, loving and kind hearted”, adding: “She loves her husband, she loves her daughter, she has the best friends in the world.
A spokesperson for the Serious Crime Directorate said it was aware of Lisa’s case and was working to investigate further. “
She is a beautiful person, she is an inspiration to all who know her.”
A spokesperson for the Serious Crime Directorate said it was aware of Lisa’s case and was working to investigate further.
“We are aware of her case and are investigating the matter,” a spokesperson said.
The spokesperson said Lisa was being interviewed by police and had been released pending further investigation.
Lisa and her brother were both studying to be nurses when they were arrested.
They are due to appear at Preston Magistrates’ Court on June 29.
