Two guilty of using girl to exchange sex for drugs
Kimberly Michelle Breeden and Alvin Avery Overman, both of Tullahoma, are facing 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to using the woman’s teenage daughter to exchange sex for crack cocaine.
Their guilty pleas were entered Wednesday before Judge Craig Johnson in Coffee County Circuit Court.
The two were charged with seven counts of statutory rape by an authority figure and seven counts of incest, each involving Breeden’s daughter, in 2011 and 2012. The girl was 13 and 14 years old at the time of the incidents.
Breeden and Overman along with two others were arrested after they were indicted in January 2013.
Investigators alleged during their investigation that Breeden forced the girl to have sex with two men in exchange for crack cocaine and that Overman also had sex with the girl several times. Prosecutors also allege that Breeden took part in the sexual activity.
Andre Maupins has already been sentenced to serve 45 days of a two-year sentence on a charge of statutory rape. The other man is still facing court proceedings.
Police alleged that Breeden often provided crack cocaine, marijuana and alcohol to her daughter.
Judge Johnson accepted the plea agreement for Breeden and Overman.
Breeden was represented by attorney Josh Powell while Overman was represented by Ed North. Assistant District Attorney Jason Ponder prosecuted the case.
Breeden and Overman are to appear in Circuit Court July 9 to begin their 20-year prison sentences.
