KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A Knox County mother was arrested on July 13 and charged in the sexual abuse of her teen daughter.

Christy Stipes was indicted on July 12 by the Knox County Grand Jury for facilitation of statutory rape by an authority figure, incest and aggravated perjury.

The sheriff's office says Stipes' daughter was 15 when she was abused by her father, Brian Massengill. He received a 25-year sentence earlier this year for child rape.

Two younger children in the household are living with other family members.

Stipes, also known as Christy Masengill, is being held in the Knox County Detention Facility on a $20,000 bond.

This case was a lengthy investigation by the sheriff's office family crisis unit.
