When people fall on hard times, sometimes drugs are the only thing they can turn to with any certainty. People will do anything for drugs.
Some manage to maintain a job in between their sessions and use it recreationally. The lowest of lives who require the highest highs don’t have that ability.
Their whole life falls apart to make room for more drugs, and they do far worse things to chase that fleeting feeling of satisfaction. They rob, they steal, they give up their body – or the bodies of others.
April Corcoran was sentenced to 51 years in prison when she was found guilty of selling her 11-year-old daughter’s body for sexual favors in exchange for heroin.
Her need for a high cost her daughter everything but her life, and it sent her to jail with no hope of redemption.
10 All For A Fix
April Corcoran had a relationship with Shandell Willingham, her drug dealer. She allegedly worked for Willingham at first as a business associate.
She would clean homes and businesses to keep his other job a secret. She was incredibly poor, going so far as to live in a tent in her parent’s backyard.
She continued working intermittently while also raising her daughter in poverty. She had separated from her husband at some point as well and may have been receiving the necessary support from him while he worked elsewhere.
9 Chasing The High
When money wasn’t enough or ran out, April turned to her dealer and made a deal.
She brought up the idea of giving him free rein to sexually assault her daughter in controlled sessions when he wanted to exchange for her usual doses of heroin.
The dealer agreed and started raping her when she was just 11 years old. These assaults happened four times between February and June of 2014.
