JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. -- Action News has exclusive new details in the case of a mother accused of selling her daughter for sex to pay for drugs.

The exclusive new documents paint a picture of Dalina Nicholas. The paperwork describes men going behind closed doors, as a mom told her daughter to lay on the bed and take her clothes off. Nicholas is accused of selling her 6-year-old daughter for sex to feed a drug habit.
    
The reports detail a young child crying out for help. We uncovered it was a homeless man, who went to the home for drugs, that told police about the abuse. He says he didn't want to see the little girl cry anymore. One man told police Nicholas would sometimes get 2000 dollars a week in exchange for drugs.

Two of the men accused of having sex with the 6-year-old girl are Quinn Brooks and John Hagans. According to the paperwork, this isn't the first time Hagans was accused of this crime. In 2009 he was questioned, but never officially charged.

We also found evidence of doubt by police investigators about DCF investigators, including a statement saying they didn't find "indications of abuse."  We did talk with DCF about the comments in the documents. A spokesman says the investigator made ample attempts to see the children, and acted in their best interest.

The defendants trials are expected to happen in July.

@nativejax-don't shift the blame here. DCF employees have a tough case load and are expected to handle quite a bit. I am not sure what experience you have had in the past, but to make generalizations like that is not fair to the men and women who sacrifice their time and efforts making sure children are safe. It is a tragedy what happened to this girl, but DCF is not to blame.

Are you kidding me? The DCFS made "ample attempts to see the children and acted in their best interest"? NEVER in my 57 years have I EVER seen a single case worker DO THEIR JOB the way its suppose to be done to protect an abused child. And this child continued to endure this torture BECAUSE of them. Sorry liars.

Is she going to get life like they are trying to give 12 year old INNOCENT Cristian Frnandez. How about the person who abused the child is he getting life too?
