Damascus, Oregon (The Weekly Vice) - Barbara Whitehead, a 41-year-old Oregon woman was charged Wednesday after she allegedly married a man just two-hours after he was indicted for sexually abusing her 7-year-old daughter.

According to the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, Whitehead apparently had a secret wedding with a man shortly after a grand jury indicted him on 45 felony counts of sexual abuse against the woman's 7-year-old daughter.

Investigators say the man, identified as 47-year-old Donald Smock Jr., came under investigation after it was reported that he had been sexually molesting the child.

Smock reportedly fled the area after hearing he was under investigation while Whitehead reportedly was deemed to be "uncooperative" in an effort to find him.

When detectives had gathered enough information about the alleged abuse, prosecutors took the case to a Clackamas County grand jury who indicted Smock on 45 felony counts of child-sex related charges.

Just two hours after Smock's indictment, Whitehead is alleged to have married him in a secret wedding with the little girl looking on. After the wedding, the happy couple fled with the child to a Portland hotel where they reportedly celebrated a week-long honeymoon together.

"I've never seen anything like this," said Sheriff's Det. Jim Strovik. "This would appear to be a new low."

Wedded bliss came to an end for Smock when a witness spotted him in Damascus on Wednesday and called 911.

He was arrested and booked into the Clackamas County Jail on 13 counts of using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct, 8 counts of first-degree encouraging child sexual abuse, 1 count of first-degree attempted sexual abuse and 23 counts of second-degree encouraging child sexual abuse.

Whitehead's honeymoon paradise also ran smack into reality when she was arrested Monday.

She was booked into jail and then charged Wednesday with perjury, witness-tampering and hindering prosecution. Her bail was set at $150,000.
