A Hodgenville woman was indicted by a LaRue County grand jury for allowing a teenage girl to engage in a sexual relationship with a man over the age of 21.

Triena Cote, 56, is charged with one count of complicity to commit third-degree rape, a Class D felony punishable by one to five years in prison, if convicted.

According to her indictment, sometime between Feb. 1 and July 31, Cote allowed her daughter, who was under the age of 16 when the allegations occurred, “to have a sexual relationship” with Matthew Vidrine.

Vidrine, 23, of Hodgenville, also was indicted Monday on one count of complicity to third-degree rape as well as one count of possession of matter portraying sexual performance by a minor, also a Class D felony.

Cote and Vidrine are scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 4 in LaRue Circuit Court.

Vidrine has been held in the LaRue County Detention Center since Aug. 1 on the rape accusations. Cote has not been arrested on the indictment as of Tuesday afternoon.

According to the indictments for Cote and Vidrine, their bond conditions include requirements about having no contact with the girl or each other.
