Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- A Fargo woman faces a felony charge for hindering the sexual assault investigation of her 12-year-old daughter.

The woman told police her daughter recanted. The daughter accused her mother's live-in boyfriend of performing sex acts on her in February.

The mother's boyfriend, 37-year-old Anthony Sells was charged with gross sexual imposition for that crime. Relatives of the woman say she tried to talk her daughter into recanting, by saying Sells would go to jail, it would be all her fault, and she would be taken from her family.

There's an arrest warrant out for both Sells and the woman. They are believed to be on the run. We can't identify the woman, to protect the juvenile victim.
