MOM WHO TRIED TO SELL DAUGHTER'S VIRGINITY GUILTY
Cops say the woman who has not been named to avoid identifying the girl, forced her to model twice in her bra and underwear in front of a potential buyer.
Initially the girl agreed but later changed her mind.
Her mom also tried to sell sexually explicit pictures of the girl to another man, but she was busted when her boyfriend found text messages about the sale of the girl’s virginity on the woman’s cellphone which he turned over to police.
A source close to the investigation said: "Even experienced officers were shocked by the callous way she was prepared to trade her daughter for money.
"She seemed to be treating it like a cold business transaction, like she was selling a TV or dry goods. It was shocking."
The 33-year-old woman had also faced two first-degree felony counts of aggravated sex abuse of a child which carries a life sentence but prosecutors agreed to drop those charges in exchange for her plea.
She now faces up to 30 years in prison at sentencing Dec. 5.
Oddly, none of the men involved have been charged.
