US woman accused of trying to sell 13-year-old daughter's virginity pleads guilty to sexual exploitation charges
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah woman accused of trying to sell her 13-year-old daughter's virginity pleaded guilty on Monday to two sexual exploitation charges for having the girl model in her underwear for men. The 33-year-old woman had also faced two first-degree felony counts of aggravated sex abuse of a child - and up to life in prison - but prosecutors agreed to drop those charges in exchange for her plea. She now faces up to 30 years in prison at sentencing on Dec 5. Authorities said the woman offered her daughter's virginity to a man in April in exchange for US$10,000 (S$12,628). Initially, the girl agreed to the arrangement and modelled twice in a bra and underwear for the man. Police said the girl then changed her mind.
