SALT LAKE CITY - A SALT Lake City woman has been charged with offering her 11-year-old daughter's virginity to a man in exchange for US$10,000 (S$12,500). The woman was charged on Monday in Utah's 3rd District Court with two counts of aggravated sex abuse and two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. KTVX Channel 4 reports that court documents claim she made the offer after the man asked about oral sex with the girl. Police say the woman and the daughter would model lingerie for the man. The offer was discovered by the woman's boyfriend, who found multiple text messages discussing the proposal. The Associated Press is not naming the woman to avoid identifying the daughter. An attorney wasn't listed for the woman, who was in jail on Monday night. -- AP
