For Sale: My Daughters Virginity. Price: $10,000 OBOMeredith Carroll
Oh, relax. Not my daughter’s virginity. But as ridiculous as it sounds, there is a mom out there who did make such a ridiculously horrifying offer.
A Salt Lake City woman has been charged in Utah’s 3rd District Court with two counts of aggravated sex abuse and two counts of sex exploitation of a minor. Court documents show she made the offer after a man asked about oral sex with her 11-year-old daughter.
According to police, the mom and daughter would model lingerie for the man. It was the woman’s boyfriend who discovered the horrendous proposal after he came across text messages between the mom and the bidder.
Thankfully the boyfriend discovered this and had the decency to do the right thing.
What parent in her right mind would do this is beyond me, which makes me suspect this woman must not be in her right mind. But whatever mind she’s in, hopefully it won’t see the light of day for a long, long time, and there’s someone responsible enough in the little girl’s life who will step in post-haste and properly care for and love her instead of literally trying to pimp her out.
