SALT LAKE CITY – A hearing is set for a Salt Lake City woman charged with offering her 13-year-old daughter's virginity to a man for $10,000.
The 32-year-old woman was charged Monday in Utah's 3rd District Court with two first-degree felony counts of aggravated sex abuse of a child and two second-degree felonies. She now is set to appear in court Friday.
If convicted, she faces life in prison sentence for each first-degree felony.
Prosecutors say the woman discussed selling her daughter's virginity to an adult male in text messages which were seen by the woman's boyfriend, who called police.
Authorities say the girl initially agreed to the sex-for-money arrangement, but later told her mother she didn't want to do it. The Associated Press isn't naming the woman to avoid identifying the daughter.
