A Utah woman accused of trying to sell her 13-year-old daughter's virginity has pleaded guilty to forcing the girl to model for men in her underwear.
The 33-year-old woman made the plea Monday in Salt Lake City to two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
She also faced two counts of aggravated sex abuse of a child, but prosecutors dropped those charges in exchange for her plea. She faces up to 30 years in prison at sentencing Dec. 5.
Authorities say she had her daughter model in underwear for a man to whom she was offering to sell the girl's virginity for $10,000. She also took cellphone pictures of the girl and sent them to another man.
The Associated Press isn't naming her to avoid identifying her daughter.
