Sarah Marie Peters, 25, of Huston, Texas, was arrested last week after trying to sell her daughter, a 2-year-old girl, to a man for sex. The arrest came after Peters met with a man she spoke with online and offered to sell him her daughter for 1,200 dollars. The man, who was an undercover police officer, took Peters into custody after their meeting in Conroe, Texas.
The child was taken into the custody of state Child Protective Services following an investigation of the Montgomery County Precinct 1 Constable's Office, which led to her mother's arrest on Thursday.
Peters has pleaded guilty to attempted human trafficking, promotion of prostitution of a child and sexual performance of a child. She received a sentence of 40 years in prison and will be eligible for parole in 2038.
