A Wisconsin man was sentenced to 60 years in prison on Friday for trying to sell his 4 year old daughter for sex. Andrew Turley, 30, was convicted for the trafficking of a child and compelling prostitution of someone under the age of 18.
In 2015, Turley submitted an advertisement on Craigslist with the title “Play With Daddie’s Little Girl”. Turley unknowingly exchanged emails with undercover Houston Police Department officers and wrote that he had a girl “younger than 10” that he would give “sleep meds” to before the encounter, the district attorney’s office reported.
Turley informed the undercover cop that he would charge $1,000 for two hours with his daughter, and wrote that the girl may be “too young for intercourse but everything else was OK”, Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg’s Office stated.
The undercover officer arrived at the location where Turley and his daughter were at, and Turley then counted the money and led him to a bedroom where the child was laying on a bed and appeared to be under the influence.
Turley was handed two 30 year sentences for each of the charges and will be eligible for parole in 45 years.
