SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah woman accused of trying to sell her 13-year-old daughter's virginity has pleaded guilty to sending sexually suggestive pictures of the girl to a man.
The 33-year-old woman made the plea Monday in Salt Lake City to two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. She also had faced two first-degree felony counts of aggravated sex abuse of a child and life in prison if convicted.
Prosecutors agreed to drop those charges in exchange for her plea. She now faces up to 30 years in prison at sentencing Dec. 5.
Authorities say she used a cell phone to send the photos to a man to whom she was trying to sell the girl's virginity for $10,000.
The Associated Press isn't naming her to avoid identifying her daughter.
