Florida mom accused of offering man sex with her 10-year-old daughter for $5

A Florida mom was arrested after she tried to offer her daughter up for sex for $5 and tried to sell her child for $20, according to authorities. 

The 32-year-old woman, who officers did not name to protect the child's identity, was arrested and charged with selling or surrendering a minor for money or property and child abuse, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office. 

The incident happened recently in downtown Jacksonville. 

A local kindergarten teacher who was dropping off food at a nearby homeless shelter said the mother approached her.

"Take her with you. Give me $20, you can have her," the woman allegedly said. 

A man also told investigators that the mom offered her daughter up for sex for $5, officers said. That man did not report the incident to police until he was approached by officers.

"The 10-year-old was crying, hungry, and looked like she had not bathed in days," a spokesperson for the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said in a statement. 

Investigators said the daughter was "severely lethargic," so she was taken to a local hospital for treatment, officers said. 

"She has been temporarily placed in a safe environment as the case moves through the court system," the sheriff's office said.
