CONROE (CBSDFW.COMAP) — A Houston woman has been sentenced to 40 years in prison after pleading guilty to charges that she offered to sell her 2-year-old daughter for sex. Her asking price was $1,200.

Twenty-five-year-old Sarah Marie Peters was sentenced Thursday after earlier pleading guilty to charges that include promotion of prostitution.

Authorities say undercover officers in Montgomery County, north of Houston, encountered Peters online on a social media site. They say she forwarded photos of young girls and asked if there was anyone who wanted “to have fun” with her daughter.

Detectives watched Peters board a bus in Houston with her daughter to travel to Conroe where she thought she was meeting a man who would pay for the child.

Peters was arrested on Feb. 22. Her daughter was placed in the custody of state Child Protective Services.

    We require appropriate testing for many important activities because of the potential harm that could come to others – driving a motor vehicle, becoming a pilot, building a bridge or house.

    Like driving a motor vehicle, having children is not just a right, it is a responsibility. For the childrens’ and society’s sake we really need to consider some sort of required screening/testing in order to have children.

    1. it wouldn’t have mattered. You can tell she had access to children by acting like she was a left leaning family oriented animal and child lover. The mugshot doesn’t give you the same impression as her normal photos.
