Man arrested for trading daughterMan arrested for trading daughter
A Californian man arranged to sell his 14-year-old daughter into marriage in exchange for 16,000 dollars, 100 cases of beer and several boxes of meat.
Police in Greenfield said they only learned of the deal after the 36-year-old man went to them to get his daughter back because payment was not made as promised.
The man was arrested on suspicion of human trafficking along with an 18-year-old man on suspicion of statutory rape. Investigators believe the girl went willingly with the man, but she is under California's legal age of consent and cannot legally marry.
