Couple Trades Sex with Daughter for Minivan

MACON, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a Central Georgia couple has
been sentenced in connection with charges that they traded sex with
their 14-year-old daughter for monthly payments on the family

Oconee Circuit District Attorney Timothy Vaughn said the 37-year-old mother pleaded guilty to child molestation and was sentenced to eight years in prison. Vaughn said the woman didn't physically abuse her daughter, but admitted trading sex with her for the 1998 Dodge Caravan.

Vaughn said the girl's 39-year-old father and former car dealership manager Robert Wayne Bearden both pleaded guilty tochild molestation and were sentenced to 10 years in prison.

    I can't imagine doing that to my children. Parents should be the protector not the abuser. This is sick. I hope they serve a long time prison sentence. Psalm 127:3 Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him

    I'm glad my parents were good people and never would have done anything like this.Those people thought more of their ride than they did of their daughter.Poor little girl having to do that.Her parents need to go to prison a long time.
