OKEECHOBEE -- A mother is under arrest, accused of selling a 12-year-old daughter into prostitution and trading a 14-year-old daughter for a car.
The youngest girl and her mother were living out of their car, and the prostitution was for food and an occasional shower at the men's homes, according to a report by Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office Detective K.J. Ammons.
The youngest daughter is three months pregnant, the report said, and the girl was 11 when her mother first forced her to have sex with a man. She charged $20 for the sex.
The older daughter refused to be used as a prostitute and was sold for a car, deputies contend.
"She was sold to a man for a Mercury Cougar," Ammons said. "But he never gave the mother the vehicle."
Ammons said the car has an estimated value of $500 to $1,000....
