CONROE, Texas (AP) - 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 at a cost of $1,200.

Sarah Marie Peters, 25, was sentenced Thursday after earlier pleading guilty to charges that include promotion of prostitution.

Authorities said undercover officers in Montgomery County, north of Houston, encountered Peters online on a social media site. They said 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 February 22nd. Her daughter was placed in the custody of state Child Protective Services.
