A Texas woman who pleaded guilty to trying to sell her 2-year-old daughter for sex was Thursday sentenced to 40 years in prison.

Sarah Marie Peters, 25, entered a guilty plea after she was charged with the sexual performance of a child, attempted human trafficking and promotion of prostitution of a child, all of which were misdemeanor violations, to jail records.

Her arrest came after the Montgomery County District 1 Constable’s Office conducted an investigation into the exploitation of children, ABC13 reported.

During that time, Peters, of Houston, agreed to sell her daughter for sex with a man in exchange for $1,200. She was arrested shortly after she brought her daughter to Conroe, Texas, to the man, who is an undercover agent, the news station reported.

Peters will be eligible for parole in 2038.
