SALINAS, Calif.—A California man accused of selling his 14-year-old daughter into marriage for $16,000, beer and meat has pleaded no contest to felony child endangerment.
Marcelino de Jesus Martinez had pleaded not guilty in February to procuring a child for lewd acts, aiding and abetting statutory rape and child endangerment. If convicted of those charges he faced 10 years in prison.
Martinez went to police to get his daughter back because payment wasn't made.
Got that, people? Father sells daughter for beer & meat, doesn't get paid, the complains to the police.
Instead of locking him up on my taxpayer dollar, why not throw him out of the country all sliced up and what not? Take a knife to his face, maybe even carve an obscenity in there, let the 14 year old daughter do it, and put a GPS tracking device on this goon so we know when he tries to enter the country again?
If these types of hard lines are taken with scum like this, do you really think illegal immigration - especially the absolute WORST countries like Mexico have to offer - would be a problem?
