OKEECHOBEE, Fla. (AP) -- 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 39-year-old woman's name is not being released to protect the girls' identity.
She is being held in the Okeechobee County Jail on 400,000-dollar bond.
Both girls have been turned over to the Department of Children & Families.
According to a Okeechobee Sheriff's Office report, the youngest girl and her mother were living out of their car.
The girl was prostituted for food and an occasional shower at the men's homes.
The report says the youngest daughter is currently three months pregnant and she was 11 when her mother first forced her to have sex with a man. She charged 20 dollars for the sex.
The older daughter refused to be used as a prostitute and was allegedly sold for a car.
