Authorities in Texas arrested two people late last week for allegedly attempting to sell a girl’s virginity for $10,000 according to the Dallas Morning News.

Police charged 32-year-old Cirino Santiago Delacruz and 33-year-old Adriana Aguilar on suspicion of human trafficking along with indecency with a child sexual contact. The Department of Homeland Security has also placed immigration holds on both suspects.

Delacruz faces an additional charge of promotion of prostitution of a person younger than the age of 18, the Dallas Morning News reported.

Cops booked Delacruz and Aguilar into the custody of the Collin County Detention Center.

Officials said police were notified of the illicit sex crime after the underaged victim, whose name is not released, told her parents.

According to Investigators, Aguilar allegedly knew the victim and asked her to go on an errand with her to Dallas. Instead, Aguilar then took the girl to an apartment where she met Delacruz.

Police said Delacruz purportedly offered to pay $10,000 to take her virginity, then forced her physically into a bedroom, where he started kissing her and putting his hands up her shirt.

However, when the victim resisted the sexual advances, Delacruz’, allowed her to leave the bedroom.

“Aguilar said the victim told her that she could not go through with having sex with Cirino and that she wanted to leave,” the affidavit stated, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The girl told police that Aguilar allegedly became upset at her for refusing to have sex with Delacruz, then demanded the victim not tell anyone what had taken place. Delacruz paid $100, and Aguilar kept a $50 cut before giving the rest to the girl.

Aguilar claimed that the girl had accepted the deal to have sex with Delacruz for money, which is why she took her to the apartment, according to police.

The suspect, “knowingly caused the juvenile victim to engage in sexual contact by placing the victim in the situation to be touched,” the affidavit stated.
