A Wisconsin man was sentenced Friday to 60 years behind bars in Texas for child sex trafficking after attempting to exploit his 4-year-old child for sex on Craigslist.

Andrew Turley, 30, was found guilty of “child sex trafficking and compelling prostitution of someone under the age of 18,” according to the Houston Chronicle.

In 2015, Turley posted an ad on Craigslist that was titled “Play with Daddie’s Little Girl.” Houston authorities exchanged emails with Turley who said he had “a girl younger than 10” who he could drug with “sleep meds” before the encounter.

Turley told the undercover officers that it would cost $1,000 for two hours with the child and said his daughter “might be too young for intercourse but everything else was OK.”

An officer met Turley and his daughter at an apartment she lived in with her mother.

“Upon the officer’s arrival, Turley checked the cash, then escorted him to a bedroom where the girl was in bed and appeared to be ‘under the influence of an unknown substance,'” the attorney’s office stated.

Assistant District Attorney Stewanna Miskell, one of the prosecutors in the case, said this “broke her heart.”

“A father is supposed to be a protector, not a predator. Jurors saw the need to keep him out of our community,” she added.

Turley will become eligible for parole in 45 years.
