The 30-year-old father-of-one, Andrew Turley, was sentenced to decades in prison but his community feels that he deserved a harsher sentence.

Turley, who lives in Wisconsin, was arrested after an undercover officer responded to an advertisement on Craigslist. The father had been selling his then 4-year-old daughter for sex.

As reported by People, Turley was handed a 60-year sentence by the Harris County District Attorney's office on March 23, 2018.

He was charged with the 'trafficking of a child and compelling prostitution of someone under the age of 18.' Turley was arrested in 2015.

The Houston officer responded to an advertisement titled 'Play with Daddie's [sic] Little Girl,' and sent more than 70 email messages to Turley during the negotiation period.

Turley charged the officer $1,000 for a 2-hour session. In the ad, the girl was described as 'younger than 10.' It later came to light that she was only four years old.

He also assured the officer that the child would be given sleeping medication. The officer confirmed that the girl was 'in a drowsy state' when he arrived at Turley's apartment.

He found her under a blanket on the bed. She was naked. Turley's daughter lives with her mother, and the father arranged for the girl to be at his house for the officer's 'appointment.'

As per the statement released by authorities on March 23, 2018, the mother was unaware of Turley's plan to sell their daughter for sex.

Turley was sentenced to 30 years for child trafficking, and 30 years for compelling prostitution of a minor. He will serve the two charges consecutively.

Attorney Stewanna Miskell said this case broke her heart because "a father is supposed to be a protector and not a predator." She feels that he needs to be kept out of the community.
