EASTMAN, Ga. (AP) - Authorities in central Georgia say a mother and father offered sex with their 14-year-old daughter in lieu of making payments on their minivan.
Dodge County sheriff's Capt. Tony Winborn says the parents were arrested Monday and are in jail awaiting a bond hearing. They face child molestation and pandering charges.
The Associated Press does not name victims of alleged sexual abuse and is not identifying the parents to avoid identifying their daughter.
Winborn says 66-year-old Robert Wayne Bearden, who managed a used car dealership, was arrested on charges of child molestation and possession of a firearm by a felon.
Winborn says the couple made their daughter perform sex acts on Bearden instead of making minivan payments.
Winborn didn't know if any of the three has a lawyer.
