As reported by the AP, Marcelino de Jesus Martinez, of Greenfield, California recently pleaded no contest to charges of child endangerment. Back in February, he pleaded not guilty to charges of procuring a child for lewd acts, and aiding and abetting statutory rape. If convicted on those charges, he could face up to 10 years in prison. Martinez sold his own 14-year-old daughter to the family of Margarito de Jesus Galindo for $16,000, beer and some meat.
