    Dad Sells Girl, Calls Cops to Complain He Wasn't Paid

    Dad Sells Girl, Calls Cops to Complain He Wasn't Paid




    A 36-year-old California man was arrested and booked in the Monterey County jail after allegedly selling his daughter for marriage and then calling police to complain that her buyer had not paid off his debt.

    Greenfield, Calif., police said Marcelino de Jesus Martinez, 36, tried to arrange for his 14-year-old daughter to marry Margarito de Jesus Galindo, 18, for $16,000 and 100 cases of beer, along with several cases of meat and other items.

    After the girl moved in with Galindo, Martinez called police to complain that he hadn't been paid. Police said he asked for their help getting his daughter back.

    Martinez's daughter did return home, but he was arrested and booked on suspicion of bartering her –– "receiving money for causing person to cohabitate."


    Galindo, the intended buyer/groom, was booked on suspicion of statutory rape, police said.

    Police said the practice of arranged marriage in some cultures is not relevent in the case, and even if it were, California law doesn't go for it when one or both parties have been coerced.

    Where is California's famous tolerance of Cultural Diversity? - I would have thought they'd embrace this.

    Unbelievable! What P.O.S they must be, hope they get what is coming to them, also hope the girl gets far away from them and their likes.

    Wow. She was only worth $16,000? Of course, we could probably bump that to $32,000 counting the beer and meat. I would have thought a 14 year old girl could go for at least $100,000.

    Seriously, though, what an asshat. Since hopefully both men will be going to jail, hopefully the State steps in and does what's best for the girl.

    These are hard economic times. Since we've already established a base of what someone would be willing to agree to pay, the state should auction her off, starting at $50,000. They could start doing this with more people and really make California prosper!

    That's only if they are blonde haired and blue eyes. Mexican 14 year-olds average about $25k, so the guy got a bargain.

    I'm sure it would cost us more than 16k and the beer.

    I wonder what the equivalent number of goats are for 100 cases of beer? I mean, at least when we were selling women for livestock it was a renewable resource.

    Good grief!
