SALT LAKE CITY -- A preliminary hearing is scheduled for a Salt Lake City woman charged with offering her 13-year-old daughter's virginity to a man for $10,000.

The 33-year-old woman was charged in May with two first-degree felony counts of aggravated sex abuse of a child and two second-degree felonies. She is set to appear in court Tuesday.

If convicted, she faces life in prison for each first-degree felony.

Prosecutors say the woman discussed selling her daughter's virginity to an adult male in text messages which were seen by the woman's boyfriend, who called police.

Authorities say the girl initially agreed to the sex-for-money arrangement, but later changed her mind.

The Associated Press isn't naming the woman to avoid identifying the daughter.
