A Texas man is being accused to trying to pay $10,000 to “buy” the virginity of an underage girl, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Cirino Santiago Delacruz, 32, and Adriana Aguilar, 33, have both been slapped with felony trafficking charges after negotiating the price. The two are now in custody.
The incident reportedly happened in December and police were notified when the girl told her parents last month.
Documents obtained by the Morning News say that the girl knew Aguilar, who in December invited her to ride along on some errands. She took the girl to an apartment, where she met Delacruz. At that point, Aguilar told her Delacruz had offered $10,000 for her virginity.
The girl was forced into a bedroom where Delacruz fondled her and attempted to rape her, but she fought her way out. He still paid $100 because he had touched her, the Morning News reports.
The girl told the investigators she feared both Delacruz and Aguilar. Child protective services are now involved with the case.
