CONROE, Texas (KDKA) — A woman will spend decades in prison for the attempted sex trafficking of her 2-year-old child.
On Thursday, 25-year-old Sarah Peters pleaded guilty to the felony offenses of sexual performance of a child, attempted human trafficking and promotion of prostitution of a child.
According to the Montogomery County District Attorney’s office in Texas, detectives were conducting an investigation into child exploitation in February of this year.
