A central Georgia couple has pleaded guilty to having their 14-year-old daughter engage in sex with a man so that they would not have to make monthly payments on their secondhand minivan.

Sandra Davis, 37, of Dodge County, pleaded guilty to child molestation and was sentenced to eight years in prison on Monday. Davis did not physically abuse her daughter, but she did admit to encouraging her to trade sex for the van payments, The Macon Telegraph reported.

Davis’ husband, James Davis, 39, and used-car salesman Robert Bearden, 67, both pleaded guilty to molestation. They were sentenced to 10 years in prison and 10 years probation.

The Davises and Bearden were arrested in March 2010 after authorities learned of the car-payment arrangement during the course of an unrelated investigation. According to police, the Davises had their daughter do “sexual favors” for Bearden, then manager of Shorty’s Used Cars in Eastman, so they would not have to make their monthly payments of $281 on the 1998 Dodge Caravan they had bought.

“It makes me personally sick to my stomach,” Dodge County sheriff’s Capt. Tony Winborn told the Telegraph after the arrests were made.

The judge who sentenced the defendants also barred them from having any contact with the victim for 20 years.

Oconee Circuit District Attorney Timothy Vaughn did not immediately return calls for comment from AOL News. According to the Telegraph, he said that the girl, now 16, is now in a “good home environment.”

  1. Lonnie: This is just too much!! I have worked with inmates who are perpetrators, I have heard many stories of men and women who violate minors. This story should not surprise me but what?????? The end is coming very soon. This story has really tipped the scales of child abuse however, it should not be surprising. There are so many people who are “messed up” in the mind and think nothing of compromising children. Only God can change what’s happening. Come on yall – prayer works. Rev. Sharon

  2. Lonnie: What is this world coming to, this is way out control, I mean I am not surprised but wow! I’ve hear people doing things for stupid reasons but man come on! I tell you this, I don’t want to be standing beside these parents when the Lord says to them depart from me I never knew you! Ouch! Brother Baker…

  3. This is proof that we are living in the last and evil days. I’ve heard of parents using their daughters for drugs before but for what it sounds like a second van? That daughter and her parents need prayer.
