Houston Police Officers were horrified after doing undercover work, which was spawned after they discovered an ad on Craigslist that read “Daddy’s Little Girl.”
According to reports, officers, who exchanged some 69 emails with 28-year-old Andrew Turley through November 12, discovered that Turley had been selling his daughter our for sex for the price of $1,000 for two hours. As if that weren’t depraved enough, Turley’s daughter is only four-years-old!
Before I go further, as a father of ten children, six of which are girls, I cannot put into the words the anguish and anger I feel at communicating this story to you, but you’ll soon get that.

Undercover officers with the Houston Police Department noticed an ad on Craigslist offering “daddy’s little girl” in exchange for money.
They made contact with the person promoting the ad and exchanged more than 60 emails up until Nov. 12.
Prosecutors say Turley allegedly offered two hours with the girl in exchange for $1,000, and a meeting was arranged.
When undercover officers arrived to the meeting location, they found the girl naked underneath a blanket. She was in a groggy state and appeared to be under the influence, according to police.
Turley was immediately placed under arrest and his bond was set at $500,000.
Ann Johnson, prosecutor for Harris County said, “These are cases Harris County takes very seriously. Obviously we think this is a very important matter and why the case is set so high and why the bond is set so high on this defendant.”
She also told the judge, “Lying in the small bed was a 4-year-old girl, identified as a juvenile” who “appeared to be groggy and under the influence of an unknown substance and in and out of sleep.”
That isn’t all, Turley also has a toddler son, according to his Facebook page!
Turley faces between 5 and 99 years, or life (as if that matters) in prison for charges of trafficking a child and compelling prostitution of a minor, but what he has done would have been dealt with in a much shorter amount of time by our forefathers, according to the Bible.
Seriously, 5 to life for this man? That is way to easy! And it’s unjust for those who will feed, clothe and house this man for the rest of his life… or five years! In which case, he will be freed to go and engage in more of this behavior. Who knows, maybe next time it will be his toddler son!
Jesus was clear:
But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. –Matthew 8:6
Harris County should not be seeking 5 to life. They should be seeking real justice upon Mr. Turley. That is their job (Rom. 13:1-5). As for Christians, we should demand they bring justice upon him, but even more, as our forefathers would do, we should also pray that God would bring him to repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus before his punishment is carried out.
