Man sells teen daughter for beer

Father Accused Of Selling Daughter For Beer:

I’m sure we’ve all read this one by now.

36-year-old Macelino de Jesus Martinez of Greenfield, Calif. has been arrested for selling his 14-year-old daughter. Apparently a 14-year-old girl goes for…

…$16,000, 100 cases of Corona, 50 cases of Modelo beer, several cases of meat, two cases of wine, 50 cases of Gatorade and 50 cases of soft drinks…

The ‘buyer’ was one 18-year-old Margarito de Jesus Galindo.

Police believe that Martinez reported his daughter missing after Galindo reneged on the deal.

The girl claims she went willingly.

Galindo was arrested on statutory rape charges while Martines was arrested on a charge of accepting something of value in exchange for placing a person into cohabitation, aka child selling.

Both Galindo and Martinez are illegal immigrants from Mexico.In their part of Mexico arranged marriages are quite common. Both men are facing deportation.

Look if you want to continue your 3rd world customs do it in your own 3rd world country. Here in the U.S. that’s considered basically child prostitution.

Thanks to LadyJade, Mr. A, Eliza, Kathy and Anon for the tips.

  1. please let’s not be so ignorant baout this and anlyse the article more deeply. first of mexico is not a third world country and dowry is not common in mexico. make some more research please, the family belongs to an indegenous tribe and it is a custome for them. so please don’t let your racism and ignorance get involved with your opinion.

  2. What about that was racist?? He sold his daughter. Period. In our country that is illegal, and considering that they are in THIS country then they broke the law. If they want to live like they do with their “indegenous tribes” as you put it, then they need to go on back there.

  3. that’s the point he is not selling his daughter it is just part of their costum. they don’t put their daughter’s for sale, the compensation works as a form to bring prosperity the family of the daughter. they have the complete story at msnnbc.com i know it is against the law and they must be punished, but this is a case of cultural differnces. they belong to the Trequi tribe which does not speak english neither spanish, they simply did not know it was unlawful. the father notified the police, he did not think he was going to get in trouble.

  4. Isn’t it interesting the father would call the US police when he got screwed over by the 18 year old but couldn’t check out the US laws before selling his daughter…..tribe custom or not…the bottom line is this…if you come to this country it is our rules you follow and if you don’t know them you need to learn them when you first come here! Anyone-tribe member or not should automatically realize that! These people come to America for a better life….well, if they know their life can be better they should also know the laws! No excuse for any of this!

  5. I THINK SETTING UP A MARRIAGE IS RIDICULOUS AND I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD CHOOSE THEIR OWN SPOUSE BUT BECAUSE OF IT BEING THEIR CUSTOM AND BECAUSE THE DAUGHTER WENT WILLINGLY I DONT THINK ITS REALLY THAT BIG OF A DEAL. I DO THINK THE GIRL SHOULD HAVE BEEN OLDER THOUGH. I HAVE HEARD OF WAY WORSE!
    IM SURE IF THE FATHER WAS IN MEXICO HE WOULD HAVE CALLED THE COPS AS WELL SO I DONT THINK ITS A MATTER OF WHICH LAWS TO FOLLOW OR NOT. ITS NOT LIKE THERE IS A BOOK OF LAWS THAT THEY CAN PICK UP AND READ WHENEVER YOU WANT. YOU LEARN AS YOU GO. MOST LAWS ARE COMMON SENSE BUT IF THATS THE CUSTOM IN HIS TRIBE HE PROBABL EXPECTED THE SAME HERE. PERSONALLY I AM NOT ANGRY WITH THE FATHER AND I DONT BLAME HIM FOR CONSIOUSLY DOING SOMETHING HE WAS TAUGHT WAS RIGHT FOR THE 36 YEARS OF HIS LIFE.
