A former New Berlin man is facing charges for allegedly trying to sell sex with a four-year-old.

KTRK-TV in Houston reports 28-year-old Andrew Turley is accused of trafficking a child and compelling prostitution. Prosecutors said Turley put a disturbing ad up on Craig’s List.

The news station reports investigators exchanged more than 60 emails with Turley and agreed to pay $1,000 for 2 hours with the girl. An assistant state’s attorney says the child appeared to be in a groggy state when officers arrived and unclothed under a blanket.

Turley’s bond has been set at a half million dollars per count. He could face life in prison if convicted. KRTK-TV said this child is safe now. They also report it doesn’t appear the mother knew what was happening.
