  1. #1 Dad Sells Daughter for Beer, Meat. Not Florida! 
    Dad Sells Girl, Calls Cops to Complain He Wasn't Paid

    Updated 2:13 PM PST, Mon, Jan 12, 2009

    One hundred cases of beer was only part of what a California man wanted in exchange for his daughter.

    A 36-year-old California man was arrested and booked in the Monterey County jail after allegedly selling his daughter for marriage and then calling police to complain that her buyer had not paid off his debt.

    Greenfield, Calif., police said Marcelino de Jesus Martinez, 36, tried to arrange for his 14-year-old daughter to marry Margarito de Jesus Galindo, 18, for $16,000 and 100 cases of beer, along with several cases of meat and other items.

    After the girl moved in with Galindo, Martinez called police to complain that he hadn't been paid. Police said he asked for their help getting his daughter back.

    Martinez's daughter did return home, but he was arrested and booked on suspicion of bartering her –– "receiving money for causing person to cohabitate."

    Galindo, the intended buyer/groom, was booked on suspicion of statutory rape, police said.

    Police said the practice of arranged marriage in some cultures is not relevent in the case, and even if it were, California law doesn't go for it when one or both parties have been coerced.
    It wasn't even Bacon-In-A-Can. :mad:

    In India, $16,000 and 100 cases of beer is a dowry.

    that's what I thought reading this. But then with a dowery you get the goods before you send the daughter.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    In India, you send the goods and your daughter to her new husband. That's why India is big on aborting females.

    He should've just pled Muslim. I'm sure this sort of transgression would have been forgiven.

    He's apparently Mexican, so he'll get off with a warning, and a bunch of free departing gifts.
