Sold a relative for $12,000 dollars.

Obdulio Aparicio Found Guilty in Human Trafficking Case

Obdulio Aparicio has been declared guilty by authorities for his despicable actions. Without any remorse, Aparicio ‘sold’ a relative for $12,000 to a neighbor so that the neighbor could abuse her. The judge of the Superior Court of Monterey County, Andrew Liu, found Aparicio guilty of human trafficking of a minor for commercial sex purposes.

In addition to the initial charge, Aparicio also faced charges of child abuse and domestic violence. He was sentenced to five years in a state correctional facility for his heinous crime. The sub-sheriff of Monterey County, Keith Boyd, expressed shock and disbelief at the situation, calling it tragic and despicable.

The case, which took place in Castroville, California in April 2023, shed light on the lack of value some people have towards the dignity of others. Aparicio even offered the victim to his acquaintances for higher amounts before ultimately selling her to Javier Saavedra for the agreed price.

Authorities have not disclosed the identity of the victim for safety reasons, but they have emphasized the importance of speaking up when witnessing such situations in the community.
