Mom Busted Selling 6-Year-Old for Sex After Unlikely Hero Turns Her In

The mother who sold her 6-year-old daughter to pedophile drug dealers to get money for drugs won't be doing that again any time soon. Dalina Nicholas has pleaded guilty and she's facing 15 to 30 years in a Florida prison. And it's all thanks to someone rather unexpected.

The man who rescued Nicholas' daughter from a life of horrible abuse at the hands of her own mother was a complete stranger to her. In fact, he was a man society has more or less forgotten.

He was, well, is homeless.

But when it came time to be a knight in shining armor for a little girl in desperate need of rescuing, the unidentified man was there all the same. He flagged down a cop and told him he saw the following:

Nicholas tells the victim to take off her clothes and lay on a mattress in the living room, saw the suspect give Nicholas $20, and then perform oral sex on the victim.

Chilling stuff, but as the public service announcements say, it takes someone who sees something to say something.

And thank goodness he did. This little girl has been rescued from a life where her mother was a crack addict so lost in addiction that she would literally hand her child over to dealers so they could have sex with her.

Nicholas will likely be in prison so long that she will never have even a shot in hell of regaining custody, giving this child a real chance of getting therapy, getting help, and hopefully living a normal life.

That's an incredible gift for someone to give a child, especially a child they didn't know. And I can't help thinking about the bravery it took for this man to speak out. Speaking out likely brought attention to himself, something the homeless population is known to shy away from. And speaking out to a cop in particular must have been difficult. The homeless and the police tend to have a rather fraught relationship. He didn't know what this could mean for him. Could it have gotten him in trouble? Who knows.

The point is, this man saw a child being hurt, and he didn't think of himself. He thought of her. He rescued her.

If only there were more knights like him in this world.

If you could say something to this man today, what would it be?

This article has brought tears to my eyes and made me sick to my stomach. That mother, and I use the term loosely, should never see the light of day and have her parental rights terminated IMMEDIATELY so this child can hopefully find a family that will love her and help her heal. Thank God for the man who helped her, he is a hero. I also hope they arrested the man that was raping this poor child.

Isn't it amazing that you have to have a license to drive, have to register to vote, and all other kinds of items, but anyone can have children regardless of their ability to care for them.  This is such a sad article, while having a good result, it makes a case for the most severe level of punishment for the mother.

How does a mum who cares this little about their child even keep them alive for 6 years? this child's life must have been absolutely horrific, what an awful awful thing to do. however there shouldn't be a test for whether or not u can be a parent, obviously. Think what that means, I had my daughter at 18, pregnant at 17, would there be an age limit? Would I have been forced to give up for adoption or abort my daughter if there was some sort of test? do u have to prove u can afford it so the poor are no longer allowed to reproduce? Or do u just stop drug users? Which drugs? What if as a teenager or in your 20s u get caught with a drug, does that mean u get sterilised? people who think it would be a good idea for the government to decide who is allowed to use their own organs are so dumb it terrifies me.

That man is a hero without a doubt. He is probably used to being ignored by society, but he had the courage and decency to do the right thing and save that little girl. Her mother is an absolute monster.
