FEASTERVILLE, Pa. (AP) – A Pennsylvania couple is accused of child endangerment after police say they gave away their 14-year-old daughter to a man who helped them financially.

The friend is charged with sexually assaulting the teen, who had two children with him.

Officials acting on a tip Thursday found 51-year-old Lee Kaplan at his Feasterville home, along with 12 girls ranging in age from six months to 18 years old.

Kaplan is charged with aggravated indecent assault. The girl’s father, Daniel Stoltzfus, is charged with conspiracy of statutory sexual assault and children endangerment. Her mother Savilla Stoltzfus is charged endangering the welfare of a child.

They’re each being held on $1 million bail. Lawyers weren’t listed in court documents.

The girl, now 18, told police she and Kaplan have a 3-year-old and a six-month-old.

The Stoltzfuses told police the other nine children in the house were theirs.
