The San Antonio couple alleged to have tried to broker the sale of a woman's 5-year-old and 10-month old were charged Wednesday in a five-count federal indictment.
Block faces charges of aiding and abetting the sale of children and distribution of child pornography.
The two children at the center of the alleged scheme have been placed in custody overseen by Child Protective Services.
Part of the deal for the sale of the children included an apartment, cash, a used car and child care for the 10-month-old.
He said that Richards was eager for the 5-year-old to have sex with older men, since she would “enjoy it.”
Block's wife filed for divorce in the days after the arrest and sought a protective order on behalf of their own 14-month-old child.
