A French judge was fired after advertising his 12-year-old daughter on a partner exchange website.
Olivier Bailly, 55, was vice president of the courts of justice in Dijon, Burgundy, but was removed by the judicial disciplinary authority.
The father of three children was charged last year with corrupting a minor and causing a pedophile crime.
He admitted to his action at a hearing last month, but begged him to keep his job as he had been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder following a case he worked on in 2007.

The offenses for the crime carry up to 10 years in prison and Bailly was removed from the court, where he was in charge of the family law division of the Dijon courts, for “conduct that caused serious damage” to the judiciary. The Times reported.
Bailley, whose wife Sophie Véjux-Bailly is also a judge and was acquitted, said she had been acting out fantasies. He never did.
Bailly was captured after a swingers site reported that the photo of the girl, where she was wearing a bathing suit, was posted on her site. Police officers posing as men seeking sex found Bailly.
Her attorney Pauline Neveu said Bailly suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder in connection with a 2007 trial of the rapist and serial killer Pierre Bodein, when Bailly was chief prosecutor.
Bailly said he doesn’t “feel really unworthy of this profession.” No date has been announced for the trial.
