Mother Arrested for Trying to Sell Her 4-Month-Old Son
A Mississippi woman is in deep trouble for trying to sell her baby over the Internet.
Bobbie Jo Stojic, 23, is accused of offering to sell her 4-month-old son for $5,000 to a woman she met online.
Stojic was reportedly looking on Craigslist for baby clothing when she started communicating with another woman. The two began a loose friendship that evolved to the point that Stojic became comfortable enough to share that she thought she might be evicted from her home.
The two started discussing adoption and while the woman encouraged Stojic to go through legal measures, she instead sent a text offering to sell the baby to the woman for $5,000, with $600 paid in advance.
The woman contacted authorities, who arrested Stojic and took the baby into custody.
Stojic is looking at one felony charge of offering to sell a child and could face up to a decade in jail, as well as a $20,000 fine.
