Mom Arrested for Craigslist Adoption

6 Jun



Three year old child placed for adoption on craigslist due to mother who could no longer care for him.  

“Hi, I’m trying to adopt out my three year old son. I’m not in a good place in my life and don’t feel like I can care for him properly, but I don’t know where to start. If you or know anyone who is interested in caring for him please let me know. I’m a single mom and can’t do this. Thanks, Desperate.”ImageCraigslist has grown to an all new level.  A 29 year old mother attempted to put her three year old child up for adoption through a craigslist ad. 

 In no other state but Texas, a woman has been arrested and charged with “unlawfully intentionally and knowingly advertised in the public media, namely Craigslist, her son, Conner Danger Redus, for adoption.” for placing an ad on the craigslist website offering her son up for adoption.  The mother was desperate, as indicated by her signature on the ad.  However, does desperation make it right?  

For those that wonder how they found her… the answer is simple… Subpoena the email address used from Craigslist.  After executing a warrant, it was determined that a yahoo email address belonging to the mother was utilized to place the ad.  The Defendant even replied to a few messages about adoption of the minor child.   

THE CHARGE:  Misdemeanor offense of Advertising for the Placement of a Child.

THE DEFENSE:  She did it, but she never INTENDED to ACTUALLY give up her son.  Even further mom is alleging that she is PREGNANT again and therefore not able to take her medication to combat her anxiety. 

THEORY OF THE CASE FOR THE DEFENSE: A depressed pregnant mom is off her meds.
