Dallas Mom Says She WASN'T Trying To Sell Her Baby On Craigslist! [Jailhouse Interview]
Published on June 26, 2012
A Dallas woman accused of trying to sell her baby for $4000 through a classified ad said in a jailhouse interview Monday that she was trying to find an adoptive family for her son. Brittany Hill, 26, was arrested Friday on suspicion of child abandonment after apartment managers found the 4-month-old baby alone in her apartment. A woman had earlier called 911 about the classified ad offering the baby for sale. She told police that she was going to buy the child but got cold feet. But Hill said Monday that she was not trying to sell her son. "I know that's illegal," she said. "I'm not stupid -- that's called, like, black-market-something. I've read up about it; I know." Hill said she posted the ad but just wanted to cover the cost of hiring an attorney to handle the adoption process. "Look deeper into it instead of just being like, 'OK, that's what it is. She's trying to sell her child -- screw that,' you know. It's not like that," she said.
