#CODED-ish News::18-Yr-Old Girl Arrested For Selling Newborn Baby On Facebook For Just N17,800!

7:50 AM

A Chilean teen sold her unborn baby on Facebook for just $113, police said. The 18-year-old woman, Veronica Carrera Chaparro, was arrested alongside her mother and sister who are accused of helping her with the sale.

Police claim that Chaparro found out she was two months pregnant in February 2013.
She told her then 17-year-old boyfriend and made him promise to keep the news quiet. But he broke the secret and told her family.

Chaparro's 42-year-old mother Angela Chaparro and her 24-year-old sister Daniela Perez reportedly gave her three options.
"Sell it, abort it or give it up for adoption," were her options, said police chief Miguel Ampuero.

The unborn baby was put up for sale on social networking site Facebook and attracted immediate interest from a couple in the city of Concepcion.

However, the parties could not negotiate a deal.
A family from the Santiago neighborhood of Puente Alto then got in touch and offered to pay the child's $1,870 formal registration fees.

The baby was eventually born on Nov. 4 and, the following day, the husband of the buyers allegedly paid the sum to authorities. He then handed over the much-smaller amount to the birth mother, who lived in the Maipu district of the capital, reports Cooperativa.

Chaparro, her mother and sister were all arrested and charged in connection with the sale. They appeared before a court in Santiago on Sunday.

Judge Ernesto Silva said the case was "very serious."
But it could prove complex case, as under Chilean law it is not a crime to offer the delivery of a newborn over the Internet, even if financial compensation is offered.
The buyers were also detained and will appear before a court on Monday. NYdaily!
