Question Mom arrested for trying to sell son post #1  quote:



CHARLESTON, W.Va. (July 9) - A mother has been charged with trying to sell her toddler son for $500 so she could buy a stash of the addictive painkiller OxyContin.

Brianna Marie Burns, 23, could get up to five years in prison if convicted.

Burns' grandmother contacted authorities after Burns allegedly offered to sell her the 2-year-old child. An undercover officer wired the grandmother and provided her with $500 for the exchange, according to police documents.

Burns was arrested Monday after receiving the money and signing custody of the child over to her grandmother. She was being held on $102,500 bond.

Child Protective Services has placed the child with another family member.

OxyContin is a prescription painkiller often given to cancer patients. If chewed, snorted or injected, it produces a quick and potentially lethal high. The drug has been linked to more than 100 deaths.

The sale of a child was a misdemeanor in West Virginia until 1994, one year after a Charleston woman was convicted of trying to sell her 1-month-old baby to undercover officers for $1,400 so she could buy a mobile home. That led the state to change the law, making the crime a felony.

This is a case where this woman needs to go into rehab and counseling not prison.

The system just doesn't work. There's no justice.
Don't put people like her in jail. It's worse.
Give them some serious treatment.
Get them sober, and give them a reason to learn to
live clean, and to be happy!

This seems a bit odd, the reactions from people on the forum, she is a drug addict so she doesn't deservve to go to jail for her crime? She tried to sell her child - that is pretty bad.

If she had been drunk and done it would you all still say "aww, poor baby, have some counselling", of course not, you would label her an alcoholic who should not be in custody of her children. If she had killed her child to get more drugs, you also would not be so lenient.

She commited a very serious crime and should serve serious time for it. Yes, she can get help and counsellling, but from prison where she belongs.
