South African Mother Caught Trying to Sell Baby For Bargain Price

On November 20, a South African mother pleaded guilty to having attempted to sell her baby on the Internet for 5,000 rand ($346).

The 20-year-old woman said, "I admit that my actions were wrongful, unlawful and intentional. I have no defense."

The police received a tip in October, from a member of the public, that the baby was being sold on the website Gumtree. That is when the mother was arrested.

She was then freed on bail and placed under house arrest. Sentencing will be set on Feb. 29.
