Bobbie StojicHANCOCK COUNTY, MS – A Mississippi woman was arrested after she allegedly tried selling her 4-month-old baby boy to a woman in Louisiana she met over Craigslist.

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Department say they were contacted after 23-year-old Bobbie Stojic posted an ‘In Search of’ on Craigslist for baby clothes. A woman in Louisiana contacted her and the two women formed a relationship and began texting each other.

The woman in Louisiana said that after Stojic gave her a sob story about financial difficulties and possibly being evicted from her home, she offered to help care for Stojic’s 4-month-old. Stojic had a better idea, and texted the woman: “Well, for $5,000 you can have the child. Come and get him.”

The woman was interested, but replied that if Stojic wanted to relinquish her parental rights, they would need to go through the legal adoption process. Again, Stojic had a better idea and replied that there was no need for all that red tape, and that the woman could put the baby on layaway – $600 now, and then work out the remaining balance later.

After the woman contacted police and informed them of Stojic’s proposal, Stojic was arrested and slapped with a felony charge of offering to sell a child. If she’s convicted, she’s looking at ten years behind bars. She’s currently out on bond and has denied she attempted to sell her infant. Stojic’s baby is now in DHS custody, so she kind of got what she wanted.

The odd thing is, had Stojic tried this a few years back, she wouldn’t have been charged with a crime at all. Selling your baby to someone you met on Craigslist didn’t become illegal in Mississippi until July 2009. Terry Latham, Executive Director of Hope Haven Children’s Services, said even so, people in Stojic’s position have a myriad of options.

“In a situation where you come to a financial standstill, and you can no longer take care of yourself and take care of that child, go to the hospital. That’s a place of safety where you can leave a child. Call DHS, call Hope Haven, call the youth court, call law enforcement. There are absolutely a ton of people in Hancock County, or any other county, that can work with you,” said Latham.

    Isn’t this like the third time some dumbass tired to sell their kid on a social media site? Well I guess drugs don’t buy its self.

  • Mr.CustodialArts

    “Did you try to sell your child?”

    “Nah, I was kiddin’.”

    “Oh.”

  • firstofthefallen

    $5,000 seems like a pretty high starting point. She probably would have had better luck with a little more reasonable price.

  • Leasha

    Wait, so it was perfectly legal to sell a human child on craigslist in 09? So when the “adoptive” mother takes the kid to get registered for school and they demand a birth certificate, all she had to say was, “Oh I bought this one on craigslist, I don’t have all that paperwork. I can give you an estimated date of birth, though”?! Holy fuck, gotta love ‘murica!

  • But did the baby have any skills? “You know, like nunchuk skills, bow hunting skills, computer hacking skills…”

  • Especially considering that the baby has her genes. She looks like a fish with fucked up eyebrows.

  • Andrea Pizzuto

    Lemme get some of your tots!

  • Andrea Pizzuto

    Wow, I didn’t realize that crack was so expensive these days..

  • Evan

    you’d have to show your craigslist receipt in that case

  • thequeenofsorrow

    “there is no reason for a parent to even consider putting a price tag on a child.”

    come on now we all CONSIDER it *giggle*

  • itsknotme

    e-trade?

  • itsknotme

    Hush little mocking bird,
    Don’t say a word,
    Momma goin’ sell her baby,
    Thru texting I heard.

    And, if that baby won’t,
    Bring a new car,
    Momma selling her ass,
    Down at the local bar,

    .
    .
    .

  • This made me tear up a bit. Beautiful.

  • Buffettgirl

    What Bitches??? Babies be like WORK and shit, I ain’t gots time fo’ dat!

  • LuvsHorror

    Sure she could give away the baby to a safe haven, but why do that when you could make money on the deal?

  • CT

    Three words — Target parking lot. (I learned that here on DD, BEST place to sell a kid)

  • CT

    Who puts a price on their kid? This is ridiculous. I’m GIVING mine away.

  • Taster’sChoice

    …or the emails corroborating that the deal went down before July ’09 so that no paperwork is required..

  • Taster’sChoice

    LOL! Love Love Love Napoleon Dynamite..
    For any of you who missed it – here’s the youtube. Awesome movie!

  • Evan

    true true. walmart too trashy!

  • Buffettgirl

    There are days when I just love you… that was SO like my Mom to say, in fact I think she said it the last time I took her to Target!

  • Buffettgirl

    Was that snow from the heavens, or from Columbia?

  • CT

    Ah shucks. In reality, my sons are lovely little gents who do at times act like total a-holes but for the most part are loving, cute, smart boys who love their Mom to pieces and it’s mutual. I forget sometimes that they are only five. Especially when they are telling me I don’t know what I am talking about – just like being on here – they give me live and in person down votes.

  • Evan

    hmmm good question!

  • Buffettgirl

    Another one of Mom’s perennial favs it to tell folks she would have much rather had four boys than two boys and two girls… Always right in front of either my sister or myself. I think it has to do with the way boys love their Mommy SO much! And it’s always funny when little kids tell you that you don’t know what you’re talking about. Like the little girl in the AT&T “It’s Not Complicated” commercial where she says you have to eat your raisins before they turn into grapes… yeah, that shit is TOO CUTE and hysterical because she is SO convinced she is right!

  • 18th40

    Oh come on now, they wouldn’t do that, you’re a very kind and loving person. How’s your day going ? I mean it..I care.

  • Buffettgirl

    Actually, depending on how religious and crooked you are, I guess it could be both!

  • Lena60

    BABY FOR SALE! Get your redhot baby here.

  • Lena60

    Lmao Ct.

  • Lena60

    And if the local barflies don’t buy, momma’s gonna get knock-up by some other guy,And when that second baby, barely makes two, momma’s gonna sell this other one too.

  • itsknotme

    Thanks for making me smile.

  • ShelbySP

    Who would pay for a baby? What a terrible deal.

  • Lena60

    Your welcome 🙂

  • CT

    Wait, I thought you didn’t drink because this certainly sounds to me like you are wasted. I was lost right after you said kind.

  • Lena60

    I tried to sell a few kids at target, but they kept butting the customers .:P

  • CT

    Took me a minute but I actually got it!

  • 18th40

    I have no idea what you’re talking about. I don’t drink, and I have nothing but the utmost respect for you.

  • CT

    Alright, they told you my papers were revoked, didn’t they? Damn it.

  • CT

    I’m not dying am I? Something is not right here

  • 18th40

    I certainly hope not, I would miss the sunshine you bring to this site everyday.

  • Vicki

    Since Craigslist doesn’t do financial transactions, I’m sure the parties would have used paypal to complete the sale. Duh.

  • Evan

    you are correct 100% that is true

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    If I’d have had kids, I’d probably have had to pay someone to take the ‘lil Hell-Spawn off of my hands.

  • CT

    Something is up. I don’t know what it is yet but I don’t like this one bit. This is making me very comfortable. I thought that was my cat hiding in the bushes in the dark last night. I will be more diligent now.

  • 18th40

    Well I’m glad it’s making you comfortable, your happiness is very important to me.

  • CT

    CRAP, crap, crap. Bad timing for a typo.

  • 18th40

    Oh….I would never point out a typo, it’s so shallow and unfeeling, and you are just such a great gal, it wouldn’t be nice.

  • CT

    The chupacabra got to you, didn’t he? I knew it. He got your soul first. He does this sort of shit behind my back all of the time. This is the LAST time he is going to pull this stunt.

  • 18th40

    No actually, it was this guy.

  • Lena60

    I thought you said you didn’t drink ? 😛

  • 18th40

    You didn’t really think I was going to let her down did you ?

  • Lena60

    No, of course not. 🙂

  • CT

    You are a horrible person. I just cried. I hope you are happy with yourself.

  • CT

    I despise all of you — ALL OF YOU.

  • CT

    Don’t encourage him! You know better than this! I’m gonna start screaming in here any minute now.

  • JohnQknowitall

    If you are having a problem financially and you have a child, go to Human Services and get help. It is not a permanent fix to your problem. Young Americans should not suffer for the parents’ pride. Part of our taxes are to pay for a safety net – which is set up to get us through a dark financial period until we are back on our feet.
    This woman sounds like a piece of shit and I doubt financial problems were the real issue. My guess drugs were part of the bs.

  • Lena60

    Glad you got it all out of your system….want a cookie?

  • CT

    Seriously? It’s Friday. What the heck kind of offer is that? I’m not wasting my calories on anything other than wine.

  • Lena60

    I can always saturate the cookie in wine. What kind of wine would you like? Ripple? or Thunderbird? :p

  • 18th40

    I’m still just shocked that you thought I had a soul to steal, I thought you knew me better.

  • CT

    I got greedy. I failed to see the obvious signs like your skin turning black and falling off when the sun hit you. Lesson learned.

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    Is it just me, or does this twat look just like Mila Kunis without makeup?

  • Shygurl770

    People only want babies who have great skills! *Napoleon huff sound*

  • Kim

    Yeah, except she’s got a few more pounds on her,takes about a year to lose that baby weight.

  • BrittBrittRoss

    That actually works more than one way with this story…tot as in tater, & tots, as in valuable offspring…

  • FrikkenFrak

    If it was perfectly legal, we wouldn’t be reading about it on DD.

    Craigslist…providing fodder for decades.

  • FrikkenFrak

    Sounds like you’ve been reading too many Match.com ads.

  • FrikkenFrak

    Agreed.

  • FrikkenFrak

    Figured she’d stock up?

  • FrikkenFrak

    When mine were little, I’d have cut off my right arm for a few days of total “me” time. Didn’t happen. They and I survived, lol.

    As for the “mom” in this story, 5k is a bargain compared to what parents spend on their kids (just necessities) from birth to 18. So maybe she’s…..just thrifty?

    But, I’ll go with my jaded ass attitude towards child abusers and label her, if guilty, a dirty ass, subhuman who should have her ovaries removed. Maybe she could sell them on Craigslist…..

  • FrikkenFrak

    Really? She said that? : (

    Things like this make my heart hurt. (Yeah, I’m soft).

  • FrikkenFrak

    Why out of nowhere was I watching clips from “It” on Youtube yesterday? Now I know why! Damn you! lol

  • FrikkenFrak

    No ill thoughts for anyone who decides not to have them. I NEVER wanted kids. And I’ve got several good friends who opted to not have kids and they are happy.

    For me? I hit 30….and some stupid thought started to rumble in my head. Suddenly it was “hmmm,well, maybe…..”. And BOOM! There I was.

    Work? HELL YES. A lot of work. Shit and vomit and fevers and lunch boxes and checking homework and counseling when they’re been bullied or when they have a crush….and on, and on, and on. And pain. And doubt. And regret. And “I wish I had…”. I kick myself in the ass all the time for not being the PTA parent, the Martha Stewart of single parenthood. I sure wasn’t.

    But…the love….man, the love! The love you have for a child is unlike any other. Can’t be described.

  • FrikkenFrak

    Guessing someone who’d fail every adoption application?

  • FrikkenFrak

    And she wants a baby that is a baby and not 34 years old….

  • LeaveMeBe

    WOW! THAT’S A LOW PRICE!

  • LeaveMeBe

    You lie. You love ME and you know it.

  • CT

    My partner in a clown free world.

  • 18th40

    She only pretends she does, she just wants your soul too.

  • 18th40

    Oh come on FF, I’m sure I’ve made comments that have given you more reason to damn me than this.

  • Elizabeth McCarthy

    For a human? Yeah, I guess it is, these days. But you never can tell who’s genes are swimmin’ around in the deep end of that gene pool. I’d want a pedigree for $5000.

  • Buffettgirl

    She didn’t mean to be mean, she was trying to say that the boys gave her less trouble. Girls are more emotional, at least my sister and I must have been! 😉

  • Buffettgirl

    I always wanted them, but never found myself in a position to do it and do it in a way that I would have felt comfortable and stable. Now that I’m there, I don’t want to start the process at 43! 😉

  • Jycorro

    Sometimes I hate my state.

  • hicusdicus

    Maybe she is a mermaid.

  • LeaveMeBe

    She already has it.

  • LeaveMeBe

    *hip bump*

  • Leasha

    It was perfectly legal in 2009. That’s what I was saying. Mind boggling.

  • DeweyCheatam

    I’m pretty sure it’s always been illegal to sell babies, whether thru Craigslist, adoption, or otherwise.

  • Lena60

    Could be, You can’t tell in her mugshot if she is in a tank or not 😛
