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.
