Mom Sell Baby $7,000
December 6, 2011 by staff
Mom Sell Baby $7,000, In what might be South Florida’s first arrest of its kind, a mother is accused of trying to sell her infant son into a good home for $7,000. Kenia Quiala Bosque, 30, of Miami, tried to trade her 8-month-old son for cash to an acquaintance, police said.
She told the Monroe County man, whom police didn’t identify, that she was in “deep financial distress” and she thought he could provide a good home for her son, said Bob Breeden, assistant special agent in charge with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
“She knew he would be a good father to the child, and would not abuse the child,” he said.
The FDLE and the Broward County State Attorney’s Office both said they can’t remember a case like this in South Florida before.
It’s more common for a parent to sell his or her child for sex than to try to make money while finding the child a good home, said Ron Ishoy, spokesman for the State Attorney’s Office.
The acquaintance tipped police off to the deal he made with Bosque. Recorded phone calls between them gave police enough to arrest her.
“Just to plan that is a crime,” Breeden said.
The circumstances are unusual statewide, said Giselle Rodriguez, outreach coordinator with the Florida Coalition Against Human Trafficking.
“What we’ve seen is the parent will have some type of addiction, an issue where they’re trading the child for that,” she said. “Often the buyers are pedophiles who feel like they’re helping the family. We’ve never heard of a child being sold just as a child.”
Bosque, who was arrested at her home Sunday, is charged
