A mother in Florida reportedly attempts to sell her young son to a truck driver for gas money.
Press Release Service – Wired PR News – A Florida mother reportedly made an attempt to sell her six year-old son to a truck driver in exchange for gas money. As reported by Florida Today, Marcy Pappalardo was arrested Friday after the driver reported the incident to the police.
Roy Baijnath, the truck driver, is quoted in the report as stating of the incident, “You know, I have mixed feelings. To see the kid crying like that on TV was tough. I caused that upon him, and I have a kid of my own… But had it been the other way, where would the child be?”
Pappalardo reportedly has been charged with child neglect. Her son is being cared for by his father.
