See What Happens When You Try to Sell Your Kid For $15K

Check out this surprising piece from our friends at Business Insider: 

A Delaware woman who allegedly tried to sell her newborn son to a friend in order to pay for a Disney vacation has pled guilty to the charges, NBC Philadelphia reports.

Bridget Wismer, 34, was arrested in October along with John Gavaghan, 54, a man who police say agreed to buy her month-old son for $15,000.

Investigators say Wismer never wanted the child and planned to use the cash to take her other children on a trip to Disney World.

Wismer's grandmother tipped off investigators to where the pair would meet to hash out the final paperwork.

They were charged with dealing in children, falsifying a birth certificate (a felony) and conspiracy in the second degree. At a hearing Thursday, they pled guilty to just one count of falsifying a birth certificate.
