Alice Leann Todd, 45, „purchased” this way an 1992 Plymouth Laser car from Tina Marie Chavis and Vicenio Mendoza Romero. They were charged with the unlawful sale, surrender, or purchase of a minor, Brad Saintsing from Thomasville Police Department said. The truth was discovered when Tina Marie Chavis couldn’t produce any documentation as mother of the child when the 2-year-old child was brought to a hospital at Wake Forest Baptist Health’s High Point Medical Center suffering from an allergic reaction. Child protective services and police were announced.
When questioned, Chavis originally claimed to be the child’s biological mother, later saying she was the child’s adoptive mother. The three people are all being held on US$50,000 bonds at the Davidson County Jail. The child, 2-year-old, is in the care of a family member. Due to the gravity of the situation, more charges could be brought in the case. Even if a such case of trading child is not very common, chidren are subject of many infractions made by adults in the actual world. However, this is more frequent in poor countries.
