A resident of Yekaterinburg who sold her son was arrested for 2 months
A woman from Yekaterinburg who tried to sell her seven-year-old son for 300,000 rubles was arrested for two months. This was reported kp.ru.
The unfortunate mother will stay in custody until October 8. According to the publication, the 36-year-old woman fully admitted her guilt and claims that financial difficulties in the family prompted her to act insane. She stated that she wanted to pay off her debts in order to help her mother and disabled brother. However, her husband is well paid and, according to him, had no idea about these plans, otherwise he would certainly have dissuaded his wife.
A resident of Yekaterinburg posted an advertisement on the Internet about the sale of her son to another family at the end of July. But instead of a “new family”, volunteers opposed human trafficking and policemen came to her. They set up a meeting with the woman, ostensibly to discuss the deal. In front of volunteers and law enforcement officers, she really sold her child.
The careless mother was arrested. She was charged with trafficking in relation to a minor (Article 127.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). The sanction under the article is up to 10 years in prison.
