This dude truly ain’t shyte
A man convicted of trying to sell his baby outside a California Walmart store is heading to prison for six years.
Patrick Fousek and Samantha Tomasini were arrested in June 2010 after witnesses told Salinas police that they were offering their 8-month-old daughter for $25.
Prosecutors said the couple were methamphetamine users and appeared high when they were arrested.
Fousek’s lawyer argued that the incident was a misunderstanding and his client was never serious about selling the baby.
The Monterey County man was convicted in October of child endangerment and possessing drug paraphernalia. A judge Wednesday gave him the maximum sentence of six years.
Tomasini previously pleaded no contest to child endangerment. She was sentenced to four years’ probation and placement in a drug treatment program.
The child has since been adopted.
SMH… The mother got off easy, maybe too easy, but it’s good she’s cleaning up her act. This guy clearly wasn’t trying to give up his habit in exchange for the plea deal. Drugs kill folks.
That baby is lucky to be living with a family that loves her and not with these dope fiends.
