Don't Even Joke About Selling a Baby on Craigslist

Craigslistblog posted this item about an Oregon man today:

Patrick Lee Ryan, 33, faces charges of buying or selling a child, disorderly conduct and committing a computer crime. He is being held on $35,000 bail.The Craigslist ad appeared on the Web site on Monday and someone contacted police to report it.The ad was an offer to sell a baby for $1,000 and the message said the person needed the money because they were out of ‘tweak.’

The only thing is, the baby wasn't real. Police now believe the ad was a fake. But they can't just chalk it up to a dumb joke, because in Oregon it's a felony to advertise a baby for sale. Actually, that is pretty funny.-Andy Wright
