Teen dad 'sells newborn baby to raise money for iPhone and motorbike'
Published: 2016 March 09 19:19:57 (9050 Views)
A baby girl from Tong'an, in the eastern coastal province of Fujian, was sold a year ago by her teenage father online for £2,480 - so that he could reportedly buy himself an iPhone and a motorbike.

Dad, A Duan, has admitted in court that he exchanged his 18-day-old child for cash.

The biological mum, identified only as Xiao Mei, says that she "didn't know that it was illegal".

Xiao Mei was reportedly below the age of consent when the child was conceived, and A Duan did not finish high school

Spending a lot of his time in web cafes, A Duan decided to sell the baby without her mother's consent and haggled for a price over QQ, a popular social network.



The buyer allegedly said his were purchasing the child for his sister.

Xiao Mei was found and arrested, but told police. "I myself was adopted, and many people in my hometown send their kids to other people to raise them.

"I really didn't know that it was illegal."

In court, the judge took their circumstances into account, including A Duan turning himself in, and gave the father a three-year prison sentence.

Xiao Mei was given a suspended sentence of two and a half years as she is helping raise her younger brother and taking care of her disabled parents.

Although the buyer has gone to police, the baby has remained with his sister as the parents are unable to raise her.
