NY Man Accused of Putting Girlfriend's Baby For Sale on Craigslist
Posted August 5th, 2013 @ 2:24pm

A Staten Island man, who was upset that his girlfriend wasn't paying enough attention to him, put her two-month old daughter up for sale on Craigslist for $100. The New York Daily News reports that 22-year-old Paul Marquez has been charged with three misdemeanors: authority to place or board out children, endangering the welfare of a child, and aggravated harassment. Marquez is currently being held on $1,000 bail and is due back in court on Tuesday.

Marquez allegedly admitted that he put the post up on Craigslist to get back at his 19-year-old girlfriend, Katie Devalle. According to the Daily News, at least one person said they wanted to buy the baby! After someone flagged the Craigslist post in the "For Sale - Baby + Kid" section, Marquez put up another post.

The Administration for Children’s Services contacted the NYPD who traced the IP address back to Marquez.
