Man Accused of Trying to Sell Baby on Craigslist for $100

Posted: Updated:

A man from Staten Island, New York is accused of trying to sell his girlfriend's baby on Craigslist.

Police say 23-year-old Paul Marquez posted an ad on the website twice late last month, offering a baby for sale for $100.

On Tuesday, Marquez will be in court facing charges of "authority to place or board out children," harassment and endangering the welfare of a child.

People who know Marquez say they are stunned by the allegations, especially since he has his own two-year-old daughter.
