Sex Crime: Mother offered her child for sex on the internet
The lows that people will dip to never cease to amaze me, as we see another reason to keep our children off the internet. This mom decided it would be a good idea to make a few extra dollars by prostituting her four year old child on the net for $500 a session. There aren't prisons dirty enough, raunchy enough, or just downright bad enough on the planet to house people like this.
The Martinez Police Department reports that a 22-year-old resident was arrested Tuesday for allegedly offering her four-year-old child for sex.
Police received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding a posting on Craigslist that was soliciting for prostitution.
Authorities contacted Shannon Nicole Woods via the computer and learned that she had a four-year-old child and was also pregnant.
During these electronic conversations, an inquiry for sex and one regarding the child were made, police report.
Woods allegedly offered the child for sex for $500, according to police.
Authorities then served a search warrant at a residence in the 200 block of Thistle Circle and placed her into custody.
Woods was booked into the Contra Costa County Main Detention Facility and charged with offering a minor under 16 for lewd and lascivious acts. She is being held on a $50,000 warrant.
