Mother Arrested For Trying To Sell Her Children On Facebook

Last updated on Sunday, April 7, 2013

(OKLAHOMA) - A 22-year-old Oklahoma mom has been arrested for allegedly contacting a woman in Arkansas and trying to sell her two children to her on Facebook.

Misty Van Horn, who has a 2-year-old and a 10-month-old, reportedly set the going price for the toddler at $1,000 or both of them for $4,000. She's accused of soliciting the illegal sale of her two children to raise the money to bail her boyfriend out of jail.

The woman who claims she was propositioned informed the state's Department of Human Services, who then contacted police.

Van Horn is being held on a $40,000 bond.
