Bay area woman accused of trying to sell baby to two different families

September 11th, 2009 by

RIVERVIEW, FL – A 21-year-old Riverview woman tried to turn a profit off her unborn child, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputies said. They’ve charged Tiffany Palinsky with Organized Fraud, Grand Theft, Petit Theft and Sale of a Minor Child.

According to deputies, Palinsky went to a Town `n Country adoption agency in June and offered her unborn baby for adoption. The agency, Adoption Miracles paid Palinsky approximately $1500 for expenses like housing, food and health care.

Deputies claim Palinsky went to Brandon Family Law Center, in Brandon, a week later and offered the same baby for adoption. That agency paid Palinsky $835.00. Law Center director Mary Greenwood told ABC Action News.com, “I smelled a rat because she (Palinsky) was answering questions with answers that didn’t make sense.” Greenwood called other adoption agencies and learned Palinsky allegedly made a deal with at least one other agency.

Sheriff’s deputies have not released any information about the baby. However ABC Action News.com has learned the baby was born late last month and was placed with a family.
