US man jailed 6 years for trying to 'sell his 8-mth-old baby daughter for US$25' outside Walmart in California

LOS ANGELES (AFP) - A 39-year-old US man has been jailed for six years for allegedly trying to sell his eight-month old baby daughter for US$25 (S$32) outside a Walmart store in California, reports said on Thursday. Patrick Fousek, who was allegedly on drugs at the time, was sentenced on Wednesday after a judge refused his lawyers' appeal for probation, according to the Salinas Californian. Fousek and the baby's mother, Samantha Tomasini, were arrested in June 2010 when two women reported the couple trying to sell their daughter outside a Walmart store in Salinas, south of San Francisco. 'I'm very, very remorseful - I wish I didn't have this problem,' Fousek said in court, according to the newspaper. 'I'm asking the court to consider probation, so I can go home.'
