    KY - Three on trial in baby selling case.

    Prosecutors say that a mother in southeastern Kentucky has pleaded guilty today to trying to sell her 10-month-old baby to a Michigan woman.

    Jessica Cornett -- of Williamsburg -- has been accused of selling her 10-month-old baby to 30-year-old Kimberly Brick -- of Chase, Michigan.

    Trimble says Brick also pleaded guilty today to a charge of selling or purchasing a child.

    Cornett's boyfriend, 22-year-old Kenneth Couch, -- of Williamsburg -- also was charged in the case. He has pleaded not guilty.

    Trimble says he recommended a two-year sentence for Cornett and for Brick. He says he would recommend probation for Brick if she testified against Couch.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
