    NY - Woman accused of targeting girl, 9, with Craigslist ad, Long Island, 2009

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/CRIME/07/03/...irl/index.html
    A Long Island, New York, social worker is facing two misdemeanor charges after allegedly posting a sexually suggestive ad on Craigslist that gave interested parties the home phone number of a 9-year-old girl.
    The sexually suggestive ad allowed parties to get a number for a 9-year-old girl.





    According to prosecutors, Margery Tannenbaum posted the ad to get revenge after an argument between her daughter and the girl, who attend the same school in Hauppauge, New York.


    <snip>


    Interested parties were directed to an e-mail address where they were given the girl's name and home phone number. Callers were unaware they were trying to reach a 9-year-old.
    According to Suffolk County authorities, the mother of the girl intercepted calls before her daughter answered. She said she received 22 calls in one day, in all around 40 calls from various men who saw the ad, including some seeking an escort service. After Craigslist was issued a subpoena, authorities said they were able to track the account to Tannenbaum.


    <snip>
    "She's never been in any trouble for anything before," Scharfenberg said. "She's just really upset by the whole thing. Her biggest concern has always been that this not materially affect the victim or her child.


    She wants to make sure the way it's being handled doesn't make that worse."


    In an interview with News 12, the victim's mother said she was "horrified."
    "It's scary to think that someone would take any issue and attack your child."



    -------------------------


    First of all, a Social Worker did this? And she expresses concern over the way this might be handled - for the child? Meanwhile, this is how she chose to 'deal with' an argument between her daughter and another 9 year old?



    I'm so shocked by this woman's actions. She all but marketed out an innocent baby to men for sex.


    I don't have too many words about this one, but I hope they throw the book at this woman, and I hope she is suspended from her job as a social worker.


    That was just so ill-thought out, mean-spirited, dangerous and WRONG.

    If the child's mother hadn't have intercepted the calls, it is entirely possible that we'd be reading about this little missing 9 y/o as a case.


    What is wrong with some people?

    This is so disgusting, wth is going on with some mothers who seem to go to such drastic measures because not every child seems to love their daughter? This made me think of the case in Mo where the mother set up the fake myspace acct pretending to be the teen boy and the girl ended up killing herself.

    Boyfriends and girlfriends are not Babysitters.
    Just because you want to be with somebody does not mean they will take care of your children.

    Her conviction just got overturned - or temporarily did.

    I was thinking the same thing. So many use the Internet for good for child, yet now it isn't just pedos to worry about, but it is being used by every-day Moms as a weapon to bully kids on behalf of other kids.

    I'm truly astounded.

    this is so disgusting that this woman did this to a 9 year old and is a social worker. i too hope they throw the book at her and they fire her. forget suspending her, she needs to take more classes. and my question is WHO is the adult her? certainly not her!
    we need to encourage harder sentencing on those that are harming our children. our children are worth it!!

    stop the circus!! these children as all children deserve to be found and justice brought forth for what has happened to them!!

    I can only imagine the fear that the mother of the 9 year old girl is feeling. With the phone number posted an address could also be found by some nut. She's probably wondering if she is safe staying at her home. The mean social worker should have to pay restitution for counseling and any moving expenses plus be charged with a crime.

    The internet had made it to easy for some people to exact revenge thinking they are anonymous. Thankfully they are not. This woman is incredibly pathetic, she needs mental help. I can't imagine any mother doing this to another child.

    HMMM-conflict exists between your child and another...you
    a.) teach your child that not everyone likes everyone and as long as your child is not being bullied, ignore it.
    b.) Contact the parent of the other child and set up a play date to see if the girls can find a way to get along.
    c.) Post the address and phone number of the minor in a Craiglist ad soliciting sex...

    The social worker leaps to C???

    This world has gone crazy. The attorney should have kept their mouth shut and avoided making statements to the press, checked their client into a mental health facility and hoped for the best.

    I just read the link. What is the correct punishment for this mother? Why is the question. MT lawyer says it is blown out of control, I wholeheartedly disagree with him.

    It blows my mind when someone directs adult anger toward a child. Ridiculous and sick!

    Obviously this is never ok to do but for a friggin argument?

    This lady has severe mental issues.

    Link to another story from yesterday. This "thing" looks wacko!!

    ETA: From the article;

    At yesterday's hearing, Tannenbaum was arraigned on charges of aggravated harassment and new charges of endangering the welfare of a child.

    The perp had magazines, books & dvd's sent to the child's home, too? I can only imagine what she ordered.

    At least the Judge put an order of protection on the poor victim and her Mom.
