Chinese man who sold his baby online when he was 19 years old has been handed a 3 year jail term.
Their baby daughter was 18 days old when she was sold, after her parents sought out buyers on social media.
'A Duan' (not his real name) from Tong'an, Fujian province, south eastern China wanted to buy an iPhone and a motorbike with the £2,500 he sold his baby for.
According to the People's Daily Online, he met his buyer through the social media network QQ, selling the baby for 23,000 Yuan (roughly £2,500).
The mother 'Xiao Mei' (also not her real name) reportedly worked many part-time jobs while the father spent his time in internet cafes.
Both parents were 19 when they conceived the baby and went through with the unwanted pregnancy.
They were finding their young daughter a financial burden, as they were short on money, and so A Duan was keen to sell her in order to purchase material goods.
The unnamed buyer bought the baby for his sister, who still has the child in her possession while police determine the best course of action.
He turned himself in to the police after purchasing the infant.
Xiao Mei fled from Tong'an, with the intention of starting a new life.
She was tracked down and caught by police investigating the illegal sale.
Xiao Mei reportedly told police: "I myself was adopted, and many people in my hometown send their kids to other people to raise them. I really didn't know that it was illegal."
According to the Epoch Times, she was handed a two-and-a-half year suspended sentence, and A Duan was given three years in jail.
The Chinese media has estimated as many as 200,000 boys and girls are kidnapped in China every year and sold openly online.

I never knew you can buy and trade imoutos!
*Looks at Huamouto









But seriously.At least the guy they sold her too seems like a decent guy and not a child molester or something. In the article, he turned himself in.

Though really? China, really?

"I really didn't know that it was illegal" How in hell would you not even know? I really hope that's not one the actual reasons they did this

I can see putting your child up for adoption, but really? How is a smart phone more necessary than your own child?

atleast she wasn't sold on the black market...
and this isn't that bad of what people do, also some people could see as making children if used this way as a gold mine and nothing else (don't care if its living or not)
