Treatment set for woman accused of selling baby
DOVER, Del. (AP) - August 16, 2012 (WPVI) -- A Delaware woman charged with trying to sell her baby to a Philadelphia man for $15,000 has been sentenced to a mental health treatment program after pleading guilty but mentally ill to a charge of falsifying a birth certificate.
A Superior Court judge in Wilmington sentenced Bridget Wismer on Thursday to five years in prison, with 14 days credit for time served. The judge suspended the sentence for 18 months of intensive mental health probation.
Wismer also was ordered to secure job training and to have no contact with co-defendant Jack Gavaghan.
Gavaghan, who also pleaded guilty to falsifying a birth certificate, was to be sentenced Friday.
As a condition of her sentence, Wismer also must not consume any alcohol or illegal drugs and will be subjected to curfew checks.
