Three people from North Carolina are facing criminal charges after a mom allegedly gave her baby to a couple last year in exchange for a 1992 Plymouth.

In July 2019, a 2-year-old child was brought to the hospital by 47-year-old Tina Chavis, and the youngster reportedly had bruises on her body. The hospital staff reported the marks on the girl to the police, in addition to child protective services, and an investigation was opened.

When the authorities talked to Chavis, she at first allegedly said she was the girl’s mother and afterward explained that she and her husband, 53-year-old Vicenio Mendoza Romero, had adopted the child.

A New York woman is facing criminal charges for allegations that she enrolled in and attended a high school, gaining access by telling the administration she was a homeless teenager.

In mid-December, an enrollee showed up at the Cairo-Durham School District office and disclosed that she was a homeless 15-year-old who was not currently attending school. She allegedly stated that her name was Riley Madison.

The student was immediately assigned a school and transportation services within the district based on the McKinney-Vento Act. This federally recognized assistance act ensures that children without stable living conditions are granted access to public education even if they don’t have the typical documentation required for registration.
