Jessica Beers Jail Intake Report
Seminole, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Jessica Marie Beers aka Jessica Mickles, a 28-year-old Florida woman has been jailed after she allegedly attempted to sell her five-year-old son for $2,000.
According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, an investigation was launched after detectives received a report from a couple who told them that Beers attempted to sell them her son for the bargain price of $2,000.
Investigators say they couple met Beers at a local church and began assisting her financially when she told them she was having trouble making ends meet. It was during that time the couple also began to notice that Beers likely had a problem with prescription drugs.
Beer then allegedly began asking the couple to watch her son on an increasing basis until ultimately she offered to sell them her son for $2,000.
When the couple refused to take her up on the offer, Beers reportedly dropped her price to $600.
The couple relayed the information to detectives who interviewed Beers before taking her into custody. Beers, according to the arrest report, would not explain why she offered to sell her son to the couple, although the couple speculated that it was to support her prescription drug habit.
She was booked into the Pinellas County Jail on a charge of illegal adoption (sale of parental rights). She was also charged with grand theft.
The boy has been placed in protective custody.
