Tried to pawn off her 6-year-old son for $10 in gas money For $10 in gas money, Marcy Pappalardo was prepared to give up her 6-year-old boy.
At least according to a tow truck driver who told police Pappalardo made the proposition to him at a gas station in Melbourne, Florida.
The tow truck driver turned the offer down, then dialed 911 and followed Pappalardo for several miles until police caught up to her.
Pappalardo, 37, denied the allegations. She was charged with child neglect anyway.
She is being held in Brevard County jail on a $2,000 bond. She is also being charged with retail theft and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.
The poor kid must feel like .... too. Every kid needs to know that (at least) his mother loves him.
Sadly, the kid is probably used to being used in his mother’s schemes by now...
Quite frankly, I don’t think she meant to ‘give up her son for $10’..... I think she was renting him out....if you get my drift. I bet you that the truck driver who reported it had no clue thats probably what she meant....
I can understand that, and maybe there are truck drivers who would accept, but not the majority. She thought this one looked like a pervert?
She would have been better off letting wolves raise him.
Or the truckdriver was lying becasue she wouldn’t comply with his sexual wishes and called the police knowing that the goverment is an evil thug.
It is basiclly a he-said she-said.
Whoever calls the cops first wins.
My same thought till possession an theft comments. Sounds like Mommy is a tweeker.
According to Florida Voter Registration Records, the only Marcy Pappalardo (37 years old) is a registered Democrat.
Just thought you’d like to know.
Look it up yourself.
Please: somebody ask this woman whom she voted for last November... I think I know, but I’d love to have my suspicion proved correct.
I think I may have answered your question in my post above yours.

I think she was renting him out....
OMW, I guess you are right. Perhaps thsi has happened. Poor child. I hope the other prisoners beat her senseless.
...whom she voted for last November...
A common scam where I live is for young girls to offer guys a blow job for some tiny amount of money,$5-10, and when they get the cash they walk away. What are you going to do? Call the cops because you didn’t get head from an underage girl? Most common among Aboriginal girls. I remember one of my friends being outraged when he saw the offer being made, and refused, on a bus, “These poor Aboriginal girls, being exploited for sex by evil white dudes!”
I assume that was happening here.
I love how so many Freepers think alike. And better yet, we’re usually right.
Poor woman being prosecuted for trying to sell her child. She was trying to rent him, not sell him! She an ACORN worker, after all.
