A WOMAN who admitted selling her unborn baby over the internet to two different couples was due to be sentenced today.
Moira Greenslade, 33, from Keighley, made £2,500 after she offered to give up her child to two couples she contacted through a surrogacy website.
She also admitted signing an agreement with a third couple after placing an advert on the website offering to give the same baby up for adoption.
Greenslade pleaded guilty to three charges of obtaining money by deception and three offences under the Adoption Act at a hearing at Bingley Magistrates' Court earlier this year.
The court heard how she made a £9,000 surrogacy agreement and received £1,500 from Scottish couple Mark and Michelle Johnson in February last year.
She then obtained a further £1,000 from Peter and Sharon Robinson-Hudson, from Wrexham, north Wales, in a similar agreement, worth £5,000.
But she cancelled both agreements shortly before the baby was born, leading the Robinson-Hudsons to make a complaint of deception.
Greenslade was arrested at the Princess Anne Hospital in Southampton shortly after she gave birth to a baby girl, who was later taken into care.
She was appearing at Leeds Crown Court for sentencing.
