Kentucky Couple, Charles Hope Jr. and Amber Revlett Accused of Selling Kid for Cash


Once arrested the Kentucky couple, Charles Hope Jr and Amber Revlett, accused of selling their kid for cash claim it was a joke.

OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) — A couple are charged with trying to sell a 15-month-old girl for $3,000 and a sport-utility vehicle.

Charles G. Hope Jr., 32, and Amber M. Revlett, 26, both of Owensboro, planned to use the money to pay off his fines for previous criminal charges, said Daviess County Sheriff’s Lt. Bill Thompson. They were arrested Friday.

Thompson said it started out Wednesday as a joke between the couple and two women, but it became apparent that Hope and Revlett weren’t kidding.

Hardly seems like a joking matter, nor the truth.

“They said something to (Revlett) about giving us $500 for temporary custody to take her to New Mexico and I said, ‘Well, give me $3,000 and your truck,’” Hope said. “The next thing I know, I’m sitting here accused of trying to sell my kid … . I know they don’t think I’m serious, they just want her.”

      Ohhhh yeah…. we know.

      It was all just a misunderstanding, unless they would
      have come up with the cash and a clear title.

      What the ?!?!?!?!

      Reminds me of the boy who sold his
      inheritance, which included all of
      Israel, for a cup of soup…
