New Details Emerge in Baby-Selling Scam
Three women who have pleaded guilty to conspiracy in what authorities said was a years-long illegal baby-selling scheme also defrauded a state health care program and illegally distributed fertility drugs to aid the scam, federal prosecutors now say. Those are some of the latest allegations to surface in the case against prominent Poway fertility lawyer Theresa M. Erickson and two other women. The trio pleaded guilty to wire fraud and conspiracy in July and August and are awaiting sentencing in a case that captured national attention and led to scrutiny of the legal process governing surrogacy arrangements in California.
