Convicts Don't Like People Who Try To Sell Babies At Walmart

It looks like the man who attempted to sell his baby daughter outside a California Walmart for $25 last week hasn’t exactly found a forgiving audience behind bars.

The 38-year-old, who was arrested along with the infant’s mother on Thursday, was attacked by some fellow inmates at the Monterey County Jail. He was left with a bruised and battered face along with some cracked ribs.

To avoid future confrontations, the father of the year is now being held in a cell separate from the rest of the population.

The baby’s mom — an equally charming individual — is also being held in a segregated cell. However, prison officials claim this placement is due to lack of space in the general population cells.

At least they know they’re being treated just like Bernie Madoff.
