MIAMI (CBS4)- The Opa-Locka woman who prosecutors said tried to sell her baby was arrested again, this time in court.
Kenia Bosque was at a plea hearing Friday morning when she was arrested on an unrelated theft charge. Last month, she along with two other men were arrested in Monroe County after they allegedly tried to steal copper wire from an old shrimp farm on Summerland Key. The trio was charged with burglary and theft.
Bosque, 30, was arraigned on an adoption violation charge and released from jail on $25,000 bond. Bosque allegedly tried to sell her son to a man in Monroe County for $7,000. The court hearing, which was scheduled December 27, 2011 in which she was supposed to enter a plea, was re-scheduled until Friday after the state asked for a continuance.
Bosque was out on bond before Friday’s hearing.
The boy is in the temporary custody of Bosque’s husband, Osmani Pellegrin, who is not the biological father but has cared for and been part of the child’s life since birth. Pellegrin is the biological father of a 6-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son he shares with Bosque. He and his current girlfriend Mily Vasquez also have a baby girl.
Bosque was arrested in the beginning of December after the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office received a tip from a confidential informant that Bosque had arranged a meeting with a man to sell her child.
Working with sheriff’s office, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement arranged for an undercover agent to take part in the meeting. Bosque, however, failed to show at the arranged time and place.
Fearing for the child’s safety, sheriff’s deputies and FDLE agents went to Bosque’s home and had enough evidence to make an arrest.
On December 27, 2011, Miami-Dade circuit Judge Michael Hanzman ruled that each visit by Bosque with her children must be supervised and can last no longer than two hours. Therapeutic visits will begin in the next two weeks.
Inside during a 20 minute hearing, she didn’t say much either. In the hearing, her attorney argued for the right to see the child she allegedly tried to sell, but Judge Michael Hanzman appeared concerned.
The judge granted the request, although he ordered someone watch over the visits. “Three times a week for two hours at a time, supervised by the agency.” Hanzman said.
