DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- A central Florida woman has been
sentenced to five years in prison for a scheme to sell her infant
grandson.

A Volusia County judge sentenced 46-year-old Patty Bigbee on
Thursday. She pleaded no contest in June to selling a child and
communications fraud.

Bigbee and her boyfriend, 42-year-old Lawrence Works, were arrested in November after accepting a $30,000 cashier's check for
then-2-month-old Aidan Fleming at a Daytona Beach parking lot.

The supposed buyer -- who was actually a daughter Bigbee had given up for adoption years earlier -- had reported the deal to authorities.

Works and the child's mother, 22-year-old Stephanie Bigbee-Davis, both pleaded no contest for their parts in the scheme in March. Works was sentenced to time-served, and Bigbee-Davis received two years.

The daughter Bigbee gave up for adoption now wants to adopt
Aidan legally.
