An Arizona couple accused of trying to illegally sell their baby in Utah have been found at a Salt Lake City hospital.
Hospital staff reported that Alison and Gary Stuckey were at Salt Lake Regional Medical Center about 7 p.m. Saturday, said Wes Hutchins, an attorney for a foster couple who are adopting three of the couple’s other children. Alison Stuckey is more than eight months pregnant, but as of Saturday night the child had not yet been born, he said.
Salt Lake City police served the couple with a court order to appear at a hearing in front of 3rd District Judge Terry Christiansen at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. If they do not appear, Christiansen could issue a warrant for their arrest.
On Friday, Christiansen signed a protective order giving custody of their child to the Department of Child and Family Services. It was based on information from the foster couple, who found out Alison Stuckey was again pregnant about three months ago. They offered to take the baby in addition to the other children, but Alison Stuckey told them she had found an attorney in Salt Lake City who was willing to give her $6,000 for the baby, according to court documents.
The foster couple also alleged the Stuckeys illegally sold another child in January 2007, the documents say.
