Okla. Woman Sentenced To 5 Years In Adoption Scam

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A Tecumseh woman charged in an adoption scam has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors and is to serve five years in prison.

The Tulsa World reports that 32-year-old Angela Michelle Wilkerson pleaded guilty last week in Oklahoma County District Court to trafficking in children.

Wilkerson admitted to taking money from families in several states last December and January, promising she would give up her child to them for adoption.

Wilkerson agreed to pay $55,892 in restitution to her victims and will be on probation for 10 years after serving her prison time.

Authorities didn't disclose what happened to Wilkerson's child.
