Woman Held Without Bond in Kansas Adoption Scam



KANSAS CITY, Kan. - A woman accused of pretending to be pregnant to scam prospective adoptive parents in Kansas and elsewhere will remain held without bond while awaiting trial. A federal magistrate judge in Kansas City, Kansas, ruled Tuesday that 34-year-old Chrystal Marie Rippey, of Marshall, Texas, is a serious flight risk. Rippey's attorney did not immediately return a phone message.
 
Rippey was indicted in February on federal charges of mail and wire fraud. Prosecutors allege Rippey contacted adoption agencies and individuals, pretending she was pregnant and seeking to give up her unborn child for adoption. The indictment says prospective parents bought her meals and gifts, believing she was willing to let them adopt her baby after birth.
