Hearing for Delaware woman charged with selling child

Prosecutors and defense attorneys have agreed on new pretrial conditions for a Delaware woman charged with trying to sell her baby to a Philadelphia man for $15,000.

Attorneys presented the agreement to a judge Friday during a hearing at which prosecutors had planned to argue for higher bail and other restrictions for 33-year-old Bridget Wismer.

Defense attorneys told the judge that Wismer was waiving her right to a preliminary hearing that had been scheduled for Oct. 17 in return for prosecutors agreeing to turn over all police records and other evidence in their possession.

Wismer avoided a higher bail but was ordered to have no contact with the baby or her co-defendant. She also must wear an electronic monitoring bracelet and undergo mental health and substance abuse evaluations.
