Suspect Claims 'Money Addiction' in Prostitution Sting

The 29-year-old woman was arrested in a prostitution sting, after allegedly placing an ad in Backpage.com.

Police say that a 29-year-old woman was working inside her home as a prostitute while her boyfriend and baby waited outside for her, according to media reports.

Danielle Barron was arrested Saturday by the Bradenton Police Department, after she allegedly placed an ad in Backpage.com and then met an undercover agent at her house, according to WTSP.com.

Barron is accused of demanding and accepting $200 from the undercover detective.

Police say that Barron admitted to working as a prostitute for the past two years, but said she engaged in the illegal activity because she suffers from a money addiction.

The woman's baby was taken into protective care by child welfare officials, according to WTSP.com.

Well who the heck isn't a money addict? Why is it that people who like money and are in other work are called "industrious" or "hard-working" but an escort has to feel socially pressured to call herself a "money addict"???

Becuz u r selling ur ass 4 money. there r more dignified ways to make money and make ur kids proud. noone wants to grow up to be a whore. what is the kid gonna think when he grows up? and not only is selling ur ass for some money enough of a blow to ur self worth. but the boyfriend condoned and enabled it. wow i hope this guy isnt the kids father. what kind of example are these peoplr giving thier child? its ok for mommies to whore? lol i hope this guy isnt the father or in the kids life. if he was even woried about the kid in the first place, isnt losing ur kid a risk? did u not think of this? looks like hes just around to use her. i hope hes not in the kids life anymore. especially if its a girl. if ur sn addict then drugs r the driving force
