A Father in Texas is accused of trying to sell his 16-year-old adopted son. He’s accused of taking a check and a vehicle in exchange for signing away his parental rights.
For a thousand dollar check and a truck, Pearland police believe Ronald Hoyt was selling his son. The transaction was captured on security cameras last Tuesday. Hoyt was arrested Friday.
Hoyt adopted Alan when he was a young boy. The relationship turned rocky, he says, as he got older. Last year he met Michael Gonzales who gave him a home. “He didn’t have anyone who cared about him and he was just a lost soul.”
He went to court to become his managing conservator and in December decided he wanted to adopt Alan. But first Hoyt wanted something. “Before I sign any adoption papers I want two years of subsidy for Alan,” said Hoyt.
