Greenwood County: Surrogate mother for hire pleads guilty

A Hodges woman accused of obtaining more than $14,000 by offering to be a surrogate mother has pleaded guilty to several charges.

Jessica O’Donnell, 28, pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiracy and six counts of obtaining money under false pretenses, The (Greenwood) Index-Journal reported.

O’Donnell was sentenced to the six months she’s been in jail, plus five years of probation, and was ordered to repay nearly $9,000, prosecutor Jerry Peace said.

O’Donnell advertised she would be a surrogate mother if families paid her $1,000, Peace said. She was arrested in December, the newspaper said.
