Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 18, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tmiday, 18, 1975 Alberta couple buys baby ORANGEVILLE, Out. (CP) Two couples who arranged for the sale of a baby on Feb. pleaded guilty Monday to charges under the Child Welfare Act. Michael and Beverly Ann Leishman, both 20, of this area 40 miles northwest of Toronto, and Donald and Marlene Smith, both of Alber- ta, pleaded guilty to the charge of selling a baby. Further charges of con- spiracy to commit fraud and falsifying a birth certificate were withdrawn The four will be sentenced March 2. They face a max- imum sentence of three years in jail or a maximum fine of each. But Crown At- torney Peter Parkinson has asked the court only to fine the couples. Mr. Parkinson told the court that the Smiths met with Mr. Leishman and Beverly Ann Atherly in Jan. 1973 at a nearby ski resort to negotiate a deal for the baby. At the time, the Leishmans were not married and Bever- ly Ann was pregnant. Court was told that the two couples decided the baby would be born under the name of Marlene Smith. When born, it was named Trina Elana Smith. Mr.Parkinson said the Leishmans turned over the baby for cash and an agreement for monthly payments until a total of 000 had been paid. On July a letter was sent to the Smiths by the Leishmans, passing all rights of ownership of the baby to the Smiths. Defence counsel Bill Stutz, representing the Smiths who. did not appear in court, asked the court to waive conviction because the Smiths made for- mal application to adopt the baby in Alberta. Mr. Stutz told the court the Smiths resorted to the unusual step of buying a baby because they were desperate to have children. The court was told also that Mrs. Smith was unable to have children because of medical reasons and that the couple had an earlier applica- tion to adopt turned down by the Ontario Aid Society. The child now is living with the Smiths. Montreal hostages released By VICTOR DABBY MONTREAL (CP) "He's done it! They're coming said a nervous policeman still holding his revolver as radio reporter Claude Poirier left a north-end gas station Monday with two gunmen and a hos- tage. The gunmen, holding a re- volver and rifle on the reporter and hostage, cautiously left the gas station where they had been holed up with five hostages for about an hour at noon following an attempted bank robbery. About 125 heavily-armed po- licemen cleared the way as the gunmen stepped into Mr. Poirier's car with the hostage and drove to downtown police headquarters accompanied by police cruisers. Once downtown, the men surrendered and turned "their unharmed hostage over to police. They had promised to release all five garage employees only after Mr. Poirier, 'a reporter with French-language radio sta- tion CJMS, accepted to act as their mediator with the police. Several shots were exchang- ed as police surrounded the gas station where the men took refuge after an attempted bank holdup at a nearby branch of the Provin- cial Bank of Canada.
