An Abbeville woman was arrested Tuesday for allegedly setting up a website to collect donations for a newborn whose mother died and trying to keep the money herself, according to an Austin American-Statesman report.
The report said Fallon Mouton didn't know the newborn's mother but used her photo to setup a website to solicit donations for the newborn's family, who lives in Texas, to help cover medical expenses. About $4,300 was reportedly donated.
The newborn's father told police that Mouton reached out to the family to tell them what she was doing and that the family would receive the donations. But he wasn't able to reach Mouton after the intial conversation, according to the report.
Mouton, 33, was charged with online impersonation and booked into Williamson County Jail on $10,000 bond.
