INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A judge has sentenced a woman to 2 years of home detention for what prosecutors called an adoption scam.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Greenberg connected a couple with an expectant mother. But it turned out there wasn’t one.

43-year-old Michelle Greenberg pleaded guilty to forgery and obstruction of justice in connection with the failed adoption.

Authorities say the adoptive parents paid $13,000 in 2011 for an adoption that never occurred.

The judge also ordered Greenberg have no contact with the victims in the case and she is not allowed to have a job related to children in the future.
