The Brockport man accused of trying to sell his kids on Craigslist, told state police that the ad was a joke.

State Police Investigator Bryan Blum said Joshua A. Stagnitto, 24, of 29 Main St., Apt. 1, was charged with one count of third-degree falsely reporting an incident, a misdemeanor, after a report was made to Monroe County Child Protective Services advising them of the posting on the online marketplace.

The posting indicated a person was selling their children. Police said an investigation revealed Stagnitto was the source of the posting.

Blum said Stagnitto was accused of attempting to sell his two sons – ages 1 and 2.
