A California mother of 6 faces prison time for selling ceviche on Facebook



Mariza Reulas sold a plate of ceviche through a Facebook group called 209 Food Spot

She was arrested and could face a year in prison over that sale, KTRK reports.

Reulas, of San Joaquin County, California, was charged with selling an illegal substance. She was asked for a plate of ceviche last year by an undercover deputy. 209 Food Spot was under investigation since members didn't have permits to sell food. Ultimately, about a dozen people were cited with misdemeanors, and only Reulas pleaded not guilty.

It was just, like unreal, that they were saying you could face up to a year in jail.

Deputy district attorney Kelly McDaniel said selling food that's not subject to strict health policies could people that eat it in danger. But Reulas, a mother of six, found the charges unfair.
