N.Y. Mom Faces New Charge for Suggestive Craigslist Ad Targeting Daughter's 9-Year-Old Rival

Prosecutors have added a child endangerment charge against a Long Island mother accused of posting a suggestive Craigslist ad to target a 9-year-old girl.

Margery Tannenbaum of Hauppauge was freed without bail after her arraignment Thursday in Central Islip. She pleaded not guilty to the endangerment accusation and an aggravated harassment charge filed when she was first charged in May.

Tannenbaum is accused of posting an ad that said in part, "I need a little affection."

Authorities said Tannenbaum gave respondents the number of her daughter's rival, generating at least 22 harassing calls.

Tannenbaum's attorney, Tad Scharfenberg, declined to comment on the accusations. He said his client is a good person who has no criminal record.
