A Kentucky man pleaded guilty on Monday to child human trafficking charges and will serve one year after he allegedly attempted to sell a 4-year-old child for $2,500 at a Speedy Mart gas station.
29-year-old Harry Day was apprehended when a description of his vehicle and license plate were reported to police on Sunday while he was at the Speedy Mart in Corbin, Kentucky State Police stated in a press release today.
The white Nissan was then tracked to an address on Spider Creek Road where troopers located the child inside the home, which belonged to the victim's mother, Gertrude Hensen.
Troopers found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia inside. Day and Hensen both admitted to using methamphetamine earlier in the day.
Day was charged with promoting human trafficking of a child under 18 and driving under the influence, while Hensen was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and two counts of endangering the welfare of a minor.
The case remains under investigation by Tpr. Kyle Trosper.
