Man Tried To Sell His Girlfriend’s 4-Year-Old Daughter At Gas Station For $2,500 To Buy Drugs

Man Tried To Sell His Girlfriend’s 4-Year-Old Daughter At Gas Station For $2,500 To Buy Drugs Knox County Police Dept.

A Kentucky man was arrested on child trafficking charges after he attempted to sell his girlfriend’s 4-year-old daughter at a local gas station for $2,500 to buy drugs. Harry Day, 29, was overheard discussing the sale by another patron at the Speedy Mart in Corbin who then called the police to report the incident. Thankfully, the child is safe.

  1. Police tracked Day to his home. The person who reported the attempted sale was smart enough to write down his car’s license plate number, which helped police be able to track Day to his home. There, they also found the little girl in question as well as the child’s mother and Day’s girlfriend, 26-year-old Gertrude Henson.
  2. It’s clear that Henson and Day are drug addicts. At the residence, police discovered methamphetamine and related drug paraphernalia. Both Henson and Day admitted that they’d used meth earlier in the day and were high when they went to the gas station. They were arrested on the spot.
  3. Both faced multiple charges. Day was charged with promoting human trafficking of a child under the age of 18 and driving under the influence. Henson didn’t get off scot-free either and was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and two counts of endangering the welfare of a minor. She has one another child but it’s unclear how or if that child was involved in this incident.
  4. Neither of them will spend a day in jail. In what seems like a particularly cruel case of justice not being served, Day was able to take a plea deal that saw the DUI charge against him dropped. The remaining charge got him only 360 days in prison, the Times-Tribune reports. It is unclear whether or not Henson has appeared in court yet or what her punishment will be.
  5. Hopefully the children have been removed from the home. Neither Day nor Henson is fit to be parents and it’s in the best interest of the children that they’re either sent to live with a relative or even placed into care rather than be in such a dangerous and toxic home situation.
