A meth addict was arrested after trying to sell a 4-year-old child for $2,500 at a Kentucky gas station.
Harry Day offered the African American boy to customers at a Speedy Mart in Corbin.
Witnesses called 911 with a description of the car he was driving, leading police to the child’s home. The boy was safe with his mother, Gertrude Henson, who was also questioned and charged. Police found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in the house.
Day was charged with human trafficking of a child and driving under the influence. He agreed to plead guilty to the human trafficking charge and was sentenced to one year in prison.
Henson was charged with possession of methamphetamine, third-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of endangering the welfare of a minor.
