A Kentucky man has been charged with promoting human trafficking after he allegedly tried to sell his girlfriend’s son at a gas station convenience store.

29-year-old Harry Day of Corbin was arrested after Kentucky State Police received a call saying an ‘agitated’ man was observed offering a child for sale at the Speedy Mart in exchange for $2,500.

The person who reported the incident gave a description and license plate number of the suspect’s car. Troopers were able to track down the white Nissan to an address on Spider Creed Road.

Officers then tracked the car down to a residence in Corbin and found the boy at his mother’s house along with methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. Both the boy’s mother — identified as 26-year-old Gertrude Henson — and Day admitted to using meth earlier that day, said police.

In addition to the human trafficking of a child under 18, Day has been charged with driving under the influence and other charges. Meanwhile, police charged Henson with possession of meth, possession of drug paraphernalia, and two counts of endangering the welfare of a minor.

Day pleaded guilty after he was charged with promoting human trafficking of a child under 18, the Knox County Court Clerk’s Office said.

While Henson has been charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a minor and possession of a controlled substance first-degree, among several other drugs charges.

Kentucky saw at least 136 cases of human trafficking in 2019, according to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, which keeps hold of the total reported cases in each state.

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.
