A Washington state woman has been sentenced to 23 years in prison for sex trafficking her 6-year-old daughter after selling her to a man she met online for shoes and cash.
Kylie Ruby Flores, 31, sold her daughter to a man identified as Trever Harder, whom she met on dating site Plenty of Fish, who promised to pay with Nike shoes, “small amounts” of cash and a place to stay. federal prosecutors said.
Both Flores and Harder, who was recorded sexually abusing the girl, pleaded guilty, according to the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Washington. So far, Hander’s sentence has not been issued after his guilty plea.reviewed New York Post.
“The facts of this case present some of the most egregious sexual abuse of a child one can imagine,” US Attorney Vanessa Waldref said in a statement Wednesday after sentencing.
“Today’s sentence is important, but it is equally important to remember that Flores’ sentence will likely be much shorter than the lifetime impact on the child,” Waldref added. “No sentence can restore the innocence of the child, but our community is now safer and stronger.”
The abuses where the couple was involved were committed between February 2 and July 26, 2021according to the indictment.
Flores described the abuse she faced at Harder’s hands, saying he set up a camera in a cat tree in her Cheney apartment to record the heinous attack on the girl on her couch. Authorities later seized the video that was filmed last July, prosecutors said.
“Thanks to an effective and cooperative investigation, today she is not missing or murdered, but she is not the only girl in dangerWaldref warned. “Today’s sentenced sends a clear message to those who seek to sexually abuse children: justice is coming.”
