Federal prosecutors claim that for 50 50, Kirsten Neller League brought her 17-year-old family member to a community center in June 2020, where a local police chief allegedly raped the girl.
Court documents say the Naylor League instructed the girl during the alleged rape and later provided towels to clean her. A West Virginia police officer on duty, according to court documents, allegedly failed to pay the woman the agreed price and left.
On Wednesday, the 28-year-old Neller League convicted a minor in federal court in West Virginia of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking. He faces life in prison at the time of sentencing, scheduled for December. No matter how long he stays behind bars, he will have to register as a sex offender.
Her lawyer did not respond to a request for comment.
Larry Allen Clay Jr., now the former police chief of the junior police force Gowley Bridge, has been charged with using force and conspiracy to sexually assault a minor. Kelly, who was 57 at the time of his arrest in March, also served as Deputy Fight County Sheriff for about eight years.
He pleaded not guilty in May and will be tried in November. His lawyer, Sebastian Joy, declined to comment.
The lawsuit against the Nailer League began when a 17-year-old girl told a federal investigator in September and October 2020 that the Nailer League had struck a deal with Clay several months earlier.
U.S. Department of Homeland Security agent Brian Morris wrote in an affidavit that in June 2020, Clay allegedly raped the girl twice. The girl told investigators that Clay knew she was 17 because she and Nellar League had discussed their upcoming 18th birthday.
The Nailer League also took pictures of the girl’s breasts and hips and sometimes instructed the teenager to take similar pictures himself, Morris wrote in his affidavit. The documents added that the Nailer League then sent them to Clay and the so-called “other people” who allegedly paid him for the photos using the mobile service Cash app.
But according to the affidavit, the Nailer League presented mud more than pictures. When Kelly allegedly asked to see him one day in June 2020, he texted a member of his 17-year-old family. He then took the girl to the meeting place, the court said.
The affidavit states that Mati allegedly arrived in a gray police vehicle wearing his uniform. According to the affidavit, he allegedly forced the girl to have oral sex with him before raping her in a police vehicle. He then allegedly paid the Nailer League, which was present throughout the encounter, and left.
Later this month, the three went to a police sub-station inside the city-owned community center, officials said. Since Clay allegedly abused the teen, the Neller League told the girl to let him go, court documents added, adding that “it would not be a problem because he was ‘fixed’.”
When it was over, the Nailer League handed over their towels to clean themselves, the affidavit said, and Kelly allegedly failed to pay before leaving.
After interviewing the teenager months later, investigators found towels at the substation where he said he had left them. Investigators with West Virginia State Police examined the towels to forensic scientists. They contained the DNA of both the girl and the soil
Federal Prosecutor Jennifer Rida Herald told a judge during a hearing in March that Clay had allegedly made big plans for the 17-year-old girl. The Herald said the former police chief allegedly told the teen “he could be his sugar daddy,” and that he could arrange for other law enforcement officers to pay him 100 for the abuse. ۔ The prosecutor alleges that an officer accused of two counts of sexual assault in a nearby county told authorities that Clay contacted him to take an interest in such arrangements.
The Herald added that Kelly and Naylor allegedly did not stop with the 17-year-old. He said the two adults were allegedly having sex with each other, and once, another minor climbed on them. The Herald said the two allegedly tried to include the child with them.
Arguing to keep Clay closed, the Herald told the judge that – as police chief and sheriff’s deputy – the man has assumed the authority given by the community. But, she said, she used the power that society gave her to hurt a child.
The prosecutor told the judge, “The idea that a minor, who was being told he should have sex with a law enforcement officer in uniform or at a police station, might feel like an opportunity to say no. Is.” “His use of power made his crime worse and more arrogant.”
