A resident of Fayette County, West Virginia (USA), has pleaded guilty to being involved in the sex trafficking of a minor, allowing her to be raped by a police chief twice in exchange for money the State’s Southern District Attorney’s Office announced this Wednesday.

Kristen Naylor-Legg, 28, admitted that Larry Allen Clay Jr., who was chief of the Gauley Bridge Police Department and also worked for the Fayette Sheriff’s Department, raped her 17-year-old stepdaughter for $ 100 and cut the price in half for their second non-consensual intimate encounter. The rapes occurred in June 2020, and on the second occasion, Clay did not pay the woman the $ 50 agreed to have sex with the teenager.

Naylor-Legg was present both times. According to The West Virginia Record, in the spring of 2020, she began an extramarital affair with Clay who became interested in the teenager.


The first violation occurred on the road outside Gauley Bridge, where the officer arrived in his police vehicle while performing his duties. He was wearing his work uniform and ordered the victim to perform oral sex on him, after which he raped her in the car. On the second occasion, the young woman was raped in the old city high school building, when Clay was also on duty.

After the rape, Naylor-Legg gave the teenager paper towels to clean up. When using them, the victim threw them in the corner of the room and thanks to this the investigators have been able to collect the DNA evidence necessary to indict those responsible.

Now, Naylor-Legg faces life in prison if sentenced during the next court hearing, which will take place on December 9. You will also need to register as a sex offender.

Meanwhile, the attacker’s hearing will be held on November 9. Clay, who has pleaded not guilty, is also charged with conspiracy and sex trafficking of a minor under duress. Both face a minimum of ten years in jail and risk spending the rest of their lives behind bars.
