Lexington mother charged with trafficking daughter

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A Lexington mother is being charged with offering her boyfriend sex acts with her then-12-year-old daughter for money.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports (http://bit.ly/1OmgW9v) that around the child’s birthday in August, 33-year-old Stephanie Watts offered her daughter money to have oral sex with her boyfriend, 34-year-old Juan Hernandez, in her home.

Court documents say the daughter told the Children’s Advocacy Center that when she told Watts she didn’t want to have sex with Hernandez, her mother replied, “Well you are going to.”

Documents say the next morning, Watts took $80 out of Hernandez’s pant pocket and told her daughter not to say anything.

The girlfriend of the alleged victim’s uncle told police Watts drunkenly admitted the incident to her in early September.

It’s unclear if Watts has an attorney.
