COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A convicted child molester who allegedly sold the boy he sodomized to another pedophile is being charged under the state's 3-year-old human trafficking law.
Kenton Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders says the case of 39-year-old Bobby Jo Perry II of Elsmere is the northern Kentucky county's first human trafficking case.
Perry faces up to 10 years in prison if found guilty in Kenton Circuit Court. A jury found Perry guilty Wednesday of one of two counts of first-degree sodomy, with the jury recommending a 45-year sentence.
Kenton Circuit Judge Gregory Bartlett will sentence Perry on Nov. 8. The victim, now 16, testified at trial that he was sodomized by Perry four times at the age of 11. Perry is now awaiting trial on the human trafficking charge.
