CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Two Fayette County residents, one of whom is in law enforcement, have been charged with federal sex trafficking allegations.
According to the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of West Virginia, Larry Allen Clay, 57, and Kristen Naylor-Legg, 28, were charged this week. Investigators say Clay paid Naylor-Legg $50 on two separate occasions to engage in sexual activity with a 17-year old girl.
Clay was employed by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department and was the Gauley Bridge Police Chief at the time of the two alleged incidents. Court documents indicate Clay actually wore his Gauley Bridge Police uniform in the first encounter. The second incident occurred inside the former Gauley Bridge High School and investigators were able to retrieve a DNA sample at the scene.
The two are facing a preliminary hearing on March 31. If convicted each could face at least ten years in federal prison.
