Lexington Woman Accused Of Trafficking Daughter

A Lexington mother is in custody after officers say she trafficked her then 12-year-old daughter to her boyfriend.

33-year-old Stephanie Watts and 34-year-old Juan Hernandez-Plata were taken into police custody on Christmas Eve.

The reported victim in this case told investigators at the Lexington Children's Advocacy Center on December 4, that her mother demanded she have sex with her 34-year-old boyfriend at the couple's home on Meadow Lane.

The child says her mother removed her clothing, then left the room. That's when the victim says Hernandez-Plata sodomized her. The next day, the victim says Watts gave her $80 and told her not to tell anyone what had happened.
