CHARLESTON, W.Va.. – Two Fayette County residents, one of whom is under prosecution, have been charged with federal sex trafficking charges.
Larry Allen Clay, 57, and Kristen Naylor-Legg, 28, were charged this week, according to the US attorney for the southern district of West Virginia. Investigators say Clay paid Naylor-Legg $ 50 twice to have sex with a 17-year-old girl.
Clay was employed by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department and was police chief of Gauley Bridge at the time of the two alleged incidents. Court documents show that Clay was actually wearing his Gauley Bridge police uniform the first time he met. The second incident occurred at the former Gauley Bridge High School, and investigators were able to take a DNA sample on the spot.
The two face a preliminary hearing on March 31. If convicted, anyone could spend at least ten years in federal prison.
