PIKEVILLE, Ky. — A Pike County woman has been sentenced to 20 years in prison, after pleading guilty to child sex trafficking and producing child pornography.

Kena Reed, 29, of Pinson Fork, entered her guilty plea in federal court back in May. She admitted to providing a girl to various men for commercial sex acts, in exchange for money and drugs.

Reed admitted to trading sexual images of herself and the minor to Jacob West, 33, of Pinson Fork, in exchange for pills.

West is accused of stealing 5,000 pills from the South Williamson Food City. He was indicted in Pike Circuit Court on various charges, including human trafficking, theft and possession of child porn. He is set to go on trial in February.
