Heather Kaminsky being returned to Laurel County by Laurel County Sheriff’s Detective Charlie Loomis.
LAUREL Co., Kentucky (WKYT) -- A mother is in jail for human trafficking--accused of selling her baby. Today, Heather Kaminsky answers to the charges in court and talks to us from jail.
The Laurel County woman just wrapped up a jailhouse interview with our own Phil Pendleton who told him police have the wrong story.
Kaminsky told our reporters moments after she appeared in district court, and pleaded not guilty, that she never traded or sold her baby. She says she can prove it with the baby's birth certificate.
The mother is accused of selling her newborn baby to Jeremy and Jaimie Brown for a 1999 Dodge Dakota, then police say she later traded the truck for money and meth, and ran off to Florida where she was found by US Marshals.
But Kaminsky says Jeremy Brown is the child's father and should have legal custody of him. She also says she's never been in trouble for drugs and the allegations that social services took her children away in Flordia are false. Kaminsky says that if Police check the baby's birth certificate then Jeremy Brown is listed as the father.
