LOUISVILLE, KY - (3 Nov 2017) - United States Attorney Russell M. Coleman today announced the sentencing this week in United States District Court, before Senior Judge Charles R. Simpson III, of a Louisville man, to 121 months in prison for sex trafficking of a minor.

Keith L. Napier, Jr., 27, admitted that beginning in March of 2016, in Jefferson County, Kentucky, he asked Jane Doe, a 14-year-old female, if she could help him earn money to pay off debts by performing commercial sex acts. Napier had a reasonable opportunity to observe Jane Doe, and also knew her real age. From March 2016 to May 2016, Napier transported Jane Doe to and from appointments with clients for commercial sex.

The commercial sex acts frequently took place at hotels, frequented by out-of-state visitors. Napier advertised the commercial sex acts on the internet website,

The investigation was opened during a prostitution sting coinciding with the Kentucky Derby when Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) officers found a listing on advertising prostitution.

A LMPD Detective arranged a meeting and encountered a 14-year-old female. Napier had transported the minor to the Jefferson County hotel to perform a commercial sex act.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Amanda E. Gregory of the Western District of Kentucky. The case was investigated by LMPD and the FBI's Louisville Division.
