Kylie Ruby Flores, a woman from Washington State who reportedly sold her 6-year-old daughter for sex with a man she met online in exchange for Nike sneakers and small change received a 23-year prison sentence.
According to the US Department of Justice, 31 year-ols Kylie Ruby Flores, met Trever Harder through the dating service called Plenty of Fish and allegedly sold the little girl to him.
Federal prosecutors claim that Harder, who recorded himself raping the girl in his residence, promised to provide Flores with new Nike shoes, “small amounts” of cash, as well as a place to stay.
Both Kylie Ruby Flores and Trever Harder have since entered guilty pleas, according to the U.S Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Washington.
“The facts of this case present some of the most egregious sexual abuse of a child one can imagine,” U.S Attorney Vanessa Waldref said in a statement Wednesday after Flores’ was sentenced.
U.S Attorney Vanessa Waldref said that the “sentence was important,” but added it was “equally important to remember that Flores’ sentence will likely be much shorter than the lifelong impact on the child.”
“Today’s sentence is important, but it is equally important to remember that Flores’ sentence will likely be much shorter than the lifelong impact on the child,” Waldref added. “No sentence can return the child’s innocence, but our community is now safer and stronger.”
According to authorities the duo committed the heinous abuse between February 2 and July 26 of 2021, per the initial criminal indictment.
The young girl was brave enough to describe the abuse she endured at the hands of Harder, who had hidden a camera in cat tree in his apartment to film the sickening act on his couch, according to prosecutors.

That video, filmed last July, was eventually confiscated by authorities, the New York Post reports.
Waldref also noted the only beneficial aspect of the disgusting case was the fact that the little girl wasn’t murdered, but added that “she is not the only child in danger.”
“Thanks to an effective and cooperative investigation, she is neither missing nor murdered today — but she is not the only child in danger,” Waldref said. “Today’s sentence sends a clear message to those who seek to sexually abuse children: Justice is coming.”
While prosecutors did not immediately reveal the girl’s relationship to Flores, the Spokane Spokesman-Review ultimately identified the girl as Flores’ daughter.
