BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (WXIX) – A Northern Kentucky car dealership owner will spend almost two decades in prison for sex trafficking.

Jason Marley was sentenced Wednesday to 18 years following his conviction for sex trafficking.

In 2021, the Boone County Sheriff’s Office Crime Suppression Unit began investigating after a complaint alleged Marley’s car dealership could be involved in criminal activity regarding vehicle titles, the sheriff’s office previously said.

Another complaint followed which said Marley might be involved in illicit sexual activity with women, the sheriff’s office said. One of the women was a minor.

The information investigators received claimed the women were being exchanged for illegal drugs.

The Crime Suppression Unit interviewed the victims and their stories lined up with the information from the complaints, according to the Boone County Sheriff’s Office.

“[Marley] was also indicted for the unlawful possession of methamphetamine, knowingly inducing a minor to engage in illegal activity involving a controlled substance, and forgery,” Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said in 2022.

Marley was sentenced for the following charges:

  • Human Trafficking-Commercial Sexual Activity/Minor
  • Human Trafficking-Commercial Sexual Activity (two counts)
  • Unlawful Transaction with a Minor First Degree-Controlled Substance
  • Forgery
  • Possession of Controlled Substance First Degree
