Boone County man indicted by grand jury for human trafficking, drug possession and forgery

Attorney General Daniel Cameron says that action by his Special Prosecutions Unit resulted in the indictment of Jason Marley, 51, of Boone County for human trafficking, drug possession, and forgery.


On October 4, a Boone County Grand Jury indicted Marley on one count of Human Trafficking-Commercial Sexual Activity/Minor (Class B Felony), two counts of Human Trafficking-Commercial Sexual Activity (a Class C Felony), one count of Unlawful Transaction with a Minor First Degree-Controlled Substance (Class C Felony), 15 counts of Forgery Second Degree (Class D Felony), and one count of Possession Controlled Substance First Degree (Class D Felony).
According to the indictment, Marley subjected two individuals to sex trafficking.

One was trafficked as a minor. The other individual was trafficked as an adult.

He was also indicted for the unlawful possession of methamphetamine, knowingly inducing a minor to engage in illegal activity involving a controlled substance, and forgery.
The Boone County Sheriff’s Office investigated the case. Assistant Attorney General Barbara Whaley presented the case before the Boone County Grand Jury on behalf of the Commonwealth.

The charges in an indictment are allegations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
