Several Pike County residents are speaking out against a woman that is accused of selling a 15 year old, in exchange for getting her bills paid.

Police say 33 year old Angela Kendrick allegedly sold a 15 year old girl to 36 year old William Justice, allowing him to rape the teen and in return, police say Justice paid Angela Kendrick's bills. We spoke with several Pike County residents and they say all Kendrick had to do was ask for help from the community.

"There's too many people in Pike County. We don't let that happen. If she needed help, that's why we got our churches," said Jerry Hall.

Kendrick has been charged with complicity to commit rape in the third degree. She was released from the Pike County Detention Center on Friday for $10,000 dollars bond and 36 year old William Justice was also released on $10,000 dollars bond. He is being charged with rape in the third degree.

Angela Kendrick is scheduled to appear in Pike County District Court on Tuesday.
