Mother accused of trading baby for truck is in a Kentucky jail

Accused of selling her baby, a southern Kentucky mother who police say has been on the run for weeks is in jail and talking about the charges.

U.S. Marshals found Heather Kaminsky in Florida and she was brought back to Kentucky late Thursday night.

Police say she sold her baby to a Corbin couple for a dodge truck. All three are charged with human trafficking.

Kaminsky says from jail that the baby was never sold and she didn't do anything wrong.

Heather Kaminsky had an early morning appointment with a Laurel County judge

Just hours after police brought her back to Kentucky from Florida where U.S. Marshals finally found her two weeks after police accused her of human trafficking for selling her baby for a truck.

Police say the truck was later sold for $800 and meth.

“They need to investigate and stop doing hearsay. And that's all it is. Someone called them and they got a tip on this and that. And that's what they believe,” Kaminsky said.

From jail Kaminsky claims she never sold her baby to Jeremy and Jaimee Brown.

“You guys see a birth certificate? Jeremy Brown is on it. So how can I sell a baby when he is on the birth certificate,” Kaminsky said.

Police are standing by their charges. They believe they had probable cause to arrest her. They are going to let the courts take it from here.

Police have also said that Florida social services had taken children away from Kaminsky before..and that she's been in trouble for meth before. She told us all of that is false.

“I never been in jail for drugs or meth. I never fled any state for anything,” said Kaminsky.

The judge set her bond at 50-thousand dollars cash.

Kaminsky will be back in court next Tuesday when police will line out the charges against her and a grand jury could consider the next step in the legal process.

The Laurel County judge said that if Kaminsky can meet her bond she will be under home incarceration.
