Prosecutors: Alabama man made plan to kidnap woman, daughter

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Prosecutors say an Alabama man who planned to hire someone to kidnap a woman and her 14-year-old daughter has pleaded guilty to child sex-trafficking charges.

A U.S. Department of Justice <a target=”&mdash;blank” href=”https://www.justice.gov/usao-ndal/pr/decatur-man-pleads-guilty-kidnapping-and-child-sex-trafficking-charges”>statement</a> says 48-year-old Brian David “Blaze” Boersma was arrested in October by undercover FBI agents. The Decatur man believed they would kidnap the mother and child and had given them more than $3,000. Boersma entered his guilty pleas before U.S. District Judge R. David Proctor on Monday.

The statement says Boersma boasted to his co-worker that he would sell the girl to a pimp he knew in Memphis, Tennessee, who offered $8,000.

A sentencing date has not been set. U.S. Attorney Jay E. Town says Boersma will spend most, if not all, of the remainder of his life in prison.
