ONEONTA, Ala. (WDHN) — A Blount County man was convicted Thursday for paying a mother to hand her 4-year-old daughter over for sex.
Police say 47-year-old Rama Raj “Sonny” Erramraju’s charges included sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12, facilitating travel for an unlawful sex act and first-degree human trafficking.
Erramraju and the young girl’s mother, 37-year-old Amy Floyd Morgan, were both arrested and indicted in 2017.
According to court records, Erramraju committed the actions with the 4-year-old in 2015 and 2016 at the Covered Bridge Inn in Oneonta.
Morgan’s trial is set for 2020. She is the mother to four children, all of whom were removed from her custody.
