A Kentucky man has been sentenced to less than a year in jail after he admitted to trying to sell his girlfriend's four-year-old daughter at a gas station after smoking methamphetamine. 
Harry Day, 29, was arrested on Sunday after Kentucky State Police received a call saying a man was observed offering a child for sale at the Speedy Mart in Corbin in exchange for $2,500. 
The person who reported the incident gave a description and license plate number of the suspect's car, which allowed troopers to track down the white Nissan to an address on Spider Creed Road.
