Alabama man, 48, admits planning to kidnap a 'young, clean virgin', 14, so he could SELL her to a Tennessee sex traffickerDaily Mail

An Alabama man who hatched a plan to hire someone to kidnap a woman and her 14-year-old daughter and then sell the teen to a sex trafficker has pleaded guilty to federal charges.
A US Department of Justice statement says 48-year-old Brian David 'Blaze' Boersma, from Decatur, was arrested in October 2017 by undercover FBI agents.
The suspect believed the agents would kidnap the mother and child and had given them more than $3,000 for the job.
Boersma boasted to his co-worker that he would sell the girl to a pimp he knew in Memphis, Tennessee, who offered $8,000.
On Monday, Boersma pleaded guilty to charges of attempted kidnapping of a minor; attempted kidnapping; attempted sex trafficking of a child; possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possessing a firearm in furtherance of a violent crime.
The charges carry sentences of up to 65 years combined.
A sentencing date has not been set. US Attorney Jay Town says Boersma will likly spend the rest of his days behind bars.
'Boersma has revealed the worst parts of human depravity and his guilty plea provides little comfort to those who would have suffered unspeakable horrors,' Town stated. 'He will spend most, if not all, of the remainder of his life in prison…and then he has hell to look forward to.'
The defendant worked at the Alabama Farmers' Cooperative in Decatur shuttling trailers from the storage yard to the warehouse where they would be loaded with merchandise for shipment to other locations.
His plea agreement details his efforts in the fall of 2017 to encourage a co-worker at the co-op to find someone willing to kidnap a woman and her daughter for payment. Boersma, in installments, gave the co-worker $3,440 to hold for a kidnapping payment.
In mid-Sepember, the co-worker contacted the FBI and revealed Boersma's plan, prompting two agents to pose as would-be kidnappers.
According to Boersma's plea deal, he confided in his co-worker that he hoped to sell the 14-year-old girl to the Memphis pimp for up to $40,000 because she is 'a young, clean virgin.' Ultimately, the potential buyer offered him only $8,000 for the girl.
Boersma had outfitted a trailer with a mattress and restraints for holding the mother and daughter. He also placed inside the trailer a metal 'sex device' he had built so the woman could be tied to it, beaten and raped.
Boersma claimed that the woman's ex-husband wanted the woman and child kidnapped as retribution for the woman divorcing him and taking him to court for child support.
He said the ex-husband wanted to beat the woman with a bullwhip and it would be a 'bloody mess' in the trailer.
He said he put plastic down inside the trailer to help with clean up. Boersma also told the undercover FBI employees that once the woman was dead, he would 'have to go get 300lbs of lime and dig a hole.'
He said he would get the lime from the co-op and bury the body under a nearby bridge.
On October 10, Boersma and his co-worker met at a Decatur hotel with the undercover FBI agents who Boersma believed would cary out the abduction.
Boersma told the agents what he wanted done, provided photos of the two intended victims and handed the agents $3,440. He then led the agents to the woman's workplace, to her home and to the co-op, where he showed them the trailer he had prepared for holding the victims.
Shortly after returning to the hotel, police arrested Boersma as he approached his pickup truck. A loaded Smith & Wesson M&P .40-caliber pistol was recovered during a search of the truck.
Boersma was prohibited from possessing the gun because of a felony unlawful possession of a controlled substance conviction in Shelby County, Tennessee, in 1998.
