Kentucky social worker Chad Albert Buckley forced a parent to sell him drugs as a condition of child visitation.
Social worker accused of using child as bargaining chip to buy drugs
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A social worker is behind bars Wednesday after police say he used a child as a bargaining chip to buy prescription drugs from the child's parent.
According to court documents, social worker Chad Buckley, 39, made an agreement with the parent of a child he was assigned to buy Oxycontin pills for a discounted price and visits with the child.
Documents say the original offer was four pills at $25 per pill, but Buckley only paid $30 cash, a $25 gas card, and an in-home visit with the child.
Buckley was arrested at 6:00 p.m. Tuesday night and is being charged with conspiracy to traffic a controlled substance, first degree official misconduct, and bribery of a public servant.
