According to the criminal complaint, Buley’s 17-year-old daughter told investigators about the abuse last year. She said the trafficking involved several men and took place between 2014 and 2016.

Here is a portion of the criminal complaint:

A Juvenile Victim A recalls six additional times that she was trafficked by BULEY. These occurred after Juvenile Victim A and BULEY moved to Ely, St. Louis County, Minnesota. The day before each of these assaults, BULEY would tell Juvenile Victim A that she could not eat, and to take a shower, shave, and "get pretty" for the men. The day of each assault, BULEY would put Juvenile Victim A in the backseat of the car and drive to the residences of the men, which were all in small towns. Once at the residence, BULEY would bring Juvenile Victim A and start talking about drugs with the men, with whom she was familiar and friendly. BULEY would then leave, and the men, estimated to be between 40-60 years old, would take Juvenile Victim A into a bedroom. All of the men were much larger than Juvenile Victim A, and the men "were not gentle" with her. Juvenile Victim A stated the men hurt her by holding her down, and left bruises on her where they grabbed her on her arms, throat, thighs, and waist. Juvenile Victim A stated that during these assaults she felt disgusting and talking about it makes her nauseous. During the assaults Juvenile Victim A said that she was scared and that it felt like the men were "ripping" her body.

A judge has ordered a psychological/sexual evaluation of Buley prior to sentencing.
