MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – Three people are accused of participating in an effort to traffic a 17-year-old for commercial sex acts at various locations in Montgomery County.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation opened the case on July 8, 2015, making it the first under a change in state law that gives the TBI original jurisdiction to investigate allegations of human trafficking in Tennessee.
Last week on March 7, indictments were returned by a grand jury on Kasity Hill, her husband Christopher Hill, and Amy Ferrell.
Kasity Hill, 25, of Tullahoma, is charged with eight counts of trafficking for commercial sex acts and two counts of money laundering.
Her 32-year-old husband, of Nashville, faces the same charges.
Ferrell, 24, of Shelbyville, is charged with one count of trafficking for commercial sex acts.
The TBI reports all three were notified of their charges Tuesday. Two of them are already in local jails on unrelated charges, but all will be booked into the Montgomery County jail at a later date.
