Texas woman forces two underage girls from her family to have sex with men at motels over seven months, arrested
The abuse came to light when the younger girl told another family member about Victoria Nicole Bautista, 29, forcing them into prostitution.
A Texas woman has been arrested for allegedly sex trafficking two minor family members, aged 11 and 16, and making them have sex with men in different motels over seven months.
Victoria Nicole Bautista, 29, started prostituting the two girls just two or three weeks before the younger one's 11th birthday at a motel in Mesquite, according to an arrest warrant obtained by WFAA.
Bautista told the girls they had to go inside a black Mercedes that was waiting outside the motel, where three people were waiting for them — the driver, the driver's cousin, and a third person unrelated to either of them.
When they got inside, the men gave the girls an unknown amount of money and began sexually touching them before taking off theirs and the childrens' clothes and having sex with them. The warrant states that, when they were done, the girls ran back to Bautista, who didn't ask them if they were okay and just demanded the money they had received.
After that initial incident, the girls were abused "at least every two weeks" at different motels around the Dallas Fort-Worth area by the Mercedes driver, his cousin, as well as a different third abuser.
During one such incident, the girls were reportedly hit on the head until they passed out, and when they woke up, a person they did not know was having sex with them. Afterward, the 11-year-old told another family member about what had transpired, and the Balch Springs police were notified.
Detectives began investigating the allegations on October 17, and a day later arrested Bautista on charges of continuously trafficking persons under the age of 18, compelling prostitution under the age of 18, possession of drug paraphernalia, and theft of property $100 to $750.
Bautista is currently being held at the Dallas County Jail on a $201,000 bond.
