A TEXarkana woman was indicted Thursday by a Bowie County grand jury for human trafficking.
Linda Michelle Dooley, 38, aka “Gucci” is accused of posting advertisements on internet escort sites to invite people to have sex with a 16-year-old girl who was reported missing in March to the Bowie County Sheriff’s Office, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Dooley allegedly arranged for the girl to have sex with up to five men per day at a price of $200 each.
BCSO and Texas Department of Public Safety investigators determined the girl had been living in Dooley’s home on Waterman Street in TEXarkana, and eventually tracked the girl down and took her into state care.
The girl allegedly reported that Dooley kept most, if not all of the money the girl received through prostitution “to cover expenses related to housing” the girl. The girl allegedly believed the life she had was “simply a cost associated with making her own way.”
