A local woman has pleaded not guilty to an indictment charging her with human trafficking for allegedly allowing the repeated sexual assault of a female child.
Quineshia Lacole Fuller was previously indicted in another case involving the sexual assault of a child and human trafficking.
Fuller 28, who has listed addresses in Greenville, Garland and Dallas in court records, was indicted by a Hunt County grand jury in January on one count of trafficking of persons continuous.
Fuller was arraigned on the charge Friday morning during a hearing in the 196th District Court. Judge Andrew Bench accepted the plea and scheduled an interim hearing in the case for March 20 on both the most recent indictment and a previous tampering with a witness indictment for which Fuller also pleaded not guilty.
The trafficking indictment alleged Fuller permitted a female Jane Doe victim to have been sexually assaulted on Jan. 1, 2018, and April 1, 2018.
The tampering with a witness indictment was issued in April of last year and alleged she attempted to influence and/or coerce a female victim, who was reported to be a witness in the case of Dereck Wayne Fuller Jr., not to talk about the defendant “with any member of law enforcement or forensic interviewer” on or about June 20, 2018.
Both of the indictments are first-degree felonies, punishable upon conviction by a maximum sentence of five to 99 years to life in prison.
Fuller is in custody in the Hunt County Detention Center, being held in lieu of $500,000 bond.
Dereck Fuller was convicted in November on two counts of sexual assault of a child and one count of trafficking of persons-continuous and a jury sentenced him to 99 years in prison on the trafficking count and 20 years in prison on each of the sexual assault of a child charges.
