Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have obtained additional indictments for two individuals already facing charges in connection to an ongoing TBI juvenile human sex trafficking investigation.
After receiving information from the Tennessee Department of Children's Services, TBI Agents opened this case on July 8, 2015. During the course of the investigation, and with the cooperation of the 14th District Attorney General's Office in Coffee County, Agents developed information that, on several occasions between February and July 2015, Kasity Fults-Hill and her husband Christopher Hill participated in an effort to traffic a 17-year-old for the purposes of commercial sex.
Last week, the Coffee County Grand Jury returned indictments for Fults-Hill and Hill, charging Kasity, 25, of Tullahoma, with an additional two counts of Trafficking for Commercial Sex Acts and charging Christopher, 32, of Nashville, with an additional three counts of Trafficking for Commercial Sex Acts.
"I appreciate the efforts of the TBI in uncovering the evidence in this case so that we can hold these individuals responsible for their acts," said 14th District Attorney General Craig Northcott. "My office and I are fully committed to insuring that this conduct is eradicated from this community and seeking justice for the victims in this and any other similar situation."
Earlier this year, the Montgomery County Grand Jury returned indictments as part of this investigation, charging Fults-Hill and Hill with eight counts each of Trafficking for Commercial Sex Acts and two counts each of Money Laundering. A third subject was also indicted by the Montgomery County Grand Jury in connection to this case. At the time of this release, the Hills remained in the custody of the Coffee County Jail on unrelated charges.
