SUMMARY:Waquita Wallace brought an 18-year-old mentally disabled woman to her home and held her captive in the month of June 2008. The disabled woman had a cousin who owed a debt of $3,300 to Wallace. This cousin gave the disabled woman to Wallace to pay the debt. April Cheney, Wallace's sister, transported the woman from the cousin's house--she knew of the abuse that the woman would face. Wallace imprisoned the victim, stole her disability checks, and forced her to work as a prostitute. Wallace was convicted of sex trafficking and sentenced to 240 months in prison, Cheney was also convicted on related charges and sentenced to 60 months in prison.
