APPEAL STILL PENDING?:
SUMMARY:In 2011, Defendant Christopher Allen Turner threatened and inflicted violence on a 17-year-old girl and an adult woman in order to compel them to engage in commercial sex acts in the Dallas, Texas area. Victims were forced to give the money they earned to the defendant. Turner was sentenced to 6 years of parole, but he contacted one of the victims and violated other terms of his parole, so the court filed a motion to proceed with adjudication on all four charges that remains outstanding as of 12/31/12.
