As a result of the investigation, it was found the juvenile was trafficked from another state by Henry and compelled into prostitution by both suspects.
The victim has been placed in the State’s care pending medical treatment and additional interviews with the Child Assessment Center.
Both women are being held at the Harris County Jail. Henry’s bail is set at $100,000 while Garett is being held for $50,000.
