Houstonians Charged with Trafficking Children for Sex

HOUSTON (AP) _ A man and a woman have been convicted in Texas of trafficking children for sex in investigations linked to Arkansas and Louisiana.

Prosecutors in Houston say David J. Golson and Arieal J. Bishop have coerced at least two minors since 2011.

Bishop pleaded guilty Thursday to possession of child pornography, sex trafficking of a minor and transportation of a minor. She faces up to 20 years in federal prison.

Golson faces up to life in prison after pleading guilty to sex trafficking of minors in Texas and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking in Arkansas. The cases are merged.

Prosecutors say Bishop videotaped Golson having sex with a 17-year-old girl. Bishop posted advertisements for commercial sex for herself and the victim in Houston and Louisiana.

 

The two were arrested in Arkansas.
