Three Individuals Charged in TBI Juvenile Human Trafficking Investigation
NASHVILLE – Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have obtained indictments for three individuals in connection to an ongoing juvenile human trafficking investigation.
After receiving information from the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services, TBI Agents opened a case on July 8, 2015, marking the first case initiated under a change in state law giving TBI original jurisdiction to investigate allegations of human trafficking in Tennessee. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that Kasity Hill, Christopher Hill, and Amy Ferrell participated in an effort over several months to traffic a 17-year-old for the purposes of commercial sex at various locations in Montgomery County.
On March 7th, the Montgomery County Grand Jury returned indictments, charging Kasity Hill (LEFT BELOW), 25, of Tullahoma, and her husband, Christopher Hill, 32, of Nashville, with eight counts each of Trafficking for Commercial Sex Acts and two counts each of Money Laundering. The Grand Jury also returned an indictment, charging Ferrell (FAR RIGHT), 24, of Shelbyville, with one count of Trafficking for Commercial Sex Acts. Today, authorities notified all three individuals of their new charges at two local jails, where they remain incarcerated on unrelated charges. All will subsequently be booked at the Montgomery County Jail at a later date.
