White Parents Accused Of Prostituting Their 7-Year-Old Daughter
A homeless couple are both behind bars for forcing their 7-year-old daughter to perform sex acts, pickpocket, panhandle in heels and attend “secret parties” in exchange for drugs and money.
The girl and her 8-year-old brother, who went to the same school, would often show up unkempt or would fall asleep during class. The school was aware that the parents, Teri Lee Sanchez and James Stewart Sr, 37, were known to be occasionally homeless.
In November of last year, the girl’s teacher noticed she was, “excessively unkempt and smelled of urine.” She lead her into the bathroom to put her in fresh clothing and clean her up. It was at this point when she noticed dried blood in her panties. The teacher informed the school principal and made contact with Albuquerque police and the Children, Youth and Families Department, and made a report to each.
Both the principal and teacher noted an additional incident where the girl was dropped off at school in an unfamiliar vehicle wearing high heels and appeared to have had her hair, and makeup professionally done.
