HOUSTON – A 22-year-old Brenham woman is set to appear in federal court following the return of a three-count indictment alleging sex trafficking of a minor.
Samantha Sanders, previously in state custody, is expected to make her initial appearance today.
The federal indictment was returned June 18, 2019.
Sanders is charged with recruiting, harboring and soliciting three minor victims for commercial sex acts. The victims were under the age of 18 at the time of the sexual encounters, according to the indictment. Sanders is alleged to have benefited financially from her involvement in the trafficking of the minor victims.
If convicted, she faces a minimum of 10 years and up to life in prison.
