The trial for accused two sex-trafficking suspects canceled, pleaded guilty for assaulting 6-year-old girl



Little Rock, Arkansas – The trial for the accused sex-trafficking suspects accused for abusing and attacking 6-year-old initially set to take place on November 15 was canceled because the suspects entered guilty plea.

According to the court records, the main suspects in the case are the 27-year-old Demarcus George and the 33-year-old Mario Waters accused to conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of a 6-year-old.

In February 2018, a 6-year-old was taken to Arkansas Children’s Hospital due to symptoms that were later determined to be caused by several sexually transmitted diseases, according to federal prosecutors. The child reportedly told police she has been raped by the two men in a hotel room.

Investigators were able to determine the location of the hotel based on the victim’s description and they checked the financial and reservations records in the hotel. The investigation revealed that victim’s mother had rented a room at the hotel in March 2018 and paid with a credit card. The child has since been removed from the mother’s custody.

The following part of the investigation led to George and Waters and authorities obtained search warrants for their blood and urine. They both tested positive for the sexually transmitted diseases that the child had contracted.

With entering their guilty plea, both of them admitted to had sexual contact with the 6-year-old girl and were involved in trafficking her with others.

Conspiracy to commit human trafficking of a minor is punishable by any term of imprisonment up to life and not less than five years of supervised release.

A judge is expected to sentence George and Waters at a later date.
