SABINE COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Deputies with the Sabine County Sheriff's Office arrested three people last month in connection to allegations that money changed hands before a woman was unlawfully restrained and sexually assaulted by the two male suspects.
According to the arrest affidavit East Texas News obtained Thursday, Demetrius Lawan Gay, 23, of Hemphill, Natalie Linette Guidry, 48, of Nederland, and Galyn Tyrone White, 43, of Pineland, were all arrested and charged with engaging in organized criminal activity, trafficking of persons-sexual conduct, unlawful restraint exposing to serious bodily injury, and promotion of prostitution.
The narrative of the arrest affidavit stated that Gay, Guidry, and White received "compensation for personally rendered prostitution services." The three suspects are also accused of restricting the victim's movements by "force, intimidation, or deception," according to the affidavit.
The affidavit also said that one of the male suspects told the victim that he "owned her."
According to the affidavit, the engaging in organized criminal activity charge, a first-degree felony, stemmed from the fact that the three suspects conspired together to commit the other charges.
