A Texas appeals court has upheld the life sentence of a woman convicted of human trafficking in Bowie County earlier this year.
Linda “Gucci” Dooley, 39, was found guilty in March by a jury and sentenced to life. Dooley posted ads for the services of a 16-year-old girl on a website and kept some of the money the girl earned in prostitution. Dooley provided the girl with drugs.
The girl was reported as a run-away and was staying at Dooley’s house in TEXarkana. A woman who was a past victim of child sex trafficking assisted investigators in locating the girl.
