Two people were arrested by the Richland County Sheriff’s Department in connection to human trafficking charges involving a 15- and 13-year-old.
Quincy Bright, 29, was charged with two counts of trafficking in persons and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and Brittany Gray-Bright, 21, was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor, said Sgt. Brittany Scott of the Richland County Sheriff’s Office of Public Information.
Bright and Gray-Bright were arrested at a residence at 104 Payton Place, near Fairfield Rd. in Lincolnshire, on Jan. 27, according to Sgt. Scott, who said that deputies were notified of a sexual assault at the residence involving a 15-year-old that occurred Jan. 23.
Sgt. Scott said the 15-year-old provided information about sex trafficking to members of the Sexual Assault Nurse Program at an area hospital, including that the 15-year-old was forced to perform sexual acts. After searching the residence, Sgt. Scott said deputies found a 13-year-old who was also found to be victimized in sex trafficking, and has been taken into protective custody.
