Three tied to sex trafficking case in Lincoln
Lincoln Police have arrested two people, and issued citations to another already in jail, for their involvement in a human trafficking case in the Capitol City.
In Summer 2016, a sex trafficking investigation in Lincoln resulted in three arrests, one of which was Jacqueline E. Stebbins.
Recently, a 15-year-old came forward, stating that she was also a victim of the same sex trafficking scheme.
After an investigation, police contacted Stebbins in jail to give her additional citations, as well as arrested Darrell White and Amber Brecks.
Brecks, 24, and Stebbings, 33, were given citations for the pandering of a minor, and aid and abetting first degree sexual assault of a child.
White, 57, was cited for pandering of a minor.
After the investigation, authorities determined that the three gave the 15-year-old a false birthday to make her appear 19, coordinated sexual encounters, and took money.
Police said that there is a possibility more suspects are involved, and for more victims to come forward.
“They are taking advantage of someone who does not maybe have a current support system in place, and wanting to build a relationship with these particular individuals,” Lincoln Police Chief Jeff Bliemeister said. “They provide them clothing, housing, narcotics, and place them in a situation where it is difficult to get out.”
