West Virginia Couple Arrested For Adopting Black Children Allegedly Used As ‘Slaves’!

Blueprint Marketing Group | June 27, 2024


“A West Virginia couple is facing charges of human trafficking, child neglect, forced labor and more after, prosecutors allege, they adopted five Black children from a shelter to do forced labor and live in deplorable conditions. “It alleges human trafficking, human rights violations, the use of forced labor,” Kanawha County Circuit Judge Maryclaire Akers said of the indictment, according to West Virginia Metro News. “Human rights violations specific to the fact that these children were targeted because of their race and they were used basically as slaves from what the indictment alleges.” Whitefeather and Lantz are being held at South Central Regional Jail in Kanawha County on $500,000 bail, according to jail records. They both pleaded not guilty earlier this month. Whitefeather’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment from NBC News. Lantz, who according to court officials is representing himself, could not be reached for comment.

Kanawha County sheriff’s deputies found the children in October during a welfare check at the couple’s Sissonville home. Deputies forced their way into a barn on the property, where they found two children in a small room.

“The children had no means to exit the barn on their own, no running water, no bathroom facilities, and were obviously deprived of adequate hygienic care and food,” police said in a statement at the time. Police said they then found a “small child” locked inside the main home alone.” – NBC | Posted by Thrillz
