Emergency motion denied in case of parents accused of trafficking daughter
September 14, 2018 12:30 PM
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - A judge has denied an emergency motion to stop a new forensic interview with the children of Teri Sanchez and James Stewart.
The two are accused of trafficking their young daughter.
The Attorney General's Office was scheduled to have that interview this afternoon with the children. That meant the defense's scheduled interview would, in turn, be pushed back until after this week.
The state reminded the court earlier this week that children don't always follow a strict court-imposed timeline stating that the children have had a stable home life for the past four months with the same foster family.
Sanchez and Stewart are set to head to trial in February.
