Lakeport Couple in Human Trafficking Case Enter Pleas

A Lakeport couple connected to a human trafficking case was in Lake County Superior Court yesterday. 27-year-old Sam Lindsey Massette, and 27-year-old Krystina Marie Pickersgill, both pleaded not guilty. According to the Lake County DA, the pair are charged with felony counts of human trafficking, pimping and pandering, procuring for prostitution, and conspiring with other individuals. Massette and Pickersgill were arrested on June 5 following an investigation that was prompted by a young woman who claimed the pair sold her into prostitution in the Bay area. Authorities expect that more victims will come forward now.
