Appellate Court Upholds Trafficking Conviction

Barbara Jean Barrett
Hunt County Jail

Jeffrey Barrett
Hunt County Jail

A court convicted a Hunt County couple of forcing their five adopted children to work at their puppy mill, and they will stay in jail. Jeffrey Barrett of Greenville is serving a life sentence, and his wife Barbara is serving 99 years after a jury convicted them of Continuous Child Trafficking. The Barretts kept the kids out of school, prohibited them from having friends, and forced them to work from sunup to sundown feeding the dogs, cleaning their pens, and other duties. An Appeals Court found the trials and sentences to be fair.
