A federal jury on Thursday found the couple, Mohamed Toure and Denise Cros-Toure of Southlake, guilty as charged. According to the New York Times, lawyers for Toure and Cros-Toure dismissed the government’s claims, arguing that the couple had tried to help the girl. According to the April filing, the young woman, who is now 24, told the investigator that she had grown up in a mud hut in a village in Guinea. That August, the young woman reached out to a former neighbour. The two met at a Starbucks where the young woman explained that the situation at home had worsened.
