Shawna Baxter (Outagamie Co. Jail)


In the human trafficking case, Baxter was convicted of receiving compensation for human trafficking, and pandering, court records show.

In the case with the runaways, she was convicted of two counts recklessly endangering safety, and two counts of intentionally contributing to the delinquency of a minor.


APPLETON (WLUK) -- An Appleton woman charged with receiving compensation for human trafficking was convicted Friday.

Shawna Baxter will be sentenced Sept. 13, according to the court records. She faced a total of ten charges in the two cases, but specific details of which counts she was convicted of were not immediately available.

Baxter allegedly forced a “low-functioning adult” to perform sex acts, while she took the money. Also, she allegedly harbored several runaway children and provided them with meth and, at times, injected them with drugs, according to the criminal complaints.
