Deaf Woman on Trial for Prostitution at Nueces County Courthouse

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Sign language interpreters were on hand at the Nueces County Courthouse Monday for an unusual prostitution case, in which the defendant was deaf.

Lisa Bouillon, 44, is on trial for soliciting an undercover Corpus Christi police officer. Two sign language interpreters  communicated each and every work to Bouillon as the first witness, an undercover police officer, testified about what led up to her arrest.

A recording of the bust was played for jurors.

It's not the first time Bouillon had been charged with prostitution. She has been arrested several times in the past, and in 2010, she was sentenced to prison for that crime. If convicted again, she could face up to two years in prison.
