Sex Trafficking Sweeps Nation

The FBI typically does not investigate adult prostitution, leaving it as a state and local matter, but in recent years it has made child prostitution a priority in a program the FBI calls Operation Cross Country.

The FBI arrested 150 people across the United States on charges of holding children against their will for prostitution, a three-day weekend sweep that officials on Monday called the largest-ever operation against child sex-trafficking.

The arrests were made in 76 U.S. cities. FBI agents and local police recovered 105 children during the operation at truck stops, motels, casinos and other places where they were forced to work as prostitutes.

It’s hard to believe, but human trafficking is taking place right here in South Dakota. A special task force has been formed. U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson talks about it.

Nationally, about 1,350 people have been convicted as part of the FBI’s program and at least 10 of them were sentenced to life in prison.
