Sex Trafficking Arrests Update

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA -

Authorities conducted sweeps in 76 cities over a 3 day period as part of the massive prostitution bust and child sex trafficking operation. Across the country, 150 people, described as pimps, have been arrested and 105 sexually exploited children have been rescued. We caught up with a GBI special agent in our area who says this operation was needed.

Agent Charles Kicklighter says, "The ultimate goal is to find, to rescue underage girls. But we do come across adult women that are in the same boat, they're being forced to prostitute themselves be these pimps. And we offer them help just as we would the underage girls."
