South Carolina Cracking Down On Human Trafficking

Posted: Updated:
Columbia, SC - There's a plan in South Carolina to put a stop to human trafficking.

State leaders say it happens more than people realize...from online to truck stops.

Changes to the law are in place to crack down on the growing problem.

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson assigned a task force, made up of law enforcement, government agencies, and advocacy groups to educate and spread awareness.

"We know that there are certain groups that are more susceptible to being trafficked and those are usually younger children," said Wilson.

Some businesses act as a front for human trafficking rings. The task force is still collecting data on the issue.
