Sex Trafficking Arrests in SA

By Bill O'Neil

A nationwide crackdown on underage prostitution brings results in San Antonio.

Officials said one victim has been recovered locally--with four alleged pimps landing behind bars. It's an all too familiar theme for girls who may find themselves adrfit in life said the FBI's Ron Hosko.  

"Exploiters will exploit that gap--they will move in to that gap and try to fill it" Hosko said, adding the nightmare will quickly begin for the young victims.  

"Then they aare trapped in the cycle that involves drugs, it involves physical abuse--it may involve torture" Hosko said. While the numbers in Operation Cross County may be relatively small--105 victims recovered and 150 arrests--Hosko said the job is far from finished.  

"Despite our many challenges--those who exploit children should know we--this team--will continue to seek them out--and bring them to justice" Hosko said.
