AG Releases Human Trafficking Report

The Ohio Attorney General's Office says local law enforcement agencies reported 30 human-trafficking cases in the past year. 15 arrests were made. The numbers were released as part of a new Ohio law requiring local agencies to collect data on human trafficking cases and report it to the AG's office. Authorities identified 38 sex-trafficking victims, most of them between the ages of 18 and 29. Of those, 21 were identified as having alcohol or drug dependency issues, and 12 were listed as being oppressed, marginalized or impoverished.
