Local Human Trafficker Sentenced To Prison Time

Columbus Division of Police

Prosecutors say a Columbus man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for promoting prostitution and human trafficking. 

Andrew Harris - also known as Bobby Smith and "Jamacian Rick"- targeted drug-addicted women and made them advertise sexual services online. Prosectors say Harris used physical violence to compel the behavior.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
