An attorney in Scioto County has been charged with human trafficking. 

74-year-old Michael Mearan is scheduled for  arraignment today on human trafficking, racketeering and related charges. He previously denied involvement. But  after more than a decade of his alleged victims telling their stories  to federal authorities, the former Portsmouth City Council member was arrested last week.

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.
