Sex Trafficking Persists In Metro Atlanta

Mar 15, 2017

There were two big stories that made headlines involving sex trafficking in Georgia last week.  In Savannah, a man was convicted of 19 counts of child sex trafficking. 


In Sandy Springs, police broke up a human-trafficking operation inside a million dollar home. Eight women were rescued and one man was arrested in connection with the crime.
