Last week, we wrote a blog post about Florida’s intention to crack down on sex trafficking. Sex traffickers bring individuals over state or national borders using coercion, fraud, or force, and make the victims engage in sex work against their will.
Florida – particularly Miami and the Pensacola areas – are known as hot spots for sex trafficking and prostitution. So it didn’t take long for law enforcement to make a huge prostitution bust. How big? “Operation Not So Silent Night” resulted in the arrest of over 100 individuals.
