Ohio Ranked 4th Worst State for Human Trafficking

Ohio is a hotbed of human trafficking, under-aged sex bondage, and prostitution.

Bill Bolden, an investigator with the U.S. Marshal's office says Ohio ranks as high as number 4 in the nation when it comes to human trafficking and related crimes. Bolden says he has seen girls as young as 14 become snared into this seedy underground world.

U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott says they recently rescued a girl from bondage while being kept in a dungeon on the Texas border with Mexico.

Elliott urges young people to be very careful when interacting on social media, and warns parents to closely monitor their children's internet usage. Some experts estimate there are up to 50,000 predators online searching for their next victim.
