Human Trafficking

Just a few months ago, multiple law enforcement agencies broke a massive human trafficking operation that operated in Tallahassee. More than 170 suspects were arrested in connection with the abuse of a young teen girl. Now, during National Human Trafficking Awareness Month, an expert panel talks about the pervasiveness of the crime and what's being done to address it. On the program are: Robin Hassler Thompson, executive director of the Survive and Thrive Advocacy Center; Former federal prosecutor, now attorney with the Holland & Knight law firm Barbara Martinez; and Leon County Commission Chair Rick Minor.
