FBI-led Raids Result in Rescue of 69 Child Hookers and Arrests of 99 Pimps

WASHINGTON — Child prostitution continues to be a nationwide problem.

With that in mind, over the past few days, the FBI along with local and state police and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) concluded Operation Cross Country V, in which 69 child prostitutes were “rescued”,  the FBI said Monday.

Additionally, authorities said the operation in 40 cities netted nearly 885 arrests including 99 pimps.

“Child prostitution continues to be a significant problem in our country, as evidenced by the number of children rescued through the continued efforts of our crimes against children task forces,” said Shawn Henry, executive assistant director of the FBI’s Criminal, Cyber, Response, and Services Branch. “There is no work more important than protecting America’s children and freeing them from the cycle of victimization.”

The crackdown was part of the  nationwide Innocence Lost National Initiative.
