    Human Trafficking across the US - 2016

    http://billingsgazette.com/news/crim...28c198b50.html

    While little is being discussed nationally in the news, this article is a bit of information about 2 young women abducted in Pennsylvania (East Coast) and were rescued in Wyoming by an observant State Trooper in January 2016. Story is, at least one woman was being taken to California (West Coast) for prostitution.

    IMO, this case, or any case like it, needs more attention/following/sharing ACROSS THE NATION. It was just a one-night blurb on the news in our nation's capital, and finding information on this seems to be "hit-or-miss" in searching.

    "Lester Tucker, 38, of Oakland, Calif., and Janice Scott, 27, of Modesto, Calif., both pleaded not guilty before Carbon County District Court Judge Wade Waldrip (Wyoming).
    Waldrip said that the cases would be combined and that trial would be scheduled within 180 days.
    Though the cases were combined, Tucker and Scott addressed Waldrip separately and court bailiffs seated them apart from one another.
    During Waldrip’s recitation of the defendant’s rights, he asked if either of them was not a U.S. citizen. Scott spoke up, saying she was not a U.S. citizen." February 23, 2016 http://www.rawlinstimes.com/news/201...ad-not-guilty/

    According to this news article, the trial should be held (and more information available) by August 2016. Victims have only been identified as
    S.P and N.B. They were taken into protective custody in Wyoming in January 2016.

    If you have information on this case or others like it, please share.

    Thank you for posting this. I agree, cases like these need more attention. It seems quite often in cases of missing young people, someone will bring up the possibility of human trafficing which usually elicits a response from someone else challenging the fact that human trafficing even exists. It is a real and dangerous problem in our world and I think it would be beneficial for us to discus it more.

    Living in Maryland, this one hits way too close to home. California man picks up two 18-year-old foster-care-refuges in Arkansas, and bring them to Maryland (and who knows where else?) for sex trafficking. How many more cases are out there? If you find any, share them. These low-lifes need to have the book thrown at them across the country. The problem of our "lost children" (abused by the system, family, or simply making wrong choices) feeds this monster business.

    Any one interested in following these cases as they come up to see what the judicial results will be as well as making sure they get publicized across the entire US? My feeling is that most people think it is just "someone else's problem -- NOT in my my back yard." The truth is, it probably is but you just don't know it!
