The Montgomery County Human Trafficking Task Force was one of nearly 100 law enforcement and service organizations to participate in the statewide crackdown that led to the arrests of 149 “johns” seeking to buy sex.
Seven people were arrested locally, including a 55-year-old UD administrator; a 44-year-old Indiana University professor from Richmond; and two airmen, one with an address in Dayton and another with an address in Washington, D.C., according to Yost’s release.
In addition a 45-year-old Fairfield man was arrested in the Montgomery County sting.
Steve Irwin, spokesman for the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, said the men are facing charges of soliciting prostitution, a first-degree misdemeanor.
The Montgomery County Human Trafficking Task Force is comprised of the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Butler Twp. Police Department, Miami Twp. Police Department and Homeland Security Investigations.
