More than 30 people are headed to jail after the largest sex trafficking bust in federal government history.
“Dozens of people have been convicted for their role in a massive international sex trafficking organization based out of Thailand, which sold women in a variety of U.S. cities, including Minneapolis,” said a FOX9 report.
According to the report, five defendants were convicted by the U.S. District Court in St. Paul, Minnesota last week on top of 31 who had already pleaded guilty in the case.
“The victims, all women in their 30’s, were smuggled from Bangkok, Thailand and sold in cities all over the country, including Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Houston, Chicago and D.C.,” the report said.
The sweeping operation to arrest and bring the victims to justice took two years, from 2014 to 2016.
According to the report, the women were “sold like cattle” until they paid off their bondage debt. Most were promised a better life in the United States, only to become sex slaves. The trafficking ring operated for more than a decade and reportedly hauled in tens of millions of dollars at the expense of the trafficked women.
As the women caught up in the scheme work to rebuild their lives, the members of the trafficking ring await sentencing, which will reportedly take place next year.

Massachusetts Child Rapist Released From Jail for Coronavirus Risk
He’s free to go.
A Massachusetts man with child rape and indecent exposure convictions is being released from jail on account of the risk he faces from the raging coronavirus epidemic. 54-year old Glenn Christie was released from the Massachusetts Treatment Center on Friday.
Christie had been previously released from prison on parole, following his conviction for repeatedly raping a 12-year old boy in the city of Lynn, Massachusetts. He was ordered back to prison after violating the terms of his parole agreement, but now he’s getting out because of the risk he faces as a result of the epidemic.
Christie had been a cellmate with an inmate who died of the coronavirus, and he apparently faces several serious preexisting conditions, according to his lawyers. The man uses a wheelchair, and has hypothyroidism, and several other possible medical conditions such as kidney disease.
In a tweet, Mr. Christie’s lawyer described the man as a “a perfect example of the sort of vulnerable person in need of release.”
Prisons and jail systems across the country- mostly on the east coast- have taken to releasing what they describe as mostly non-violent offenders to safeguard their staff and inmates. New York’s Rikers Island jail recounted releasing 300 misdemeanor offenders who were serving sentences of less than a year. Even though Christie was serving a year in the Massachusetts facility for violating the terms of his parole after initial release from prison, he wouldn’t meet the qualifications for coronavirus release used by other state and municipal corrections systems.
It’s probably safe to say that a man convicted of raping a child isn’t the kind of inmate that the public would want released in the midst of a medical pandemic.
