Your prayers worked! Many men were held responsible for their actions; both traffickers and the buyers were arrested in troves during the Super Bowl.
11 traffickers were arrested. Many johns (the buyers) were also arrested including 2 Houston ISD employees, 2 firefighters, and a well known sports agent, Randal Hendricks. One man even had his 4 year old child with him in his car while he solicited an undercover female officer.
Full article and pictures of men arrested can be found here. Even though the Super Bowl is over, there is much work to be done! Read below to get involved!
