A team of Cincinnati Enquirer journalists spent more than a year in this small Rust Belt city two hours east of Cincinnati to investigate allegations of a sex trafficking ring. The findings corroborate what federal law enforcement agents first alleged four years ago – that a local defense lawyer and former city councilman lured women in with the promise of lenient sentences or money if they would enter a world of sex work. The Enquirer talked to 10 different women who all told similar stories, and who overcame strong fears to do so.
