9. Sex Trafficking in Ohio
The New York Times published an article earlier this month about three pastors who exploited and sexually abused teenage girls in Ohio. The three men, Kenneth Butler, Anthony J. Haynes, and Cordell Jenkins were charged with conspiracy for child sex trafficking, according to the article, and the abusing started back in 2014. The three men sexually abused three teenage girls and gave them money for their silence. They even recorded the abuse with their phones, and these horrific actions took place from 2014 to the mid-2017.
