Sheriff Grady Judd Will Brief Media This Morning On Recent Human Trafficking & Prostitution Sting

Sheriff Grady Judd will brief the media at 10:00 a.m. this morning (Thursday, February 16, 2023) at the PCSO Sheriff’s Operations Center, 1891 Jim Keene Blvd in Winter Haven, about a seven-day-long multi-agency undercover operation focused on human trafficking, during which 213 arrests were made of suspects who solicited prostitutes and those who offered to commit prostitution, and other suspects who profited from or aided & abetted prostitution.

He will be joined by detectives and representatives from state and local law enforcement agencies, as well as social services organizations who offered help for human trafficking victims. There were 24 potential victims rescued during this operation – and of those, six were in the country illegally from Cuba. Some of the victims told detectives they were forced into prostitution to pay the people who smuggled them into the United States
