13 Vilas County men arrested in sex sting
Thirteen Vilas County men have been arrested in connection with a multi-agency sex sting, Attorney General Brad Schimel announced Thursday.

Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) Human Trafficking Bureau agents, with the aid of local and federal law enforcement, have arrested a total of 25 individuals in stings to arrest sex traffickers, "johns," and child abusers in July and August 2017, Schimel said in a press release.

"The only reason human trafficking exists is because there is a demand for buying sex. Those creating the demand - the johns who buy victims and the pimps who are exploiting them - are not safe to exploit and coerce people in our state," said Attorney General Schimel. "When I was sworn in as attorney general, I put johns on notice. We are coming for you, and for some - we already got you. DOJ's Human Trafficking Bureau's arrests this summer will not be the last."
