"South Dakota leads nation with most life terms for trafficking"

Synopsis: “Since 2009, prosecutions through the office of Brendan Johnson, U.S. attorney for South Dakota, have put three traffickers in prison for life—the most of any federal district.Johnson said the business and population growth in the Bakken oilfields doesn’t appear to have had much direct effect on trafficking in South Dakota, where the problem exists but has been more home-grown. But prosecutors have heard several victims from South Dakota say they were brought to North Dakota.” Click here to access the orginal article.
