Five Men Accused of Trafficking 14-year-old Girl Across States; Arrested in Missouri During Traffic Stop

On Monday, five men were taken into custody in Missouri on suspicion of trafficking a girl who was 14 years old from the state of Indiana to the state of California. According to Macon County Prosecutor Joshua Meisner, the males stood before the Macon County Circuit Court and were charged with putting the well-being of a kid in jeopardy.

Because the investigation is still ongoing, these charges may be altered. Several law enforcement agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, are also participating. At this point, that is what they are being charged within our county, but it is too early for me to tell how all of that is going to play out.
