JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- Janesville police say they are launching a crackdown on online sex trafficking following the arrest of two people accused of forcing a 16-year-old runaway into prostitution.
Court documents say the man acting as the girl's pimp posted notices online.
The Janesville Gazette reports police plan to contact women advertising online and offer to connect them with social services that can help them get out of prostitution.
Deputy Chief Dan Davis says if the offers of help don't make a difference, arrests could follow.
Davis and Rock County District Attorney David O'Leary also say they take a more aggressive approach in any cases involving juveniles.
