State Looks To Do More To Stop Human Trafficking

Ohio Governor John Kasich says he'll back further legislation this session bolstering the state's legal crackdown on human trafficking.

Kasich spoke at an awareness event this morning.


Kasich says he'll work again with Democratic State Representative Teresa Fedor, who sponsored a bill the governor signed into law last year that increased penalties and created a fund to help human trafficking victims. Those victims often are prostituted or pushed to work against their will in sweatshop-type jobs. Some are girls as young as 11 years of age.
