This is all well and good for justice, but how much of the public will see now showing how the F.B.I. and Prosecutors work? All the public will see is what went down, not the outcome. You will never see this on CNN stating how the F.B.I. and Prosecutors go to these lengths to put innocent people into jail. I wonder how many SO laws were passed in wake of this farce. The Question that needs to be answered is what about the kids and their family’s that were deported after being found Not Guilty?
The Biggest Sex-Trafficking Bust in FBI History Was Totally Bogus

In the press, it was a “wide-reaching sex-trafficking operation” run by Somali Muslim gangs who forced “girls as young as 12” to sell sex in Minnesota and Tennessee. In reality, the operation—which led to charges against 30 individuals, sex-trafficking convictions for three, and an eight year legal battle—was a fiction crafted by two troubled teenagers, a member of the FBI’s human-trafficking task force, and an array of overzealous officials. An opinion released this week by the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals shows that federal prosecuters had no evidence whatsoever to support their “child sex trafficking conspiracy” case outside the seriously flawed testimony of two teenagers, one of whom had “been diagnosed as insane and was off her medication.”
“We conclude from our careful review of the trial transcript and record that, if the prosecution proved any sex trafficking at all (and we have serious doubts that it did), then at best it proved two separate, unrelated, and dissimilar sex-trafficking conspiracies, involving different defendants, albeit with the same alleged victim, namely Jane Doe 2,” states the 6th Circuit opinion, written by judges Alice M. Batchelder, Sean F. Cox, and Helene N. White.
