“Prostitution is not a victimless crime.  These women are victims.  Victims of their circumstances and what has lead them to where they are.  And, as our investigators have learned, narcotics and prostitution go hand in hand” said Sheriff William Earl Hilton.  “We will continue to monitor these internet sites as part of our ongoing enforcement efforts.  I want to commend our Metro Division for their continued diligence in helping keep our parish safe.”
