In March of 2019, the Cincinnati Enquirer published the results of a yearlong investigation into a former Portsmouth, OH city councilman.
In September of that year, the Enquirer followed up with a second article about sex trafficking in that community. Allegations of sex trafficking now embroil other city officials, including in Portsmouth's probation office. These developments have been spurred by more courageous victims and survivors willing to testify, on the record, that they have endured the abuse of what one described as a "good ol' boys network." Public figures in Ohio such as State Attorney General Dave Yost and U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown have weighed in on this developing case.
