Transcript

After last week's sentencing, San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis said the case was "a tragic reminder that human trafficking exists and is on the rise in San Diego County."

An effort is now underway to determine just how much human trafficking is occurring in San Diego, or moving through our area.
