Justice For Them

MAURY COUNTY, Tenn. — An undercover operation conducted by federal, state and local agencies in Spring Hill led to the arrests of eighteen men accused of seeking “illicit sex” from juveniles.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said authorities placed several decoy advertisements on websites known to be linked to prostitution and commercial sex cases, as part of a two-day investigation that began July 8.5-year-old wounded after drive-by shooting in Nashville neighborhood.
