SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – In an effort to reduce the demand for victims of human trafficking, the District Attorney’s Office released the names and photographs of five defendants convicted of solicitation in San Bernardino County. Click here to access the photos and more content.
“Our message is simple, and one that should be very clear by now," District Attorney Michael Ramos said. "If you are convicted of purchasing another human being for sex in this county, we are going to share your name and photo with the world.”
There are currently 83 defendants charged with solicitation in various stages of the court process.
20 defendants have had their photos posted since the inception of the Stop-The-John project.
