The trafficking of children and woman into prostitution, live-sex shows and pornography is on the rise in metropolitan areas of Tennessee and Georgia, officials say.
"When I thought of [human] trafficking, I thought of India ... or if it was being done in the U.S., it's with people brought over the borders," said Jerry Redman, director of Second Life, a Chattanooga-based organization that targets human trafficking. "But it's going on here [too]."
