Year over year, the number of human trafficking cases in Montana continues to climb, but thankfully the number of victims rescued is climbing too. In 2014, there weren’t any human trafficking cases in Montana, but Attorney General Tim Fox says there was a substantial increase in cases last year.
“We just finished the tabulations for the year 2016, with respect to a number of human trafficking cases that were handled here in Montana, said Fox. “The total cases went up 100 percent from 2015. We had 14 human trafficking cases that were opened.”
