    I wonder if anyone has researched this further or has knowledge of who was arrested and what the outcome was?

    I am certain young girls or vulnerable women have and continue to be forced into prostitution in that day as such crimes are still with us today. I am a tad suspicious though as the article is basically vague and general. In so many words the article says a name has been given to police and they will announce and arrest once the evidence is collected. Think about that for a minute as one could say that about anyone accused of any crime. If there is a follow up and a politician was implicated or arrested I would love to read about it though.
