The conviction of a Sioux Falls man earlier this week on several counts of sex trafficking was the result of a major cooperative law enforcement effort. 45 year old Mohammed Sharif Alaboudi was sentenced to four life terms in federal court.

South Dakota US Attorney Brendan Johnson says this conviction does not end the problem…

 

The investigation was through the combined efforts of Sioux Falls Police, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the FBI and the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation.

Johnson says we will see more of that in the future…

 

Johnson says there has been a change in how law enforcement looks at sex crimes…

 

The case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a national initiative started in 2006 by the US Department of Justice.
