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 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.
