SC prosecutor to release human trafficking plan

Associated Press

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina's top prosecutor is set to release a plan on how the state will address the problem of human trafficking.

Attorney General Alan Wilson holds a news conference Thursday to discuss the efforts of the state's Human Trafficking Task Force.

State legislators passed a measure in 2012 intended to strengthen South Carolina's anti-human-trafficking laws. The law also created the taskforce, which is chaired by Wilson's office.

For more than a year, the panel has been reviewing how other states address human trafficking and evaluating which plans might work best for South Carolina.
