Charlie Butts - OneNewsNow

The FBI, joining with local authorities in "Operation Cross Country," has rescued dozens of child prostitutes during weekend roundups.

A total of 45 teenage prostitutes, ranging in age from 13 to 17, are now in custody, as are 50 alleged pimps. The goal of the three-night initiative, according to FBI deputy assistant director Daniel Roberts, was to recover children. "We consider them the child victims of prostitution," he told Associated Press.
