In April 2023, eight men were arrested on child solicitation charges in law enforcement operations in Brown and Johnson counties. The operation targeted “those that would solicit minors and then go forward with those acts.” A detective in Brown County said those arrested had shown up at a designated meeting location prepared to sexually abuse minors. According to the Brown County Sheriff’s Department, eight men were arrested in Brown County as a result of the operation. The men were charged with Level 5 felony child solicitation, and one of the arrestees was a convicted sex offender. In addition, one man was charged with Level 6 felony possession of methamphetamine.
