In September 2017, eight men were arrested in a reverse sting focusing on those seeking to buy sex with minors.  The operation was conducted by the Brown County Sheriff’s Department, whose  undercover investigators acted as 16-year-old girls offering to trade sex for money or drugs.  The men were charged with agreeing to hire a person under 18 for prostitution. A criminal complaint alleges they responded to an advertisement law enforcement posted on Backpage.com and arrived at an undercover location at a residence in Brown County. The identities of the men were publicly released.
