CHILD SEX RINGS SPIKE DURING SUPER BOWL WEEK
DALLAS (2/1/11)–Texas law enforcement agents will be hunting for a little-known crime during this week’sSuper Bowl festivities in metropolitan Dallas: child sex rings.

His office, working closely with the FBI, is bringing in at least a dozen extra agents from Austin and other cities to monitor and combat cases of trafficking in underage prostitutes during Super Bowl XLV in Arlington, Texas, he says.
“The Super Bowl is the greatest show on Earth, but it also has an ugly underbelly,” Abbott says. “It’s commonly known as the single largest human trafficking incident in the United States.”
