Several Arrested in Idaho Child Sex Abuse Investigation

Several people have been arrested as part of an investigation into child sex abuse in Idaho, KIVI-TV reports.

Officials say that nine people were arrested in the investigation, which Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden calls “the results of a joint operation that targeted child sexual abuse in the Treasure Valley over the weekend.”

The operation was a cooperative effort between the Idaho State Police, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Idaho, the Ada County Prosecutor’s Office, the Meridian Police Department, and the Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit.

Of the nine arrested, five face prosecution for state charges and four have been referred for federal charges.
