The Onondaga County Sheriff's Office released more details from a recent prostitution sting in Salina that led to eight men being arrested including the former Dean of the Whitman School at Syracuse University. The sting was a joint investigation with the State Police. Sheriff Gene Conway was publicly criticized for withholding further details on the investigation. However, he said the delay was necessary because the sting was compromised.

  Human trafficking sounds like a terrifying crime and few Central New Yorkers are aware that it’s happening in this area. The League of Women Voters hosted a panel discussion Tuesday night in Syracuse to try to raise awareness.
