A 17-year-old Alabama girl forced into prostitution was rescued and three pimps arrested during a week-long, nationwide sex-trafficking operation, the FBI announced Monday.

Also in North Alabama, which stretches from Birmingham to Huntsville, lawmen rescued a six-week old baby and identified 14 adult women, some of who had been forced into prostitution since they were juveniles.

“Sex trafficking of children is one of the most violent and unconscionable crimes committed in this country,” said Richard D. Schwein Jr., special agent in charge of the FBI’s Birmingham division. “There are few law enforcement missions more important than protecting our nation’s children.”

Operation Cross County VIII was carried out in 106 cities across 54 FBI field divisions. Lawmen recovered 168 children who were being victimized through prostitution, and arrested 281 pimps on state and federal charges.
