Man sentenced to 12 years for human trafficking


A man was sentenced to 12 years in prison on human trafficking charges in Stockton, according to Stockton Police Department

Officer Joseph Silva with the police department said that 26-year-old Jatari Fisher's arrest came in March 2015. The department's vice unit was working an undercover prostitution mission when an undercover officer picked up a 16-year-old prostitute.

The officer realized the girl was a victim of human trafficking, said Silva. Fisher was arrested shortly afterwards and the victim was given medical attention and resources to get out of the lifestyle.
