BATON ROUGE - On Monday, the attorney general's office and other law enforcement agencies announced the arrest of 63 people during a two-month initiative called "Operation Broken Heart."

According to AG Jeff Landry's office, the operation was executed to apprehend those who produce, distribute, receive, and possess child pornography; engage in online enticement of children for sexual purposes; engage in the sex trafficking of children; and travel across state lines or to foreign countries and sexually abuse children.

"Sexual exploitation of kids is gut-wrenching and involves unspeakable things that would shock the conscience of every one," said General Landry. "Operation Broken Heart sends a powerful message to predators across the country – law enforcement will find you and we will protect Louisiana's children."
