A Stockton man who was arrested in March for human trafficking took a sentence 12 years in prison.

On March 25, the Stockton Police Department’s Vice Unit was working an undercover prostitution mission in an effort to combat human trafficking in the city. An undercover officer picked up a 16-year-old prostitute and quickly realized the girl was a victim of human trafficking.

The suspect, 26-year-old Jatari Fisher, was arrested shortly after. The victim in the case was given medical attention and resources to help her get out of the lifestyle.

In collaboration with San Jaoquin County Deputy District Attorney Elton Grau, Fisher took a 12-year sentence.
