Five Marquette area men are being charged with sexual crimes against children in Marquette as a result of a multi-agency Human Trafficking sting operation last Thursday.

At a press conference yesterday, Marquette County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Andy Griffin said a similar operation last Friday in Menominee County resulted in the arrest of 33-year-old Jeremy Bertrand. Griffin said Menominee County Prosecutor Jeffrey Rogg is charging Bertrand with Child Sexually Abusive Activity, Using a Computer to Commit a Felony and Accosting a Child for Immoral Purposes.
