18 arrested in 'Innocent Justice' child abuse offender roundup
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas – April was National Child Abuse and Sexual assault Awareness Month.
In recognition of the proclamation, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Records and Warrants Division, Homeland Security, SWAT and the U.S. Marshal Service combined their efforts to target people wanted for various crimes against children in Montgomery County.
"Our children should be the most protected members of our community. We each have a duty to identify and report anyone who would do them harm," Montgomery County Sheriff Rand Henderson said.
As a result of the efforts, 18 people were arrested.
Authorities called the project, "Innocent Justice."
Henderson thanked his staff and the other agencies for taking the dangerous offenders out of the community.
