The South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation announced five arrests during a sex trafficking sting at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Four of the men were from Rapid City and were charged with attempted exploitation or enticement of a minor. The fifth man was from Box Elder and faced the same charges. This operation was part of the nationwide initiative Project Safe Childhood. However, it is unclear if any actual child sex traffickers or victims were found during the operation.

The South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation is once again highlighting its efforts to combat child sex trafficking during the Sturgis Rally, despite the lack of evidence regarding the apprehension of actual child sex traffickers or the discovery of children being sold as sex slaves. Collaborating with various agencies, the operation, which took place from August 4 to August 10, resulted in the arrest of five men as part of a sex trafficking sting. Among them were four individuals from Rapid City: Burton Dave Chief Jr (35 years old) was charged with Attempted Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, while James Halen Dreamer (41 years old), James Peter Fast Horse (45 years old), and Jacob Chinni Wilson (38 years old) faced charges of Attempted Enticement of a Minor Using the Internet. Another arrest was made in the case of Vincent Alberto Barrios (42 years old) from Box Elder, who was also charged with Attempted Enticement of a Minor Using the Internet. If convicted, all five men could face prison sentences ranging from 10 to 30 years. The operation was conducted as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative aimed at combating the widespread issue of child sexual exploitation and abuse [Gary Matthews, “Rally Sex Trafficking Operation Nets Five Individuals,” KBHB Radio, 2023.08.12].

Given the alarming characterization of child sex exploitation and abuse as an “epidemic,” one might expect law enforcement officials to easily identify instances of child sex slavery. However, it seems that South Dakota authorities are only able to apprehend gullible customers rather than actual traffickers or victims..
