Ohio’s attorney general Dave Yost announced the arrests on Monday and shared photos of the 14 defendants on Twitter.
The operation, carried out by the Liberty County Police Department and other task forces, was aimed at reducing the demand for prostitution and therefore human trafficking.
‘John stings discourage those who want to buy sex – reducing the demand for human trafficking – and a reminder that these crimes are more common and closer to home than you think,’ Yost said in a statement.
The location of the street, Liberty Township as well as other details of the arrest were not disclosed on Monday.
O’Nora has been refereeing MLB games since 2000 and has been regularly selected for the sport’s most glamorous missions, including three All-Star Games, six-part playoff series, a league championship series, and the 2012 World Series.
He has reportedly lived on the opposite side of the state in Austintown since 2003.
