Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Illegal Workers Found at Ohio Egg Farm

Five indicted on forced labor related charges
 
CLEVELAND (AP) - Federal authorities have indicted five people on charges related to allegations of illegally bringing teenagers from Guatemala and forcing them to work long hours with little pay at central Ohio egg farms.
 
An indictment unsealed Thursday in Cleveland accuses some defendants of charging the teens thousands of dollars to come to the U.S., then forcing them to work 12-hour days on farms near Marion. The indictment says teens had to give the defendants their paychecks and would receive little money in return to buy food and necessities while being housed in dilapidated trailers.
 
The charges include labor-trafficking conspiracy, forced labor, witness tampering and harboring illegal aliens. The illegal activity in the indictment allegedly occurred in 2014.
 
It wasn't immediately clear whether the defendants were in custody or have attorneys.
