BROWN COUNTY, Ohio (WKRC) - A local businessman admitted to sex trafficking crimes.

Thomas Sawyers, who owns an asphalt company in Brown County, pleaded guilty to engaging in corrupt activity and compelling prostitution.

Investigators say he hired women who were heroin addicts and provided money and drugs in exchange for sex.

The prosecutor says it's clear Sawyers knew Brown County chief probation officer Dale Anderson, who was indicted for having sexual contact with a woman who was on probation.

Anderson pleaded guilty in November.
