Ex-NFL Cheerleader Almost Trapped in Sex Trafficking Ring

Stream Fox 17 newscasts LIVE starting with TN Mornings at 5 am and News at 9 pm.

Brittney Cason, a former NFL cheerleader turned sports broadcaster, was not initially suspicious when a talent agent contacted her to cover the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games.



Given my background in sports broadcasting hosting a nationally syndicated motorsports show and working on sports talk radio, it made sense he was recruiting me, she wrote on xojane.com.



After she submitted work samples and auditioned, she was told she had the job. Two weeks before she was set to fly to Sochi, she became suspicious when asked if she had other girlfriends who would be interested in working, as well, and the talent agent offered one of her friends travel documents without even seeing her work.



Cason decided to contact another broadcaster who was already hired. They couldnt verify the agents credentials and contacted the FBI, who told them he was likely recruiting for a sex trafficking ring.



Unfortunately I am not the daughter of Liam Neeson, so I wouldn't have had a happy ending had I gotten on a plane, she wrote.
