TULSA - Federal investigators say an online predator sexually exploited more than a dozen Tulsa-area teens and possibly more.
In November, federal agents launched Operation Sunflower in an effort to find child pornographers and others involved in the illegal trade.
After distributing wanted posters, hundreds of suspects were in handcuffs within weeks.
Investigators say so far a total of 13 Tulsa-area teenagers have been identified as victims.
