The following corrections & clarifications have been published on stories produced by USA TODAY's newsroom:

January 2022

News: An earlier version of this story misquoted President Joe Biden's comment on Ukraine. Biden said he believes that Putin will "move in" on Ukraine.

News: An earlier version of this story misstated the rank of a former New Orleans Police Department member who is now on death row. He was a police officer.

News: An earlier version of this story misrepresented a percentage. The U.S. National Human Trafficking Hotline saw a nearly 20% increase in the number of victims and survivors directly contacting the hotline from 2018 to 2019.
