Sex Trafficking – Closer to Your Neighborhood than You Think

In Child Sex Trafficking, Forced Prostitution, Human Trafficking, Sex Trafficking on January 28, 2013 at 1:19 pm

She was just 14 years old, barely a teenager, who had run away from home and was in desperate need of support, food and a place to sleep.

She was approached by a man who offered to take her in, give her a hot meal, a roof over her head and perhaps, a shoulder to cry on. She didn’t know that this man’s offer would come with such a price.

At her most vulnerable, this young girl was lured into the vile world of sexual slavery, enduring unconscionable horrors, night after night, for weeks and then months as she was prostituted for profit by the MS-13 gang.   She was plied with drugs and alcohol, sedating her through the repeated and often brutal sexual encounters she suffered at the hands of her “clients” and the men who trafficked her throughout Washington, D.C., Maryland and Northern Virginia.
