At an UJA-sponsored conference on Monday, a Georgia attorney told of the case of an 11-year-old girl held in prison for four days after being arrested for prostitution. Her 50-year-old male client was given a $100 fine and let go immediately.

In the U.S., around 300,000 children are reported to enter the sex trade each year, with the average age of females entering the sex trafficking trade at 12-14 years old.
