Sex Trafficking

Sex Trafficking occurs when a person (trafficker) forces another person (victim) into commercial sex  for financial gain.  In the United States, minors under 18 years of age are considered to be a victim of sex trafficking regardless of the use of force, fraud or coercion.  Traffickers target victims, often building trust, before using violence, threats, lies, false promises, debt bondage or other forms of control and manipulation to keep victims involved in the sex industry.
