Sex Trafficking is a form of modern day slavery and occurs when a trafficker uses force, threats, fraud, manipulation, lies, and violence to engage a man, woman or child in a commercial sex act. Many victims are lured in by their trafficker and don’t realize they are trapped until it is too late. Often goods such as money, drugs, a place to sleep, food, or clothing are exchanged. The victim may compromise their safety in order to meet their basic needs including a need for affection and acceptance. Under U.S. federal law, any minor under the age of 18 years induced into commercial sex is a victim of sex trafficking—regardless of whether or not the trafficker used force, fraud, or coercion.
