    Canada - How a teenager descended from straight `A`student to the sex trade

    July 21, 2012

    snipped...Fifteen-year-old Michelle was a responsible, straight A student who spent most nights at home with her parents and younger siblings and the rest of her free time working at Tim Hortons.

    But her life drastically changed when a Friday night out with a friend turned into a nightmarish trip into the sex trade.

    There's always some opportunistic predators out there waiting to suck kids into ugliness and harms way for their own benefit.

    An innocent FB inquiry and this poor girl winds up in he**.

    People don't believe this happens. This young woman is a living testament.

    Besides the cell phone with the same number, the other thing that bothers me about this story is she was a good student, never went out, etc. Did her parents not notice anything wrong? Did she suddenly quit school? Did she run away from home and lived on the streets? She was 15! Wouldn't her parents have called the cops?

    NT- I agree. Many things with this story don't sit right with me...her mom said "get help or else". WTH? She was 15!!! How about locking her in her room and not letting her go out? She had already gone to the police once, her mom should've realized this "getting help" was beyond the teenager.


    RIP McStays

    the way I read it, she was 20 & had moved back home when her mother said that ... and this was after her parents got ripped off for $20,000

    ETA: and it looks to me that it was her mother's ultimatum that finally got her out of 5 years of prostitution

    Why didn't the parents intervene when she was 15?
