    Oregon Child Sex Ring Uncovered: “They’re Worth $5000 A Night”

    Investigators in Oregon have discovered a massive child sex ring in which children were sold as sex slaves to high ranking pedophiles for as much as $5,000 a night.

    Curry County residents Genevieve Wilson and Jackalene Antunes say they are working to help child victims of human trafficking in Southern Oregon, with very little help from the government.

    “There’s not as much money in drugs anymore as there is in human trafficking. They take a young child and on a good night, can make $3,000 to $5,000.”

    The young kids are often befriended by a man — although incidences involving women exist, as well — who eventually bring them in under their control.

    They reassure a child’s insecurities, drive a wedge between them and friends and family, buy them clothes and ultimately bring them into the underworld of illegal sex trafficking. They keep the children there using threats and abuse.

    “I moved her way out in the country or to another city,” one trafficker admitted on the Rebecca Bender Initiative website, where a Grants Pass trafficking victim is trying to educate people about the problem.

    “At first, I felt excited to be in a new adventure, a new town,” his survivor said. “After a while, I felt I had no one to turn to, nowhere to go.”

    Woman admits trapping missing teen in 'life of sexual slavery'

    HACKENSACK - A woman who went by the nickname "China White" pleaded guilty Wednesday to prostituting a 16-year-old girl -- reported missing from Brooklyn -- in North Jersey motels, authorities said.
    Jessica Copeland, 29, of Newark, pleaded guilty in Bergen County Superior Court to second-degree facilitating human trafficking, according to N.J. Attorney General Christopher S. Porrino.
    Copeland acted as a boss over prostitutes in a ring, which offered escort services and displayed nude or semi-nude photos of young women on websites such as Backpage.com, Porrino said.

    The teenage victim appeared on a Backpage.com sex ad with her breasts exposed, Porrino said.
    "This defendant threatened a 16-year-old girl with violence to keep her trapped in a hellish life of sexual slavery," Porrino said in a statement.

    Such a sad story. The link keeps putting it in video mode...
    U.S. and Mexican officials both point to a town in central Mexico that for years has been a major source of human trafficking rings and a place where victims are taken before being eventually forced into prostitution. The town is called Tenancingo.

    Even though it has a population of about 13,000 it has an oversized reputation when it comes to prostitution and pimping, says Susan Coppedge, who is now the U.S. State Department's Ambassador at Large to Combat Human trafficking, and previously worked at the U.S. Attorney's office in Atlanta.


    "That's what the town does. That is their industry," Coppedge says. "And yet in smaller, rural communities the young girls don't have any idea that this is what the town's reputation is, so they are not suspicious of the men who come from there. They think they have got a great future with this person. They think they love and it is the same story of recruitment every time."

    When she was 12 she was targeted by a trafficker who lured her away using kind words and a fast car.

    To start, here is a snip of Marc Klaas' website:

    It is estimated that 14,500–17,500 individuals are trafficked into the U.S. each year. However, these numbers pale by comparison to the U.S. citizen victims of Human Sex Trafficking.

    * Between 1.6 and 2.8 million children run away annually in the U.S., half of which are girls.
    * Within 48 hours of hitting the streets, one third of these children are lured or recruited into the underground world of prostitution or pornography.
    * The average age at which girls first become victims of prostitution is 12-14.
    * For boys, the entry age is 11-13.
    * Approximately 55% of street girls engage in formal prostitution.
    * Of the girls engaged in formal prostitution, 75% work for a pimp.
    * It is estimated that as many as 300,000 American children are working as prostitutes in the U.S.A.
    * Many of these children are missing: many have run away or are throwaway children.

    We have learned that the U.S.A. is as much a supply country as it is a demand country for human trafficking. In fact, we are supplying much of our own demand. President George W. Bush has committed the United States Government to lead in combating the serious 21st century challenge of Human Trafficking. The best way to lead is always by example. The best example that the U.S.A. can present to its own citizens and the world at large is to acknowledge the extent that human sex trafficking has affected our own society, and then repair the damage. We must seek legislative solutions and change society’s perception. We must impact the victim’s mindset as we rescue and recover them. Finally, we must identify and criminalize the traffickers.

    Smart speaks on human trafficking

    If community awareness can lead to tips to prevent crimes against individuals, it can help “eradicate human trafficking.”

    That’s why Elizabeth Smart and the Fight to End Exploitation were at Carthage College on Friday.
    Smart, an American child safety activist and contributor for ABC News, started a conversation with several hundred members of the local community about human trafficking.


    It was a discussion framed by the life experiences of Smart, one of the nation’s most high-profile child kidnapping victims in recent memory. She has lent her support and celebrity to help spotlight the dangers of human trafficking and how to begin fighting it.
    The challenge can seem “overwhelming,” Smart said, but it has to start somewhere.

    North Carolina teen missing for 2 months found during prostitution sting in Tennessee

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Parents reported their teenage daughter missing two months ago in North Carolina, and now they’ve been reunited with the girl after she was found during a prostitution sting in Tennessee.

    According to WLOS, police arrested three suspects during the operation: 27-year-old Timothy King, 20-year-old Jesse McMinn and 20-year-old Tabitha Banks.

    Deputies from Tennessee’s Knox County made the discovery after responding to an ad on the Backpage.com website. An undercover deputy met the suspects at a Holiday Inn after making an appointment for the “two girl special.”
    Investigators found the missing underage teen and took her to a juvenile detention center to be reunited with her family.

    Her parents reported her missing two months ago and later told authorities that she’d run away.

    King is charged with human trafficking. Banks and McMinn face prostitution charges.

    Thank goodness there are people out there rescuing the victims of HT, but especially the children, 3 months old wth?!

    Agents report the 3-month-old girl was rescued along with a 5-year-old girl from a home in Denver after a friend of the children’s family, offered an undercover officer sex with the two young girls in exchange for $600. The FBI is working with Child Protective Services to conduct a forensic interview and secure safe placement of the children, the report states. The subject was placed under arrest.
