"An 87-count indictment filed against two men accused of pimping teen runaways could mark the beginning of a lengthy Phoenix sex-crimes investigation as detectives interview more prostitutes and target additional child predators. Police announced the arrests of Daniel Cortez and Jonquell Jones earlier this week, underscoring the ongoing struggle to curb prostitution, pornography and other sexual exploitation of children in the Valley."


"Bray said investigators believe the ages of child prostitutes are going down, and more girls as young as middle-school age are being coerced by pimps to have sex for money. The average age a girl enters prostitution in the U.S. is 13 years old, according to the Department of Justice."

Read that last sentence again, everyone. That is shameful.
