    What they mean by that is they have picked up 33 johns and 4 prostitutes in sting operations. It doesn't really have anything to do with sex trafficking, it is just regular prostitution with different words applied.

    If you read the story the girls "rescued" were actually youths who were found in areas frequented by "high risk" (whatever that means - I assume runaways and kids into drugs) youths. Most of them probably were not involved in prostitution at all, more likely it was drugs and living on the street.

    There did not appear to be a connection between the johns and the girls. Rather, the johns were picked up incidently while the police were sweeping these areas for runaways.

    That would be why no sex traffickers were arrested - the two groups of people mentioned in the story likely had nothing to do with each other. The men arrested probably were dealing with adult prostitutes, not the kids.

    That is the problem with stories like this. While the police were sweeping downtown for runaways, in the course of doing that they picked up other people for prostitution related offences. Then the whole lot are conflated in newspaper reports as if they are connected when they are not.

    Forced into sex trafficking while trying to become a super model

    "Airica Kraehmer was trafficked while pursuing a career in modeling and never thought she would end up a victim.

    Kraehmer was young and beautiful but also trusting.

    She said she trusted the wrong people and instead of a world of glitz and glamour, she ended up going through a horrific ordeal that would leave her changed forever.

    It all started when a 20-year-old Kraehmer moved from the quiet beauty of Tennessee to the busy streets of New York City chasing her dream of becoming a model..."
