It’s a horrifying nightmare we can’t ignore: human trafficking. It’s a familiar story: young run-aways kidnapped and forced into a life of sexual slavery, brutalized by their pimps, and treated as criminals by law enforcement.
Not anymore. Attorney General Bill Schuette is cracking down on this tragedy, and for the first time we’re treating these people as the victims they truly are, and not as criminals. Meanwhile, the pimps and abusers are being sent to prison under new a law that helps protect our children from these predators.
This new approach to the fight against human trafficking will bring these victims out of the shadows, and bring an end to the horror of this sickening crime.
