Most child sexual abuse offenders are relatives and acquaintances of victims’ families. Sexual offenders take advantage of naive children to sexually abuse them because children are not wary of their relatives or of people they know.

Victims, mostly females are lured into a job interview, or a promising relationship with a man, and then sold off into sex slavery. The victim is often held captive and unable to have any freedom or say in what they do; it is modern day slavery. One of the main reasons this happens is because prostitution is illegal virtually everywhere in the U.S, and crooks and corrupt minded people see the money opportunity available with prostitution, however, it must be done in an illegal way.
