Manipulated: Child Sex Trafficking in Los Angeles County
In Los Angeles County, girls, as young as 11 or 12 are being bought and sold on the streets as prostitutes. These young girls are being manipulated by pimps and put on the streets to make money. A trafficker can make over $140,000 annually off of one girl and most have more than one girl in their stable. MANIPULATED is a gritty and real look at this issue that is not just occurring "over there."
