Victims include adults and children of all genders and sexual orientations, including people who are foreign nationals or native citizens. Anyone can be a victim.

The average age that children enter the commercial sex trade in the U.S. is 12-14 years and it is estimated that children who move to live on the streets are approached for sex trafficking within 2 days of living on the streets. Trafficking may involve individuals being transported across domestic or international borders but does not require crossing a border. Restraint, abuse and physical force may also be involved but again are not required to define human trafficking. Wh...

Publication date: Available online 17 February 2020Source: Journal of Forensic and Legal MedicineAuthor(s): Roger W.
