For prosecutors handling sex-trafficking cases around the country, the charges against Jeffrey Epstein are a welcome relief. The indictment alleges that Epstein worked with several employees and associates to entice girls as young as 14 to come to his homes in New York and Florida to perform sex acts in exchange for money. The charges were especially welcome in light of reports that former Miami U. Attorney Alex Acosta, now the U. Secretary of Labor, had let Epstein off easy in with a lenient plea deal , and then failed to notify the victims as required by law. Sex trafficking is a heinous crime. Predators use vulnerable victims, often children, as commodities for profit or pleasure. One would think that in light of the cruel facts of such cases, prosecutors would find convictions easy to obtain.

Victims of sex trafficking acquire adverse physical and psychological health conditions and social disadvantages. Thus, sex trafficking is a critical health issue with broader social implications that requires both medical and legal attention. Healthcare professionals can work to improve the screening, identification, and assistance of victims of sex trafficking in a clinical setting and help these women and girls access legal and social services.

When a teenage girl staying in a safe house for sex-trafficking victims recently ran from a yoga studio, another girl went after her. Both girls returned to the studio and to the safe house that is intended as a refuge for Northeast Ohio teens who often are prone to running. So far, 14 girls have stayed at the 5,square-foot safe house, with the exact location kept under wraps for safety reasons. Both facilities assist teenage girls who have been targeted — often through social media — and forced to sell their bodies. RAHAB, though, is facing funding challenges that are limiting the number of girls who can be housed at the safe house. The next stop was a great room with a long, wooden table where the teens and RAHAB staff share meals and a large kitchen where they cook together. The great room featured a tall Christmas tree donated to the agency and decorated by the girls who have asked where the presents are. The second floor has six bedrooms for the girls — most with multiple beds — and three bathrooms.
This online training consists of two parts. Part 1 covers key definitions and concepts related to commercial sexual exploitation and sex trafficking, factors that can place young people at higher risk for sex trafficking, and implications for youth education and support service needs and health outcomes. Part 2 delves into the emerging trend of youth trafficking their peers; explores the impact of sex trafficking on young people; and discusses ways adults can incorporate sex trafficking awareness, prevention, and intervention strategies into youth programs. By the end of the course, you should be able to identify signs of potential sexual exploitation and trafficking situations that may be affecting youth in your community including peer-to-peer exploitation, and describe practical steps for providing sexually exploited and trafficked youth and survivors with appropriate support and service referrals without inflicting further traumatization.
