There were seven reported cases of human trafficking in Huron County over the past year.
Three of these qualified as full-blown trafficking; four as priming. Five of the victims were girls under 17.
Let that sink in: someone from your high school is being victimized as a sex slave. Someone from your high school is a perpetrator in a human-trafficking network.
It starts with finding a victim: anyone who’s vulnerable will do. A freshman who’s out partying for the first time and forgot to guard their drink, or stays later than the crew they arrived with. A girl uncomfortable in her new body, desperate to be told she’s beautiful.
