Seven people have been arrested in a human trafficking case in Florida involving a 15-year-old boy who investigators say was used as a sex slave.
News outlets say that six men and a woman have been arrested. Reports indicate the men introduced the teen to sadomasochism.
Investigators claim a woman the boy knew introduced him to two men after he said he was unhappy with his life at home. The boy left a note for his mother telling her not to try to find him, but she went to the sheriff’s office.
The teen is currently receiving special care designed for human trafficking victims.
The FBI has classified sex trafficking as “modern day slavery” in America. If you have been accused of sex trafficking, the prosecution will stop at nothing to make an example out of you. You could be looking at life in prison and thousands of dollars in fines and fees.
