Sex Trafficking in Indiana
The Indiana Attorney General's Office recently published the 2016 Indiana State Report on Human Trafficking . Of the 178 youth (younger than 21 years old) that used the Indiana Victims Assistance Program (ITVAP), 142 were sex trafficking cases. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for children to be trafficked for many years before they are recovered and served. In Indiana, victims were as young as 7 when first trafficked.
