Human Trafficking of Children

Human Trafficking of Children

This Federal sting took three days involving 40 cities in the USA. It is part of the Innocence Lost National Initiative, which was formed in June, 2003. There are 39 of these projects across the country. At this time 1260 children have been rescued. The initiative has resulted in 438 indictments, 625 convictions, 153 criminal enterprises have been disrupted with 58 have been successfully dismantled. A typical sentence is 25 years to life.

That seems a perfect name to me as you can not give innocence back to an abused child. The bulk of the children rescued at this point were primarily in Seattle, Tacoma, Washington, and Sacramento. The largest number of arrests occurred in Detroit.
