Children as young as sixth-graders are being recruited in schools to become the pawns of sex traffickers, one victim says.
Parents send their children to school and the last thing they think they will have to worry about is their son or daughter being recruited by a sex trafficker.

News 6 Investigator Eryka Washington spoke with one victim who shares her story of survival.
"We were trapped there like slaves," Katarina Rosenblatt told Washington.
Rosenblatt was forced to have sex with men at the age of 14.
