  • Define child sex trade and the scope of the problem

    The issues affecting victims and their families of child trade.

    The process a child sex trade victim goes through when seeking compensation and restitution from his or her assailant

    Factors that may prevent individuals from reporting and prosecuting child sex trade

    The primary elements and myths associated with child sex trade
  • Child sex tourism is the commercial sexual exploitation of children by men or women who travel from one place to another, usually from a
    richer country to a poorer less-developed country, to engage in sexual acts with children.
  • According to some reports, Americans make up 38 percent of all sex tourists in Cambodia and 80 percent in Costa Rica.

    The majority of American victims of commercial sexual exploitation tend to be runaway or thrown away youths who live on the streets who become victims of prostitution.

    It is not only the girls on the streets who are affected—for boys and transgender youth, the average age of entry into prostitution is eleven to thirteen years.

    In many developing countries the authorities decline to take any action because of the economic benefit to the country.

    Child sex tourism is a dynamic and ever-shifting problem—it occurs where the right circumstances combine. When one country accelerates action on the issue, it may spread elsewhere
  • The issues affecting victims and their families of child sex trade
  • Issues

    Human and social costs of trafficking include:
    human rights violations
    social breakdown,
    organized crime,
    depriving countries of human capital
    public health problems,
    erosion of governmental authority.
    Each victim is manipulated through the act or threat of violence.
    Victims live in constant fear
    Each victim lives in a situation outside the rules of law.
    Few children in this situation are able to develop new relationships with peers or adults other than the person who is victimizing them.
  • The process a child sex trade victim goes through when seeking compensation and restitution from his or her assailant
  • Crime victims’ compensation is available for victims of human trafficking ; however, participating in the conduct and, failing to report the crime within 72 hours and to file a claim within two years (absent a finding of good cause), or failing to cooperate with law enforcement could prevent the victims from receiving compensation.

    Minors are not statutorily immune from prosecution for prostitution and may face barriers to treatment and victims’ compensation to fund their recovery.

    buyers of commercial sex acts may claim mistake of age in offenses against older minors, shifting the burden to prosecutors to obtain meaningful penalties.



  • Arizona law provides substantial penalties for sex trafficking and gives law enforcement critical investigative tools to pursue demand.

    Child victim-witnesses have limited protections in the trial process.

    Minors under 15 may be permitted to testify via closed-circuit television and the “rape shield” law is limited to victims of sexual offenses, leaving testifying victims of sex trafficking unprotected from the trauma of cross-examination at the trials of their traffickers.

  • Factors that may prevent individuals from reporting and prosecuting human trafficking

  • Fear-The child victim may believe that disclosing the crime will only make things worse. For example, sexual abuse victims may fear that the abuser will retaliate against them or their families,

    Shame: Fear of others’ reactions is a leading reason that child victims delay getting help for victimization. Youth victims may feel responsible for not preventing their victimization and think others will blame them, too. They may feel ashamed about what happened and fear that others will look down on them.

    Lack of awareness: Child victims of human trafficking may not be aware that a crime has occurred or that anyone could help.

    Lack of cooperation by local authorities-collection of evidence and testimony depends on the cooperation of the local police agencies. Differences in language, customs, and attitude toward commercial sexual exploitation of children may lead to a lack of cooperation by local authorities.

    In many developing countries the authorities decline to take any action because of the economic benefit to the country.
