New study looks at child sex trafficking in America

SAN ANTONIO -Stacy Jewell Lewis knows firsthand about child sex trafficking.

She’s now an advocate for child sex trafficking laws, but 10 years ago, she was a victim, forced into prostitution by strangers who tracked her down in her neighborhood.

“They had followed me for quite some time and knew my pattern so they knew where I lived and threatened my family if I did not go,” she said. “When I was told they knew what street I lived on and had a child, it felt more real to me than ever before.”

Lewis now helps others through Shared Hope International. The group analyzes and pushes for strengthening of sex trade laws.
