Sex trafficking survivor says police were among hundreds of abusers

She survived years of abuse and exploitation at the hands of sex traffickers and now she’s telling her story.

Jessa Dillow-Crisp told an audience at the Colorado State Capitol, during Human Trafficking Awareness and Advocacy Day, that her victimization began when she was a child.

"I was a little girl and was sexually abused by family members," she said. "I had to pose for pornographers and was sold to countless men on a daily basis."

The young woman said she was trafficked domestically in Canada, where she grew up, and in the United States.

She couldn't go to police because they were some of her abusers.

"There was gang raping," she said. "The police officer who handcuffed me and raped me, told me I would be put in jail if I opened my voice."

Dillow-Crisp said it got worse. Full story...
