YouthCare's program for sexually exploited youth received referrals for 185 girls and boys 16 and under in the last year alone. That's just here in Seattle, and that's only the tiny percentage of victims who connected with services!
Those are real kids (as young as 11), not unreliable studies, and 119 of them received YouthCare's help.
SPD is getting better at not actually arresting underage trafficking victims they pick up for prostitution, which is why juvenile court and law enforcement counted for 116 of those referrals with such a low "arrest" rate.
Prostitution is not a victimless crime of adults, and the girls and boys getting support from YouthCare's programs are clear evidence of that fact.
