The Center for Court Innovation has released the OJJDP-sponsored “Youth Involvement in the Sex Trade: A National Study.” This report examines a multi-site study of youth involvement in the commercial sex trade across six sites: Atlantic City, NJ; Bay Area (San Francisco/Oakland), CA; Chicago, IL; Dallas, TX; Las Vegas, NV; and Miami, FL. The report presents findings from nearly 1,000 youth interviews, arrest patterns and prosecution and recidivism outcomes for these youth, and findings from interviews with service providers and police officers.
