Sex Trafficking: Big Business and Big Problem in Kansas

Sex-trafficking is big business and it's become a big problem in Kansas. Every day, women and children are held captive - usually through coercion - and forced into prostitution. It happens at truck stops, motels and dozens of other places. While this illegal business is often called human trafficking, it's actually a form of human slavery, where - for many - the only escape is death. Prosecuting those who profit from this trade is a top priority for Barry Grissom, the U.S. Attorney for Kansas. KPR's J. Schafer recently spoke to him about the extent of the problem in Kansas.

That's Barry Grissom, the U.S. Attorney for Kansas. He was speaking with KPR's J. Schafer.

Be sure to read this excellent report about human trafficking in the Topeka Capital-Journal.
