CT: State had 201 referrals for sex trafficking of minors in 2016, amid a ‘lucrative market’
Register Citizen – February 04, 2017
This criminal abuse of children remains a problem in the state to this day, and data show it may be on the rise. Last year, the Connecticut Department of Children and Families received the highest number of referrals of potential victims of domestic minor sex trafficking since the agency started documenting the number of referrals in 2008, according to Tammy Sneed, who directs the Human Anti-trafficking Response Team at DCF.
