YWCA panel puts spotlight on sex trafficking in Connecticut

Law enforcement wouldn’t engage, Joette Katz remembered. It had taken weeks to even find the girl, and she was about to be sold to some creeper out of state.

Police rescued the victim last year, just in time. At least, they rescued her in time to stop the sale. Her face had already become collateral damage.
