A woman and former child sex slave, whose name was not publicly released because her abusers are all likely still alive, well, and very powerful, detailed her horrifying story to Cambridge News. A lot of the men were people who wanted to be quite violent.
There were men who had a lot of money and would pay for a long time. She noted that she and other children were kept at a local bar and were given drugs and alcohol before their elite abusers would pick them up and bring them places to hurt them. As a year-old girl, she explained that violence and coercion were used to keep all the victims in line and make sure they never escaped.
While some will try to dismiss her claims of slavery by saying a child can somehow consent to sex with adults, this victim explains that is not the case at all. They were, by all means, held captive.
