Sex Trafficking Happens Even in Georgia

By Douglas Fox  Dec. 14, 2010 9:45a

Sex crimes such as sex trafficking normally involve one or more persons forcing another into partaking in a sexual act - this not only involves sex crimes, but often false imprisonment as well. Both men and women are victims and according to law enforcement officials, the business is booming in Atlanta.

It is booming so much in fact that a movie entitled "The Candy Shop" by Director Brandon McCormick of Atlanta was created to shine the light on the activities going on right in the city. McCormick said he decided to make the film after learning that approximately 500 girls are trafficked each month for sex in Atlanta. He says the film illustrates what happens when kids are sold for sex.
