Demand Criminal Justice for Buyers of Sex with Children
America’s youth are at risk because Demand for Sex Acts with Children drives the market of exploitation.
Little has been done to address the culture of tolerance or confront the obvious conclusion that penalizing buyers is essential to protecting our youth from becoming prey.
In a very limited number of cases, a buyer has been convicted federally under a provision of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, and this needs to be developed for greater applicability at the state level. Enactment of good laws at the state and federal level are essential but just the beginning. Enforcement of these laws will be the deterrent necessary to stem demand for Commercial Sex Acts with a CHILD.
In what is increasingly referred to as human trafficking in the media, there is little consistency in the language used to refer to the conduct of buyers. In many instances, in an attempt to obscure and coverup the offense of Buying Sex Acts with a Child, the offense is listed as SIMPLE PROSTITUTION!
Out of 407 relevant cases identified largely through media sources, only 25 of those media outlets referred to a Minor Victim as a Prostitute; reflecting the attitudes that prevent these cases from being reported as serious offenses of Commercial Sexual Exploitation of a Child.
Penalizing buyers is essential to protecting our youth from becoming prey!!!!

Why are we seeing so much hate within the family structure???? I can remember when almost no one had to live(survive????) in this type environment. At first the Indifference left me thinking I had missed something. Now I recognize the fact that a large percentage, at the least, are indifferent for a reason.
A woman is already serving time in prison for abusing her step-son. But now, the Franklin County District Attorney says the abuse was so extreme, it killed the boy. Michele Hunter faces a homicide charge for the death of 7-year-old Billy Travis.
Kim and Bob Travis have a lot of love to give. They have 9 kids total; 5 are adopted. Billy Travis was one of them. Kim and Bob received a call for a foster child in 2011. He was recovering at Hershey Medical Center after a severe brain injury. Court documents state his step-mother, Michele Hunter, abused the then 4-year-old so badly he could no longer walk, see, or even eat. But the could didn’t even question whether they would take him in.
“We had always said that whatever call came in, is the call we would take,” said Kim Travis, Billy’s adoptive mom.
