The arrest of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft last week for allegedly soliciting prostitution at a Jupiter, Florida massage parlor has shed new light on the little-known industry of human sex trafficking. We’re going to talk with Yolanda Graham, M.D. Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health’s Senior Vice President and Chief Clinical Medical Office. Dr. Graham and Devereux are fighting against the $150 billion-per-year industry – which uses force, fraud or coercion to lure victims (often children) and force them into labor or commercial sexual exploitation – through its residential Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) program.
