Sex trafficking victim recalls tormented childhood

Her childhood wasn't so much stolen as it was sold. And in a courtroom Wednesday, a young woman who, beginning at age 12, was trained and used as a sexual dominatrix gave an impassioned accounting of her torment. Her mother was sentenced Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Kansas City to 15 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to commercial sex trafficking of a minor. Her name is not being printed to protect her daughter's identity.
