Amid new Jeffrey Epstein allegations, here’s how to help a victim of child sex trafficking

Child sex trafficking is far more common than many people realize, experts say — but there are plenty of ways to help the victims.

Well-connected financier Jeffrey Epstein’s recent federal indictment served as the latest prominent case: Prosecutors on Saturday charged Epstein, 66, with operating a sex-trafficking ring, alleging he had sexually abused and exploited dozens of underage girls in exchange for money from 2002 to 2005.

He lured victims in New York and Palm Beach into massages that graduated to sexual abuse, prosecutors said, paying some victims to recruit additional girls for abuse. Another woman told NBC News on Wednesday that Epstein had raped her when she was 15, following a year of massages she gave him while he pleasured himself.
