Wisconsin Women Accused of Trafficking a Minor

An odd human trafficking case is unfolding in the mid west where two women from Wisconsin are being charged with forcing a young girl from Illinois into prostitution.

According to police reports the two women were advertising on Backpage.com under escort services.

Backpage was involved in a legal battle last year with Washington state over a law that required people advertising sexual services to verify their age.

Currently Backpage still allows ads by third party publishers that promote the sexual exploitation of children to appear on their website.
