ANAHEIM (CBSLA.com) — Oree Freeman was 11 years old when she was forced into the child sex trade in Orange County.
Now, at age 20, she’ s speaking out to help other girls escape abuse.
Freeman’s story shows just how quickly children from disadvantaged backgrounds can be taken into a criminal sex trafficking underworld that exists just down the street from Disneyland.
Freeman shared her story with KCAL9’s Stacey Butler.
“It’s not just a sad story behind me,” Freeman said. “It’s a victory. It’s overcoming it.”
