Mexican women delivered to N.J. farms for sex with workers, authorities say

News on Modern Day Slavery

Sold into prostitution, the young women were forced to have sex with workers on New Jersey farms and in dingy brothels around New York — some with as many as 25 men a day, authorities say.

Most got paid nothing.

Today, federal authorities said they have charged 13 people in connection with the far-flung sex trafficking ring that transported dozens women and girls — including one as young as 14 — from Mexico to be put to work in the sex trade.

Prosecutors said the enterprise, which operated for at least five years, was part of a larger network of sex traffickers working a pipeline that stretched from Tenancingo, Mexico, directly into the New York region.
