Story of 13-year-old Latina prostitute

Sex_sells_2 New York magazine published a must-read article about Lucia, a young Hispanic girl of Puerto Rican and Dominican descent who was forced to be a prostitute at the tender age of 13. Her history is the tragically real story of a terrible childhood that lacked love, guidance and support. The piece reveals Lucilia’s early years in foster care and her uncle molested her at 10 and her older half-brother raped her before she turned 13. She is preyed upon by almost everyone that she comes into contact with and that includes the Justice system which treated her as a criminal when she was merely a child that was forced by her circumstances into this horrible existence. Check it out here.
