FBI raids child sex slave ring, rescuing more than 100 missing teens in 76 cities.
The FBI announced that in a massive raid spanning 76 cities 105 kids, the youngest at age 13, were rescued.
Ronald Hosko, assistant director of the FBI's criminal investigative division said the nationwaide bust netted 150 alleged pimps.
The raid was the agency's largest action to date focusing on the recovery of sexually exploited children.
Law enforcement authorities said the fiends preyed on children from broken homes and had used the online classified site Backpage to sell the teens for sex, according to NBC News.
“The pitches tend to be: Girls are enticed with compliments or offers, do they want to make some money,” Assistant Director Hosko revealed.
“Then they are trapped into this cycle that involves drugs, that involves physical abuse. It may involve torture.”
