Description

Across the Washington State, kids are going door to door selling candy and cookies, and consumers buy thinking the money is going to worthwhile causes and groups. In reality it's going to adults, who are using the kids in violation of child labor laws, and as the investigation found placing kids at serious risk. Reporters uncovered cases of unsupervised kids being left in communities far from home, being held up at gunpoint, sexually molested, and even killed.
