Description

KOMO-TV reports about "the tragedy of child sex tourism, and Americans' involvement in it... examples of American tourists who traveled abroad to third-world countries to have sex with children... we got a tip from Central America that someone in our region, the Pacific Northwest, was doing more than just having sex with children. Child prostitution opponents had heard he was selling girls, some as young as 14, for sex. We traveled to the man's club in Honduras and discovered the tip was true. We also discovered that man had been a registered sex offender in the US."
