Description

The Journal-Constitution investigates teenage prostitution in Atlanta. The investigation focuses on the fact that prostitutes as young as 10 are going to jail while the adult men who exploit them go free. As a result of the investigation the state legislature passed laws making pimping minors a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison and allowing the government to seize assets of those involved in child prostitution. Eleven alleged pimps were arrested on racketeering after the series ran.
