From victim to impassioned voice
Woman exploited as a teen fights sexual trafficking of children
Asia Graves has reclaimed her life, found her voice, and taken back her name, three years after fleeing Boston to avoid being hurt again. Graves, a victim of savage exploitation by a child prostitution ring that operated along the East Coast, left her hometown in 2009 after serving as a key witness in a landmark federal case against the pimps who abused her and scores of other girls. But now Graves, 24, has decided it is safer to be seen and heard.
