‘Sandy’ says her journey to a life of prostitution began when she was nine and her mother sold her for *** to pay for drugs.
She is now 17 and has completed her education thanks to the work of a shelter called Children of the Night in Van Nuys, north of Los Angeles.
She told Sky News: “There’s a bunch of young girls that go into prostitution because it is easier and fast money and that’s what everyone wants.”
