Trafficked by her own family: Brave survivor of sexual abuse reveals how paedophiles made her ‘star’
A woman has bravely recounted how she overcame a childhood of being gang raped, sexually abused by family members and trafficked.
Jessa Dillow Crisp, who is now 29 and lives in Denver, Colorado, only broke free from traffickers in 2010.
Her abuse started aged 10 in her home country of Canada where she was molested by members of her own family.
As a child, she was made to pose for pornographers, had to perform degrading sex acts and was raped in front of the cameras.
She was then sold to various pimps and friends of her family who abused her.
Speaking to MailOnline, she said: “I was brought up in Canada and the physical abuse, emotional abuse, mental abuse, and sexual abuse to include child pornography and sex trafficking was done in suburban neighborhoods, local brothels, and hotels.

The CDC reports that 1 in 5 children are sexually abused.
9 out of 10 of the perpetrators are never brought to justice and never appear on sex offender registries.
They are protected by New York State laws.
