You keep saying that is the average age as quotes by the FBI or whoever, I dispute that fact, try ...
After the highly publicized case of the boy whose torso was found in the Thames River, Scotland Yard made an inquiry to London education authorities about missing boys and found that between July and September 2001, 300 black boys had disappeared from schools — 299 of whom came from Africa and one from the Caribbean — and police fear thousands may go missing annually. Child welfare experts say the figures hint at the scale of child trafficking. End Child Prostitution And Trafficking (ECPAT) UK research has shown that in 2004, social services in 32 out of 33 London Boroughs were concerned about trafficked children within their care.
Children as young as 11 years old are enslaved in prostitution in Bradford. Of 100 girls under 18 encountered by workers from the aid group Streets and Lanes Project, the average age was 14 and the youngest was 11. Older pimps exploit them, lock them up in bedsits, and often deny them access to food or a toilet. The law is failing to protect them. In fact, the law often children treats children involved in prostitution as criminals instead of victims. The number of children convicted of child prostitution more than doubled from 1995 to 1996 — 210 children aged 17 and under were convicted of offenses relating to prostitution in 1996 compared to 101 children in 1995, and the number of cases rose from 263 to 287, including one of an 11 year old girl.
Data also reflects that prosecutions for perpetrators of sex crimes against young girls have fallen dramatically over a period of 10 years and suggests that laws governing age consent are disregarded. In 1985 there were 138 prosecutions of men who had sex unlawfully with girls under 13 but only 77 in 1995. In 1986 162 men were cautioned or found guilty of having sex with girls under 13, compared with only 94 in 1996. And, in 1986 there were 1,426 successful prosecutions of men who had sex with girls aged 14 and 15, compared with only 576 in 1996.
