Demi Moore & Asthon Kutcher

A report from United States Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) shows that nearly half – 48 percent – of human trafficking allegations investigated between January 2008 and June 2010 involved allegations of adult prostitution, the Bureau said; 40 percent of cases pursued during that same time period involved children.

The report, Characteristics of Suspected Human Trafficking Incidents, 2008-2010 (NCJ 233732), was written by BJS statisticians Duren Banks and Tracey Kyckelhahn. The report can be found at http://www.bjs.gov.
