A girl has had a tormentful experience that is tantamount to walking to hell and back barefooted on hell’s fiery hot pathway.
She has been forced to carry out sexual favors against her consent for a staggering 43,200 times after being forced to have intercourse with at least 30 men each day for 4 years straight, according to reports from CNN.
Karla Jactinto, a 23-year-old woman, who was tricked into Mexico’s world-infamous human trafficking industry has went public about her torment at the hands of the country’s ruthless organized crime rings.
“They knew we were minors. We were not even developed. We had sad faces. There were girls who were only 10 years old. There were girls who were crying. They told the officers they were minors and nobody paid attention.”
Beaten and abused by pimps, she was forced to work from 10am to midnight. She fell pregnant to one of the pimps and gave birth at 15. The man used the infant as leverage, she said.
“I came from a dysfunctional family. I was sexually abused and mistreated from the age of five by a relative,” she said.
Jacinto was just 12 years old when a trafficker lured her away from her dysfunctional home life with gifts, money and luxuries.
The 22-year-old trafficker managed to persuade 12-year-old Jacinto into leaving to Tenancingo with him, which was a Mexican town in the state of Tlaxcala. Tlaxcala was a well-known hot spot for human trafficking rings and was a common place for victims to be taken to before being forced into prostitution or into some other labor.
Ms Jacinto lived with her trafficker for 3 months before she was taken to Guadalajara, one of Mexico’s largest cities, where she was forced to work as a sex-worker (prostitute).
“I started at 10am and finished at midnight,” said Ms Jacinto.
“Some men would laugh at me because I was crying.”
“I had to close my eyes so that that I wouldn’t see what they were doing to me, so that I wouldn’t feel anything.”
During her ordeal Ms Jacinto was attacked by her trafficker after he saw kiss marks on her neck from a customer.
Ms Jacinto was even once attacked by her trafficker after he saw kiss marks (love-bites) on her neck from a customer. “He started beating me with a chain in all of my body,” said Ms Jacinto. “He punched me with his fists, he kicked me, pulled my hair, spit at me in the face… he also burned me with a scalding hot iron.”
She also claimed that a police operation that she thought was there to rescue her and a group of girls while they were held against their will in a hospital ruined her hope for living on when the apparently corrupted officers began filming the girls and laughing. Some of the girls were as young as 10 and were forced to pose in compromising positions that outraged their modesty.
Ms Jacinto was rescued in 2006 during an anti-trafficking operation in Mexico City. Now aged 23, she is an advocate against human trafficking.
Ms Jacinto’s story has been verified by CNN with the United Against Human Trafficking Group and senior officials at Road to Home, a shelter Ms Jacinto lived in after being rescued.
Ms Jacinto’s story has been used as evidence to support HR 515, or Megan’s Law, which requires US authorities to make information available to the public regarding registered sex offenders.
