The children who fall prey to exploiters frequently have prior involvement with the child welfare system, through child protective service investigations or placement in foster care. Several studies indicate that between seventy and ninety percent of exploited children have experienced child sexual abuse before they are first commercially exploited. CSEC students are actively pursued and controlled by criminals, experience extreme levels of trauma that result in negative relationships and challenges in accessing educational supports.
