“For most of our trafficking victims this is kind of where we're going to start,” Jamie Manzer said, while giving a tour of the SASA (Spouse Abuse Sexual Assault) Crisis Center where she works.It’s a place that helps victims of domestic and sexual violence.“Then the gentlemen who had brought them there, who they thought they knew and thought were acquaintances of theirs, brought multiple men in, blindfolded them, forced them to have sex.They couldn't even tell me who they'd had sex with (or) how many times, they just knew it was over the course of several days that they were not permitted to have food.Jamie Manzer of SASA said it’s a challenge for trafficking victims to privately get help in everyone-knows-everyone smaller communities, and where isolation of victims in rural areas is a common tool used by traffickers. Sex trafficking is happening in Hastings and smaller Nebraska towns, and those being sold don’t want to be.“I think that once we can understand that piece of it, that every time you're looking at a prostitute, you're probably looking at a victim of human trafficking, my hope is that that subtle demand will be affected and that by consequence, supply will dwindle,” Manzer said.The age of a person's first sexual experience can determine romantic outcomes later in life, researchers from the University of Texas at Austin have reported in a new study published in Psychological Science.
Investigators allege they recruited a woman in Arkansas, brought her to central Nebraska, advertised her on Backpage and sold her for sex at a motel near a Grand Island truck stop.“If there is any kind of a viable prostitution market there is almost certainly sex trafficking in that location,” O’Meara said, “and the reality is there is a viable prostitution market adjusted for population virtually everywhere.”Fighting sex trafficking and especially getting help for those being trafficked is a challenge throughout Nebraska.

“Again, with cellphones or smartphones, all the buyer has to do is look on his phone for particular cities, state, rest stop, exit, and see if there's a person for sale.”Backpage is one of the online places Nebraska buyers are looking, and traffickers are selling.
It’s a classified ads site with sections for Omaha and Lincoln, but also Grand Island, North Platte and Scottsbluff.
Any day here it’s easy to find listings in the “dating” or “escorts” categories, accompanied by pictures and video that leave little to the imagination.
According to the study, parents should be concerned with the age that their children are beginning to take part in sexual activity, because the time when they start to explore sexuality is a key time of development of mental and physical health.
