Sex As A Weapon: A Hard Look at Sextortion
This week we are going to examine the case of Donald Kelly, a 36-year-old man from Manhattan, New York, who was indicted on charges of enticing a minor to engage in illegal sex acts, sexual exploitation of a minor and possession of child pornography. In this case the victim was an EIGHT YEAR OLD GIRL!
We are entering an age where a child’s first sexual experience may very well be a virtual sexual experience. Sextortion is the act of blackmail with a photo. Today thousands of sextortion-rings prey on available and vulnerable minors. They get sucked in believing they are communicating with another young boy or girl, but in-fact it is more likely a 52-year-old registered sex offender who is part of a large-scale ring of pedophiles preying on innocent young children. Many parents seem oblivious to the reality of their child’s situation believing their child is smarter than most and that they will be careful. The result: Instead of waiting for the child to grow up in a world of innocence, they EXPERIENCE SEX as a WEAPON. Their lives are changed forever. So who is at fault here?
In this show we will explore the statistics of how often this is happening and, even more importantly, we will talk about the impact on the next generation and what can be done to prevent it.
Join us Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 7a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as we take an in-depth look at the impact of sextortion.
