Worthington Quoted in Article on Child Prostitution

By: Beverly James

Karen Worthington, director of the Barton Child Law and Policy Clinic, is quoted in the February 7 issue of the Rome News-Tribune  on child prostitution.

While the problem is usually associated with Third World countries, children are being sexually exploited in Georgia, Worthington said. "Most people don't realize how big of a problem this is in Georgia," Worthington said. "Atlanta is one of the centers for the commercial sex trade in the United States."
