Marie, a former prostitute

9 of 12
 
Marie says her pimp kept her on the move, moving her through three states. Every day, Marie claims she was given a quota and turned up to 12 tricks a day.

When her pimp became violent, Marie got the courage to leave and returned home to her family. She was on the streets for eight months and estimates that she had sex with 300 people.

Marie's mother says she hopes their story will be a warning to parents. "When you come from a family like ours, prostitution isn't even something that you would even think about would happen," she says. "If it can happen to our family, it can happen to anybody."
