The Power of Coercion
Provided by Shared Hope International
Legislature passed in 2012 provided higher penalties, criminal liabilities, and asset forfeiture by convicted traffickers. This law also allowed the Attorney General to chair a new human trafficking task force that works with other agencies (including Switch) to investigate and address the human trafficking in South Carolina.

Most recently, in April 2015, Governor Nikki Haley signed a law that allows the grand jury to handle human trafficking cases which allows cases to be investigated and prosecuted across county lines. This law also expanded the definition of human trafficking to include prostitution and mandated the human trafficking hotline signs be posted in hospitals, airports, adult businesses, and public transportation areas.

Psychological break down begins
Sex becomes forced and violent
Pimp/Trafficker: I moved her way out in the country or to another city. When I left, I took her car battery with me.

Survivor: “I felt too guilty about leaving after an argument. I was also too embarrassed for my family to see my bruises.”

Pimp/Trafficker: I made her believe that the cops would hurt her. I had a friend dress up as a cop and hurt her children so she would never reach out for help.
Survivor: “At first, I felt excited to be in a new adventure, a new town. After a while, I felt I had no one to turn to– no where to go.”

Survivor: “I thought I couldn't trust the cops or anyone else for that matter.
No one was safe."
