14 Year Old Sex Slave 'Forced to Sleep With 1000 Men' Sues Motel
A teenage girl in Philadelphia is suing a motel for more than $50,000 for knowingly facilitating sex trafficking, after she was allegedly forced to have sex with more than 1,000 men as a 14 year old.
The Roosevelt Inn in northeast Philadelphia, described by prosecutors as the “local epicenter of human trafficking,” is the target of the lawsuit, which alleges the motel allowed the pimping of the young girl.
“This child was forced into sex slavery, paid to do things with men double, triple, quadruple her age,” Nadeem Bezar, a lawyer at the Kline & Specter law firm bringing the suit, said.
The suit was filed against the motel, its manager, Yagna Patel, and parent company UFVS Management Company in the Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Monday. Since being filed, a number of other young women and adults have come forward to say they too were involved in sex trafficking at the motel.
According to the lawsuit, during 2013 and 2014, the then-14 year old, identified only as M.B, was held at the motel for weeks and months at a time, unable to leave. She was forced to have sex with as many as 1,000 men over two years and was dressed in sexually explicit clothing and “visibly treated in an aggressive manner.”
The motel allowed the girl’s traffickers to rent rooms and carry out their abuse, the suit alleges. Customers were attracted to the motel through online ads and would go to the front desk upon arrival, where they would be directed to the room.
