Jill was only 15 when her mother took her to a bar and asked her to flirt with older men. Slowly but surely, her own mother groomed her into the sex trade. When Jill would complain and say she would not want to do it, her step-father would beat her. For more than two years, Jill lived a nightmare. Her mother forced her to drop out of school and sold her every single night to strange men.

During an undercover sting, Jill was discovered by law enforcement. She was immediately referred to AI Justice, where her attorney assisted her with the difficult process of cooperating with law enforcement in the investigation of human trafficking by her mother and step-father. Her attorney has also ensured that Jill receives all the services available to her, including housing, medical care, and crucial counseling.

Jill was a conditional lawful permanent resident. However, her mother and step-father never filed for permanent residence status. Jill’s attorney is currently working on the petition to remove the conditions on Jill’s status so that she can obtain permanent residence. At Jill’s request, we are also working on the possibility of reuniting with her biological father.
