St. Petersburg, Florida- One woman and six men were arrested after a lengthy investigation. The investigation began when six adults persuaded two teen boys(15 and 17 years old) to go with them. They are set to be charged with conspiracy to commit human trafficking, interference with custody, and sexual battery of a child under 16 years of age
Police believe that the two young teens were used as “sex slaves” while they were being held captive by the 6 adults shown in the photo.
This is absolutely heinous. These two teen boys are now undergoing treatment after they have finally been released from the six adults detainment. Where they were believed to be getting abused for up to a year.
The St. Petersburg Police started a months long human trafficking investigation where they learned that the two males were coerced into going with the adults on the online game discord.
This makes me wonder how many other children could be in danger on this game.
The six adults names are Mark Dennis, Andrew Dennis, Schwartz, Blasdel, Gauthier, and McGlamory. They are set to be charged with conspiracy to commit human trafficking, interference with custody, and sexual battery of a child under 16 years of age.
We need to watch our kids. Undeniably, this wouldn’t happen if parents pay attention to who their children are talking to. Whether or not your kid is 12 or 17. We have a responsibility to our kids. And, when we allow ourselves to get distracted. Bad things happen.
These online video games that our teens are playing are filled with predators. So, if you are going to let you child play them watch who they are talking to and don’t just assume that your kid will automatically do the right thing. The kids that I spoke of in this article were promised a better life on the game Discord by a 56 year old man.
