Witnesses testified on the commercial sexual exploitation of American children within U.S. borders, and their subsequent rescue and rehabilitation. A panel of congressmen testified about legislation. Then experts testified about exploited children, including a brief video of an interview with a victim. Topics included the role of the Internet in this exploitation, focusing on Craigslist. Mr. Powell said that Craigslist would not be reopening the “adult services” section that it shut down earlier in the month. Craigslist legal counsel Elizabeth McDougall argued that in forcing Craigslist to remove a separate section for adult ads, lawmakers would actually be hurting their own battles against crimes like sex trafficking and child prostitution. close
