Professor Loretta Stalans Receives Grant to Study Sexual Exploitation of Minors.

Dr. Stalans in collaboration with Dr. Mary Finn, Professor in the Department of Criminal Justice at Georgia State University, received a grant from Georgia State University to examine the use of technology in the sexual exploitation of minors involved in prostitution. This study will interview individuals who buy sex or who manage sexual providers and will examine posts of by these individuals on an erotica website. The study will assess how technology is used in the recruitment and management of providers, examining how the niche sites, forums, and websites used to discover local “legitimate” adult erotic venues are used to facilitate access to minors, and how individuals involved in this business think about this enterprise and conduct their business.
