National experts say there were 151 cases of sex trafficking reported in the state.

On Monday, the Loft CInema screened "Tricked," a film that examines the epidemic.

Researchers say sex trafficking often goes unreported because survivors are tightly controlled by traffickers and don't speak up.

To report a human trafficking crime, call 888-373-7888.
