“We are disappointed that the focus of a local news story shifted so drastically to the misconception that the MGM casino is a hub for child exploitation. Our clinicians were using the casino as one example of potential opportunity to exploit young people. Our aim is to create awareness around an issue that is happening to young people through social media and other online networks much more prominently than in the entertainment settings. We do not consider the situations our experts encounter to be slavery, in fact circumstances are often subtle and manipulative, making it more difficult to identify. We are committed to working with local law enforcement and government agencies to identify warning signs and treat the young victims of commercial sexual exploitation.”
