Uber Driver Saves Teen From Child Sex Trafficking

On December 26, 2016, Uber driver Keith Avila was credited for helping rescue a teenage girl out of sex trafficking. He had a feeling that something was wrong after giving a ride to the young girl and two older women to a Holiday Inn, where the two women allegedly pimped the teen out to a man for sex. He called police to the scene shortly after dropping off the trio at the hotel. The two women were both arrested for charges related to pimping and pandering. Police found the teen in a hotel room with a 20-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of sexual activity with a minor, and has been released. According to Avila, it was the way the young girl looked and the conversation had in the car that led him to believe something wasn’t right and contact the authorities. “I looked at her in the eyes. She had this face of innocence and (looked) insecure,” he recalled. The teen girl was a runaway and as of when this story was published the authorities were trying to locate her family.
