Human trafficking: awareness fuels increased reports in Kentucky

By Nicole Ziege


Vicki Patterson, 5, poses for a picture in her home. Used with permission from Vicki Patterson.When Vicki Patterson was 3 years old, she said her mother bought her a brand new pair of pink underwear. These new “panties,” as Patterson called them, were meant for her to wear for child pornography.

While Patterson’s father was working, Patterson said, her mother took her to motor courts and motels by

the river where mats were laid out on the floor and large studio lights were set up for photography. It was at these locations where, Patterson said, she was sexually assaulted and abused by men.
