Sexual Exploitation: Sexual exploitation takes many different forms. It involves the sexual abuse of children through the exchange of sexual acts for some kind of payment. The payment may be money, food, shelter, or any other basics of life.
Sexual Abuse: Using children in the creation of pornography, child prostitution, and coercing a child into engaging in sexual conduct qualifies as sexual abuse. Any parent or legal guardian that knowingly permits their minor to engage in child pornography or other illicit activities may also be charged with sexual exploitation of children.
Children: Individuals under the legal age of 18 are considered “children” or “youth” in the United States of America. The minimum legal age for an individual to consent to sexual activity under some U.S. laws is 12, though the age of consent in Michigan is 16.
