At just 12-years-old, Karla Jacinto thought that she had met her Prince Charming who would save her from her impoverished life in Mexico.
“He bought me clothes and shoes. He told me ‘You’re going to be my princess,’ says Karla.
But three months into the relationship, her scam-artist boyfriend revealed his true intentions. It turns out, her 22-year-old “prince” was actually a pimp part of an organized crime ring based in Tenancingo.
Karla quickly went from living in a fairy tale to living out her biggest nightmare.
Her pimp sold her for sex all across Mexico, forcing her to keep a daily log of the men she slept with. She was forced to have sex with at least 30 men every day for four years without a single day off, according to reports by CNN.
“I started at 10 am and finished at midnight,” recalls Karla. “Some men would laugh at me because I was crying. I had to close my eyes so that that I wouldn’t see what they were doing to me so that I wouldn’t feel anything.”
The now-23-year-old estimates that from age 12 to 16, she was raped no less than 43,200 times.
