Los Angeles County Foster Youth Vulnerable to Sex Slavery

Los Angeles County has launched a new task force to crack down on sex trafficking of foster kids. County supervisors approved the plan Tuesday. In 2010, more than half of all juveniles arrested on prostitution charges came from the foster care system. County officials warn that sex traffickers are targeting youth in foster programs, using the system as a means to harvest more sex slaves. Pacifica's Dan Fritz reports from Los Angeles.
