Exploited Part II: Shattering the Lolita Fantasy

Tim Swarens

“Exploited: Inside the Dark World of Child Trafficking” is a 10-part series by IndyStar columnist Tim Swarens, with the support of a Society of Professional Journalists fellowship. Swarens spent more than a year investigating the lucrative trade where children are abused at low risk to buyers or traffickers. In “Part II: Shattering the Lolita Fantasy” Swarens documents that, uncomfortable with Dolores the rape victim, our culture turned her into Lolita, a “precociously seductive girl” luring men into her bed.
