At first glance, year-old Sokha Chan might seem like your average young California girl. She has a lap dog named Chica, and her own car that she bought herself. But behind her seemingly charmed life, Sokha hides a dark past from her childhood that still haunts her to this day. Sokha grew up in a poor village near Phnom Penh, the capital city. She said she was just 7 years old when she was sold for sex to an American man named Michael Joseph Pepe, a former U.
Marine, who was then living as an ex-pat in Phnom Penh. She did not know why he had come to Cambodia to buy a child like her for sex. At one point, a man could be heard asking for a year-old girl. Another asks for a year-old, while another said he would take an 8-year-old.
The video was shot over the last two years by Agape International Missions, or AIM, an organization dedicated to fighting child sex trafficking in Cambodia. Despite progress made by the government to crack down on the issue, it is still a major problem in the country. Sokha will never have a childhood. Officials say the problem is getting better. Prostitution is now illegal, but Don Brewster says it is still rampant in Cambodia, operating out of massage parlors, bars and karaoke lounges.
And in some back rooms, underage girls like Sokha are still being abused and sold for sex. Sokha says she spent years shuttled to different illegal brothels, always locked in a dark room. Doesn't have the light, doesn't have the restroom, doesn't have nothing. When I sleep at night, I don't close my eyes … because I feel like they [will] call me out of the room, and do something on me. Sokha was freed by an NGO working with the Brewsters. They brought Sokha to their long running aftercare center, where victims of child sex trafficking come to heal.
The center is one of the multiple facilities AIM operates in Cambodia. The horrific undercover videos obtained by "Nightline" were filmed on the same streets where the Brewsters now live. The Brewsters said every building of their facility in Svay Pak, once known internationally as a hotbed for child prostitution , used to be a brothel that sold children -- some as young as 8 years old.
