I think this piece misuses the word “trafficked”. In my mind, that implies that someone was kidnapped and taken to an unfamiliar place, or lured there under false pretenses (like told they’re going to school or work as a nanny or something like that).

Based on what I read in this piece, it seems to me like every bad choice Jones made, she made willingly.

I wouldn’t mind reading this piece again were it rewritten to eliminate the spin, and if it did away with smearing trafficking and Jones’ story together.
