Idaho native needs help making documentary about India's sex trade

By Jake Melder. CREATED Aug 10, 2014

Tens of thousands of girls in India are trafficked into sex slavery each year. An Idaho native is making a documentary about this abuse and hopes to curb the problem.

Casey Allred, born in Rigby, has witnessed girls being kidnapped and sold as sex slaves in India. He says the poor and uneducated are targeted.

His film, "Stolen Innocence," will bring awareness to this issue, but he needs financial support. He started a crowd-funding campaign to help out the project.

"It's always been a dream of mine to essentially let the world know what is happening in India,” said Allred “This is happening around the whole world, but this is the epicenter. This is the biggest one [sex trade] in the world, is in India."

Allred only has 30 days to raise $100,000. All proceeds from the film will go to building schools in India.

Here's a link to Stolen Innocence's Kickstarter.
