What happened to James?

Age: 50

James regularly bought women to get him off. He drove the track downtown on McMicken St. and picked up a girl every week or so. He didn’t feel guilt over his lifestyle; after all, he was providing these women with the money they needed for food and shelter.

After being arrested for soliciting the services of a prostitute, James was sentenced to attend a John School program. Hearing stories first-hand of what life is like for a woman being trafficked by men like him, the stories of abuse, violence, and rape, James began to see the world he participated in and stopped paying for sex.
