Argentine court reverses sex slavery verdictDecember 17, 2013 @ 2:27 pm
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - A court in Argentina has overturned the acquittals of 10 people in a notorious sex slavery trial.
Ten of the 13 original defendants now stand convicted in the kidnapping and disappearance of a young woman who was allegedly forced into prostitution for "VIP clients" in provincial Tucuman.
Last year's acquittals sent shock and outrage across Argentina, prompting street protests and calls by political leaders to impeach the judges involved.
Now Tucuman's Supreme Court has reversed the verdicts and sent the case back for sentencing.
Argentine mother Susana Trimarco has spent a decade seeking justice in the case of her missing daughter, Marita Veron.
