CINCINNATI – In 1984, Marti MacGibbon suffered from a full-blown drug addiction and was sold into the multibillion-dollar sex slave industry.
A set of vulnerable personal circumstances set in motion what would be MacGibbon’s life as a sex slave. MacGibbon was addicted to drugs, living in her car and managing anyway she could.

“I wasn’t in touch with my family or friends. I was isolated and the person who trafficked me knew all of that.”
Thursday marked Human Trafficking Awareness Day around the world, and there’s a likelihood human trafficking has touched the lives of Tri-State residents one way or another.
In MacGibbon’s case, she was raised in a typical middle class family in Muncie, Ind. with a father who worked as a college professor. She was a successful standup comic who scored an appearance with Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show. MacGibbon said up until the appearance, she was a recreational drug user, but after the excitement of Johnny Carson, she spiraled out of control.
