22 Collier County hotels, motels accused of permitting sex trafficking, lawsuit claims in Naples, Florida

22 Collier County hotels, motels accused of permitting sex trafficking, lawsuit claims in Naples, Florida

The 22 hotels and motels named in the lawsuit are clustered along U.S. 41 and at the Interstate 75 interchanges, primarily at Collier Boulevard and Pine Ridge Road.  

The hotels tend to be affiliated with chains — Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Residence Inn by Marriott, La Quinta Inn, Best Western. They’re the kinds of places where families might put up out-of-town guests and businesses use for traveling employees. Many have poolside chickee bars, outdoor fire pits and pickleball courts.

The roadside motels, mostly along the East Trail, tend to be small and independently owned.  

“This is not just happening in some dirty part of our town,” Freeman said. “This isn’t isolated.”

Anyone CAN make a difference

Anyone CAN make a difference

Earlier this year, actress Carly Schroeder announced her bold decision to swear into the United States Army with one goal in mind: to fight human trafficking and other global injustice. In addition, O.U.R. is honored to welcome her as the newest Ambassador and Abolitionist!

Carly was introduced into publicity and acting at a very early age. She did print modeling, television commercials, and finally various TV series and movies starting when she was just 6 years old. She is fortunate to have a loving mother who did all she could to shelter Carly from some of the dangers and pitfalls that could come with being a child actor and having publicity and fame in Hollywood at such an early age.
