Woman, 20, claims she ‘wanted to die’ after having sex for three years from the age of 15
A young woman who claimed she had reached a point where she “wanted to die” after having sex between the ages of 15 and 18 has been candid about her horrific three-year ordeal.
Allison Heagle, now 20, claims she was only 15 years old when she was cared for by an elderly man in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, whom she met through work.
“I really thought I was crazy, I couldn’t form full sentences and was always on the alert, everything became a threat,” she told the Daily star. “In simple terms, it was very traumatic. I was in a constant state of paralyzing fear and I honestly got to a point where I just wanted to die.”
The 20-year-old, who now works as a server and is an aspiring singer and songwriter, claimed she was trafficked and sold for sex in Colorado and later in Arizona, and was involved in alcohol and drugs on a daily basis so she wouldn’t fight. back.

Allison moved to Chandler, Arizona, but said the older man, who she initially thought was 21, ordered people to follow her there, where she was once again cared for.
Recalling the first time she spent an evening with the abuser, Allison claimed he sneaked her through the window of his parents’ house before giving her copious amounts of alcohol so she could “barely walk.”
She claims that when she finally came to, she was naked and surrounded by the sick.
Allison said that’s when the horrific three-year ordeal began.
She said it eventually led to her developing Stockholm syndrome, a mental illness in which many abduction victims become attached to their tormentors — no matter how badly they are treated.
“I was in constant fear, so even when I escaped, the only consistent thing I knew was my traffickers, so I would always return,” she added.
Allison, who claimed that her trafficker would often become entangled in various crimes, went on to say that as a result of the grooming, she began to press charges for his actions.
In January 2020, she was arrested on suspicion of burglary, theft, theft of a vehicle, criminal offense, identity theft and theft checking of stolen goods.
But while some of her friends eventually turn a blind eye to her problems and attribute it to drug addiction, Allison’s parents continued to search for her and used photos she uploaded to track down her location.

The turning point, however, came when a man arrived to install cameras at an Airbnb where she was being held captive.
Realizing she was in trouble, he gave her his phone number and insisted to text “popcorn” and her address if she ever needed his help.
Two days later, that text was exchanged and he helped her escape. According to Allison, it was just in the nick of time.
Speaking of her captors, she said, “They talked in front of me about what they were going to do and being sent to Mexico or killed were my two options.”
Now Allison has been through a horrible ordeal for two years and lives with her family again.

She has decided to speak out to warn others of the signs to look out for when it comes to a human trafficker. Among them are being offered things you don’t have or wouldn’t want — like money, drugs, and a place to live.
Allison, who recommended visiting humantraffickinghotline.org, said sex traffickers often offer extravagant lives and pray for the most vulnerable — from addicts to the homeless.
She went on to say that someone who is trafficked is often underweight, bruised and constantly in the company of a man or woman.
She recently started a GoFundMe Page, where she wrote: ‘I am facing legal repercussions for the man who severely mistreated and trafficked me.
He is currently in prison so he will not be held responsible for the same charges. Little backstory, I took the blame for what he did and practically forced me to be involved. I knew it would part us.’
