Despite such legislation, several cases of prostitution of minors have been revealed. In March 2018, within the Independiente football club, teenage players were encouraged to prostitute themselves in Buenos Aires. According to the prosecutor in charge of the case, the prostitution ring involved other clubs in the region, such as River Plate and Temperley. Underage girls involved in other sports were also involved. In November 2018, in the province of Buenos Aires, women and underage girls, attracted through false advertisements by professional photographers, were subsequently held against their will and were prostituted in establishments. The photos were published on specific sexual offer websites. Suspects face punishments for sexual exploitation, exploitation of prostitution (including that of a minor), and child pornography (El Independiente, November 22, 2018).
