Human trafficking is a crime in and of itself. So the person would be a victim of that. Many people are victims of human trafficking and sold into slave labor.

She claimed he had spent thousands on prostitutes over the years while his kids went without tuition money. The guy was often not at home when he needed to be, causing all sorts of family problems.
This woman and her children are victims of their dead-beat dad/husband. Not prostitution.
Or, since we don't know the circumstances, perhaps the children are also victims of their mother since she chose the gem. Or, since we don't know the circumstances, perhaps the husband is also a victim because his wife refused him sex and/or companionship and he sought it elsewhere. But stayed with her FOR the children.
circumstances, prostitution didn't cause it.
Prostitution is a victimless "crime".
The fact that it's a crime is why these other actual crimes associated with prostitution happen.
