The husband arrested recently for forcing his wife into prostitution on Craigslist "made her feel special," according to the wife's mother, the Sun-Times reports.
Clinton Danner, 32, of Rockford, Minn., met his wife of four years at church when he was 27 and she was 17. They began a relationship, and she became pregnant.
Three years later, the woman -- whose name is being withheld -- told her parents that she was being trafficked.
The trafficking began, the woman said, while she was pregnant.
The parents offered her support, but communication with their daughter grew increasingly infrequent. They last heard from her on Sunday, when their daughter called to say she was safe, but Danner was in jail after being arrested at a downtown Chicago Holiday Inn.
