'I Married A Mobster': Teen Trapped As Sex Slave Later Marries A Hitman

Wendy Mazaros started getting into trouble with the mob at a young age. On "I Married a Mobster," interviews and reenactments saw her story unfold from its troubled start when she was only 15-years old back in the 1970s. Wendy ran away from home to be with Teddy, a mobster who was 26. Only, Teddy didn't want her for him.

Instead, he sent her to what turned out to be a brothel in a Texas motel. "If you don’t answer the phone and you don’t do what they tell you to do, you’re gonna end up in the back of this building," Mazaros said. "Buried."

While Mazaros was able to escape her brothel prison, she wasn't done getting wrapped up with bad men. She got involved with a hitman named Hanley, and this time she married him. When he was finally arrested and put in prison for life, Mazaros was offered witness protection. But she refused, instead deciding to go public with her story in the book "Vegas Rag Doll."

Additionally, she tours the country talking about her experiences, and giving motivational speeches.
