A group of Ashland High School students get a crash course in teen victimization, from a woman who knows what it's like to be a 'throwaway teen'.
     Dawn Schiller, who now lives in Eastern Oregon, was just 15 years old when she met her apartment manager in Los Angeles.
   He groomed her, seduced her and eventually sold her body to drug dealers.
    That man was the infamous porn star John Holmes... and their story became that of Hollywood legend.
     NBC-5'S Craig Smullin explains.
