Human Trafficking Defense Attorney
Human trafficking is increasingly perceived as a severe problem in the United States and many other countries. Law enforcement agencies are increasing their efforts to prosecute the people who they believe have committed or enabled human trafficking. The courts do not take human trafficking accusations lightly.
As a consequence, human trafficking charges often trigger serious constitutional and civil liberties concerns. Law makers, ever mindful of the need to appear tough on crime, modify and create new sex trafficking laws with alarming regularity that try to lessen the Government’s burden of proof. For example, under 18 U.S.C. Section 1591, the federal sex trafficking statute, the Government may not even have to prove that a sex act was committed; merely transporting a child knowing that they will be caused to engage in a commercial sex act is sufficient to trigger criminal liability.
If you are convicted of human trafficking, you may face lengthy prison terms and hefty fines, in addition to social stigma such as lifetime sex offender registration.
Human trafficking is a complex crime that could also encompass many other crimes, including sex trafficking, kidnapping, fraud, and coercion.
