PENALTIES FOR HUMAN TRAFFICKING CRIMES
The penalties for a conviction of human trafficking are extreme, depending on the exact nature of the offense and how many charges there may be. For instance, if you were convicted of only having trafficked one person, you could face up to 20 years in prison. You could face more time if there were more individuals or if any of the individuals were harmed, such as sexually abused, assaulted, or suffered from other related crimes.
The law prohibits:
- Benefitting from human slavery or trafficking (knowingly)
- Engaging in a sex act involving a trafficked person or child
- Trafficking a person to be used for harmful or forced labor
WHAT ENTAILS FEDERAL HUMAN TRAFFICKING CHARGES?
