What Constitutes Human Trafficking?

Under the federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), human trafficking can be any act which holds, transports, or recruits a person for the purposes of performing forced labor. Physical violence does not need to transpire in order for a person to be charged; coercion, fraud, blackmail, or the threat of violence can constitute legal grounds for trafficking. Federal regulations also differentiate offenses of labor and sex trafficking. A conviction for a sex-related crime may be met with additional punishments including registration as a sex offender.

With an aggressive defense, charges for human trafficking can be overcome in the courtroom. The prosecution must prove the case against you beyond a reasonable doubt and the attorneys at our firm understand how the charges against you are likely to be structured. We can help you to navigate every step of the legal process to see that your name is cleared.
