What You Should Know About Human Trafficking
Human trafficking is among the most severe criminal charges in existence. It almost always counts as a federal offense, meaning the penalties for a conviction could very likely include prison time. Human trafficking can encompass several activities, including:
- Alien smuggling: Trafficking undocumented immigrants into the U.S.
- Forced labor: Coercing or forcing someone to perform labor
- Sex trafficking: Coercing or forcing someone to perform commercial sex acts
- Debt bondage: Making a victim repay their debts through work
State and federal prosecutors alike take these offenses immensely seriously. They do not hesitate to expend vast resources on the investigation and prosecution of human trafficking charges to make an example of perpetrators.
