Defending Human Trafficking Charges
Prosecutors pursue human trafficking cases aggressively. Successfully defending these charges requires a defense effort that is equally determined and if anything, more aggressive than the prosecution. In defending you, our attorneys will thoroughly investigate all aspects of your case. We will review the evidence the prosecutor has, and develop additional evidence of our own when that can strengthen the defense effort. Because human trafficking is a relatively new crime, many police officers and investigators do not have adequate training in this area. They make procedural mistakes that can be the basis for a successful motion to dismiss charges. We will contest the testimony of the police, investigators and alleged victims and make aggressive use of procedural motions whenever possible. Our goal will be to obtain a dismissal of charges, an acquittal or acceptable plea bargain. Federal law defines human trafficking as “the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery” or “sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age.”
