Human Trafficking Charges Federal Defense Attorney

18 U.S.C. § 1581 and 22 U.S.C. 7102: Human and sex trafficking.

Human trafficking, particularly sex trafficking, involves bringing people across borders to work or have sex. Sex trafficking is a serious crime. Federal authorities vigorously investigate and prosecute such violations.

18 U.S.C. §§ 1581-1597 covers human trafficking, whereas 22 U.S.C. § 7102 covers sex trafficking.

Human Trafficking Laws

Our federal criminal defense attorneys at Todd Spodek’s Spodek Law Group can explain human and sex trafficking statutes.

Mann Act

The 1910 Mann Act makes it illegal to transfer persons over state boundaries for prostitution. The Mann Act punishes people traffickers.

Human traffickers often lure foreigners to the US with job offers. Traffickers let illegal immigrants enter the nation and compel them to work or prostitute to pay off their “debt.”

Federal Human Trafficking Laws

Federal law covers most human trafficking cases that span state or international boundaries. Federal criminal charges must be tried in federal court by a federal criminal attorney.

The US ratified human trafficking conventions. The 2000 federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) protects trafficking victims. Human traffickers face harsh penalties under the TVPA, and federal prosecutors may accuse them under RICO. The TVPA also empowers victims to sue traffickers for civil damages.
