Understanding Human Trafficking Charges

In recent years, human trafficking has become one of the fastest growing criminal industries in the world. This type of crime involves recruiting, transporting, or receiving a person by way of force, threats or other coercive tactics for the purpose of exploiting that person. In many cases, other crimes such as kidnapping and extortion may be employed in an effort to traffic individuals for slave labor or sexual exploitation. If you have been charged with sexual trafficking, you may be facing extremely severe penalties, and it is to your benefit to contact a firm who can work to fully protect your rights.

A person does not actually need to be transported for one to be charged with human trafficking. The focus in such cases is on the exploitation of the person (usually a child or a woman) for labor or sex purposes. Another element that federal prosecutors will focus on is the coercion of the person, as they will have been prevented from leaving in some manner. An experienced human trafficking defense lawyer in Miami will seek to obtain evidence or testimony that the accused did not engage in exploitative or coercive acts in an attempt to secure an exoneration in the case.
